As of today, The Daily Grind Coffeshop in Mansfield is out of business, CLOSED, kaput. This is very bad news for many reasons. It was a cozy place with good, inexpensive beverages, food and even ice cream, comfortable furniture, a fireplace, Wi-Fi... Let me know if you know of another venue where we might show classic movies that are not recent releases.
We need a new meeting place, even for our next scheduled screening of Anna Karenina. Worst case scenario: We can meet at my house where I have a digital projector and screen, with the only admission price being you bring a snack or beverage (or bottle of wine). Since we won't be patronizing the coffeeshop (which I was hoping we'd do to help them survive), just spend what you would on a snack or beverage there on a snack or beverage to bring.

Group for those who like classic films, not just recent releases. We primarily meet at a clubhouse, coffeeshop, in public libraries, home theaters and other venues with projectors or big plasma screens (all over Dallas area - from Ray Hubbard to Joe Pool Lake). The Magnolia in the West Village often has Turner Classic movies showing on the big screen. We then talk about the film, afterward. Feel free to arrange another meeting place, screen a film favorite or become an assistant organizer and sponsor a screening near you. We'd love to spread out ... west to FtWorth and north to Frisco or Plano. I have a list of classics on DVD or VHS that I own, if you want to borrow one and host an event.
