It all started with Roman Polanski's "Chinatown" (1974) in October 2011. Since then we've really evolved (still evolving) in to a unit of Chicago film lovers who can't stop talking about all the things we love about film. Right now we have two meetups that meet regularly a month, one that's more structured by focusing on discussing one film, like "Chinatown", at Argo Tea, then we also have a "social" meetup where we can go wild at Wilde Bar & Restaurant, with no structure or limit to our discussion. For 2014, my co-organizer Marissa L. will be leading discussions on more controversial films.
What we have in common is a passion for the art of film, history of film and relevancy to what we see today. We are the cinephiles of Chicago. Look forward to seeing you at the next meetup!
