“American Dream: Detroit,” according to a release, “celebrates the golden age of the Motor City.” The documentary chronicles the experience of some of Detroit’s greatest musicians, including Alice Cooper, Francis Ford Coppola, Jerry Bruckheimer, Aretha Franklin and Smokey Robinson and Alice Cooper. The May 15 screening will also feature a performance from Michael Bolton & Friends, shot live from The Grove in Los Angeles.
