Tired of multiplex fodder? Looking to see some intelligent movies? This is the group for you. The goal here is to see the cream of current releases and then discuss. It won’t be rigidly targeted at art-house movies; anything halfway intelligent will be considered. In general, we will avoid summer blockbuster / TV show adaptations / superhero / chick flick type movies.

Location-wise, we will initially be focused on what's available in downtown Portland, namely the Nickelodeon on Temple St, and the Portland Museum of Art.  Other locations will of course be considered
