$5 Secret Cinema ~ New Hollywood! (Jun-20)

Join your fellow cinephiles on Thursday, June 20th for another unnamed classic!

"Secret Cinema" is the Maple's classic film series with a twist - You won't know which film you're seeing until the lights go down...

MEET/GREET in the lounge/bar area by the fireplace at 7:00PM after you have your ticket. Look for my MEETUP table tents. SHOWTIME is 7:30pm.

Tickets are $5 and includes FREE popcorn with any other purchase at the bar/cafe/concession!

We can now enjoy the Secret Cinema Series twice a month ~ featuring an "Old Hollywood" and "New Hollywood" selection on the first and third Thursday of the month respectively.

The Maple will use the pivotal year of (1967) as a historical dividing line, so if you come on the first Thursday, expect to take a trip way way back... If you come on the third Thursday buckle up for the wild worlds of 70's Hollywood and beyond!


The Maple has a new system for our group seating at secret cinema. At the time of purchase, simply indicate that you’re a member of "Meetup" – you will be given a ticket with a seat assignment, but you can feel free to sit anywhere in our block of seats. We'll have roughly (30-50) seats reserved in rows M-P.

What's your best guess?

HINTS from the Maple: Late 80's political drama.

June's selection has been curated by Adam Graham, pop culture aficionado and frequent Detroit News contributor.  Common sense media recommends the title for ages 16 and up due to mature subject matter.

~ AfterShow Q&A ~

Our presenter will follow with a discussion of the overall film and gage audience reaction. Also, occasionally The Maple will play Secret Cinema trivia for a chance to win great prizes! We hope you can stay and join us for the wrap-up.
