Pop to speak at DIA

An advance screening of renowned director Jim Jarmusch’s new documentary “Gimme Danger,”will be presented at the Detroit Institute of Arts’ Detroit Film Theatre at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 25.

Combining concert footage with animation and engrossing reminiscences “Gimme Danger” documents the story of The Stooges, one of the greatest rock ’n’ roll bands of all time. Jarmusch uncovers priceless anecdotes about the band’s stylistic evolution, right down to the way that Iggy’s fascination with Egyptian pharaoh movies influenced his stage presence.

The event features a discussion with Michigan music legend Iggy Pop and Jarmusch, moderated by Ann Delisi, host of WDET’s Essential Music program. Advance tickets are strongly recommended.

The special program is in advance of the run of “Gimme Danger” at the DFT, showing Oct. 28-30 and Nov. 4-6. Tickets for these showings beginning Oct. 28 are also available in advance

Tickets are $15 and are available in advance at dia.org, in person at the DIA’s box office or by phone at 313-833-4005. Advance tickets are strongly recommended.
