Movie theater near hotel

We will be staying at the Sheraton on Wickham Road in Romulus for a few days next week. We would like to go to the show one evening to see the new Star Trek movie. Where is the nearest movie theater playing this movie in a safe area (I know that all large cities have areas that are better to avoid at night)? Thank you

1. Re: Movie theater near hotel

Romulus is a suburb of Detroit, about 20-30 minutes drive from downtown. The closest movie theatre showing Star Trek is the AMC Star Taylor 10. It is safe. To get there, drive east on I-94 (toward Detroit). After about 4 miles, exit I-94 at Telegraph Road (US 24) and go south. Take Telegraph Road south to Eureka Road and turn left onto Eureka. [Telegraph is a wide road, divided by a wide, grassy median.]

Note, this will be a so-called "Michigan left", which means that instead of actually turning left (east) at Eureka, you instead will go through the intersection of Telegraph and Eureka, staying in the left turn lane. Shortly after the intersection, you will see a left only lane that will enable you to make a legal U-turn through the median and go north on Telegraph about 100 yards to Eureka. Since you will now be going northbound, you will need to turn right at Eureka, hence the Michigan left.

The theatre is on Eureka Road, a couple of miles east of Telegraph near the Southland Center.

If you are up for a 20 minute or so drive into Detroit, the Detroit Science Center is showing it on their IMAX screen.

Great idea tev9999

The Science Center has Michigan's only Dome IMAX theatre, which really would be an excellent place to see Star Trek. It is more of a drive than the regular theatre in Taylor (and around rush hour likely more than 20 minutes), but it also would be a better movie-going experience as well. For dinner before or after the show, you could go to Detroit's Greektown, with its concentration of Greek and other restaurants, as well as one of the city's three casinos.
