Fifteen years ago, Eminem's 8 Mile made its Detroit premiere at the former Phoenix Theatres on — where else? — Eight Mile Road. To celebrate the film's anniversary, the theater (now called Bel Air Luxury Cinema) will host a special red carpet screening.

The theater has partnered with Em's Shady Records for the event, which is set for 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 8. To drive the whole numerology thing even further, tickets are just $8 — with proceeds benefiting the Verses Project, a partnership with Michigan State University to bring music education to city students.

Tickets go on sale at noon on Wednesday, Oct. 18 at and Bel Air Luxury Cinema is located at 10100 W. Eight Mile Rd., Detroit.
