Movies at the Metroparks: The Original Japanese Godzilla

With the DFT and the DIA currently under renovation, the Detroit Film Theatre is presenting a summer movies series at various Metroparks in southeast Michigan. In celebrating the 60th anniversary of the original monster movie that entirely changed movie entertainment, the DFT will be having three showings of the original Japanese film Godzilla. The classic 1954 movie was directed by Ishiro Honda and is still heralded as the best the franchise has ever seen. The screening will feature a restored version in Japanese with English subtitles. Each movie night will be prefaces with a short reel from award-winning Michigan student filmmakers. Screening begin at 8:45 and admission is included with park entry. Godzilla will screen at Kensington on August 1; Stony Creek on August 8; and Willow on August 15.

Powerful Lake Erie wave photos show the wilder side of our Great Lake

Metro Detroiters might think the waves on Lake Erie small and relatively unnoteworthy. On windy days, choppy waters draw the occasional surfer…

By Vince Grzegorek

“It was during an intense wind storm in the fall of 2014 that I first witnessed the powerful waves Lake Erie can generate. Lake Erie is the shallowest and the warmest of the five Great Lakes. And the waves I capture on this lake are generally two-fold. There are the main lake waves, which are generated from strong winds that whip up the water, and there are secondary waves that are created when these waves crash into barriers near the shoreline.”
