Movie - "Inequality for All" and (optional) dinner

This movie comes highly recommended, and should be highly informative.  Sorry, this one isn't free.

Here's the info.

Synopsis:
   
Robert Reich is an economist, author, and educator who was U.S. Secretary of Labor under Bill Clinton and who teaches a course on wealth and poverty at the University of California Berkeley. Since the mid-1980s, Reich has been outspoken on the issue of the growing divide between America's rich and poor; in his book Aftershock, Reich presents his argument that this gulf is slowly but surely wiping out the middle class, and will lead to an economic catastrophe if left unchecked.

Filmmaker Jacob Kornbluth presents a powerful look at Reich and his theories in the documentary Inequality for All; featuring footage from Reich's lectures to students as well as interviews with the author and his conversations with Americans from many walks of life, the film provides disturbing evidence of the roles stagnating wages, growing personal debt, an economy based on consumer spending, and the decline of manufacturing are playing in the weakening of the American economy. Inequality for All received its world premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

As an option, we will meet at the Hornet (which is on the corner of 1st and Broadway, just south of the Mayan) for dinner.

    If you are coming to dinner, I would purchase your ticket, before dinner. If you are not coming to dinner, I would think that getting to the theater by 7:00 would be early enough.

    What time should we get to the theater to ensure that tickets are still available?

    Sorry I can't make it that evening - I have an annual meeting that night. Looks really great though. Did a phone conference call with Robert Reich and Dean and 3500 other people the night of the opening. They are trying to get it shown in more theaters. Might be something that we can get done. See their website.
