Boston has many venues such as the MFA, HFA, Brattle, Coolidge Corner, and local libraries offering movies which demand more from the audience than the typical Hollywood fare.

We view the selected film and then go to a nearby restaurant to discuss. Sharing thoughts and ideas from the multiple perspectives gathered, we learn from each other and also have some fun.

The goal of the group is to create a community for people who are interested in film and with that in mind, please RSVP with consideration for others.

As is our custom, we meet near the front row at the movie's conclusion. The organizer will hold a Meet-Up sign to make it easier to find us.

A great way to see interesting and challenging films that always lead to discussions which add a depth of understanding that makes each experience memorable.
