We will be starting by sharing a pot-luck style dinner, and following with the movie, which will be shown on a 70 inch HDTV with surround sound. We can have a discussion about the movie afterwards….or we can just shoot some pool and socialize. :) This will be a casual event in a low-key setting with a smaller group of people. So if this is your kind of thing, come on over, relax, eat, drink and hang out with old and new friends!
Plates, utensils, napkins, etc. will be provided. Some snacks and drinks (beer, soda and bottled water) will also be provided.
Please bring a main/side dish. And everyone is welcomed to bring their favorite beverages. Please post what you will bring. If you're bringing a guest, please have your guest bring a dish also.
Movie (start between 6:30 and 7:00)
Title: The Lives of Others (Germany, 2006)
Language: German with English subtitles
MPAA Rating: Rated R for some sexuality/nudity
Synopsis: In 1984 East Berlin, an agent of the secret police, conducting surveillance on a writer and his lover, finds himself becoming increasingly absorbed by their lives.
The address will be emailed the day before the event to those who RSVPed.
There are two cats in the house. It should be OK, though, even if you're allergic, since the basement (where the TV is) is off-limits to cats at all times. Plan accordingly (i.e. bring allergy meds) just in case.
Please feel free to park in the driveway as it is big enough for several cars. There will be ample street parking, too.
