Friday, June 5, 2015 | Live Jazz 7:00pm | Film 9:30pm
This 2015 Cinetopia Festival will open on Friday, June 5th with a FREE outdoor screening on the DIA North Lawn of the stunning new animated film Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet.
The Prophet is among the most popular volumes of poetry ever written, having been published in over forty languages since its publication in 1923.
The book’s timeless verses have been given new form in this anthology film.
Actor-producer Salma Hayek-Pinault spearheaded this ambitious project, which also includes the voices of Liam Neeson, John Krasinski, Alfred Molina, and Frank Langella.
As their story unfolds, several of Gibran’s most cherished essays — on love, work, children, marriage, and freedom — are brought to life in vignettes directed by some of the world’s foremost animators, among them Tomm Moore (The Secret of Kells) and Bill Plympton (Idiots and Angels).
With a score by Gabriel Yared that includes contributions from Glen Hansard, and Yo-Yo Ma, Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet it is also a musical collaboration, a richly spiritual experience worthy of Gibran’s lyrical book.
This festive kickoff evening will begin at dusk (7pm) on the DIA North lawn with a live jazz interpretation of – Holst’s The Planets by the Mike Jellick Ensemble,
followed by the film screening at sundown (9:30pm).
A complimentary bike valet will be hosted by the Hellenic Museum, and Azul taco bar will be serving inside the DIA’s Kirby St. entrance.
This event is presented through a partnership of the Detroit Institute of Arts and Midtown Detroit Inc.

FRIDAY, April 12, “¡La Peña Mundial!” is hosting TANGO CALLEJERO, an unique TANGO DANCE PARTY at La Strada on East 4th Street in down town Cleveland starting at 8:00 pm. Come for dinner to either watch Cleveland’s fantastic tango community or join in and dance!
NO COVER… FREE ENTRANCE!
La Strada which means “The Street” in Italian, at 2050 East 4th Street, next to Lola’s and near the House of Blues, succeeds in creating the feeling that you are outside on the street in the old world. As such, La Strada is the ideal place to hold a “street tango” party, if the weather is nice we could actually dance outside also! 🙂
Come and enjoy La Strada’s incredible Italian and Mediterranean cuisine. Have dinner before the dance or during, either way is fine because there are plenty of tables. Some with a view of the dance area and some away from it where it’s more quiet. This is a party! Invite everyone you know regardless if they tango or not, they will have fun!
Mostly TRADITIONAL TANGO will be played at Tango Callejero but you will nuevo and alternative tangos also…
As it stands on any evening La Strada’s old world street atmosphere is wonderful but on this evening we will transform La Strada into even a more romantic and exciting place to dance tango!
The entire tango community is coming out for this special event to share tango with the community at large. Dance or not, it will be a very romantic evening! Tango Callejero receives a high level of interest so don’t miss this special tango dance event.
Valet parking is available right by the entrance to La Strada so no matter the weather dress up and come down for an elegant old world evening of Tango dancing. On the same block is a very large garage that provides very inexpensive parking.
TANGO CALLEJERO literally translates from Spanish to “Street Tango”.
