Admission is $5 per feature. In a press release, organizers say "other surprises are planned," and advise purchasing a ticket ahead of time as they expect the screenings to sell out. As a reminder, their concession counter is cash only.

Bowie died at the age of 69 on Sunday due to liver cancer. Read Detroit musicians' reactions to Bowie's death here.
