Life altering Cinema and Culture Club! Existential and surrealist movie masterpieces think: Ingmar Bergman, Eric Rohmer, David Lynch, Claire Denis, French & German New wave, Czech, African, Brazilian, Indian and even Wagner : movies to plunge your subconscious into a deep ameliorative trance, if you should so fancy.

Come as you are! This isn't about snobs and toffs but creating a vibrant, thoughtful, introspective, insightful space for enjoyable and edifying expression. This is about creating a time machine to take us into realms splendid and masterful: let the age drown in mediocrity if it wants, this is for those who chose to stand, sit, lie, squat or dance upon the shoulders of giants, to celebrate the human creative spirit and by that transform ourselves and our world for the better.

Let's revolutionize (the world) before Clive Palmer tries! In wide eyed wonder balanced with humility the goal is to create a nurturing space for where we can all drop our money making facades and just simply BE! Like children, without a care in the world.

So... Come for Coffee and chats and perhaps to wax philosophy. Discuss the characters onscreen for a self-psychoanalysis, maybe, even, a creative catharsis: the idea for the group emerged having witnessed my own transformation via the power of engaging with the themes that arise from thought and soul provoking cinema. Warning: may invoke reflections tending to insomnia!

Think! Carl Jung, Joseph Campbell, Sartre and de Beauvoir at the movies. In addition to in house screenings, there shall be Outings to the theatre, opera and classical music recitals and just maybe even record playing evenings, for those who share our love of nostalgia. Also Philosophical symposiums! Who said Brisneyland don't have culture! So... Join us, come do... Midnight in Paris...

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.

Bill, started New York City Gay Craft Beer Lovers
