This Meetup group is for fans of indies, documentaries, and international films.  Sarasota is fortunate to have Burns Court Cinema which is run by the Sarasota Film Society, a non-profit.  Burns Court shows the thought-provoking, beautiful, amusing, unusual, and non-adolescent films the mainstream cinemas are not interested in.  These films often better represent the experience of being human—joy, sadness, camaraderie, loneliness, discoveries, and blunders.  The Burns Court Cinema is located in a cute neighborhood in the middle of Sarasota.  Discussion after film.  Goal is to see movie every other week.

Parking for Burns Court…  I often look for street parking on Pineapple Ave or Dolphin St or Cross St.  The free parking lots on the east side of Orange Ave have reopened. An employee at cinema mentioned Oak St or Selby Lane just southeast of Pineapple Ave.

Though most of the Internet is free, unfortunately Meetup.com is not and costs organizer $12/month.  Please assist w/ $5 yearly fee to help pay the Meetup.com cost.  Thanks.  If you're more comfortable trying out an event before paying fee that is fine.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
