When: November 30,[masked]:30 PM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Meetup Description: Synopsis taken from Roger Ebert's review of the film:
At a time when movies think they have to choose between action and ideas, Steven Spielberg's "Minority Report" is a triumph--a film that works on our minds and our emotions. It is a thriller and a human story, a movie of ideas that's also a whodunit. Here is a master filmmaker at the top of his form, working with a star, Tom Cruise, who generates complex human feelings even while playing an action hero. Based on a short story by Philip K. Dick ('Blade Runner').

2002, PG-13, 146 minutes

Reviews:
5.0 Stars - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
This film is such a virtuoso high-wire act, daring so much, achieving it with such grace and skill...
5.0 Stars - Mike Clark, USA Today
It's hard to imagine wanting anything more -- even from a Cruise-Spielberg matchup...
5.0 Stars - Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
This is the kind of pure entertainment that, in its fullness and generosity, feels almost classic...

***PLEASE NOTE*** that this event will be posted on several meetups and is also open to the public -- it is not strictly a "meetup".

The film viewing is FREE. Cafe Libertalia's offerings will be available for purchase: French-press coffee, espresso, lattes, frappes, sandwiches & salads, baked goods and sorbetto. We request that you make a purchase or a donation.

People often hang out after the film to talk about it -- everyone is welcome to join in.
