Hi, I'm Joan. I'm a lawyer/law professor who has been taking time out of the work force to take care of my 86-year old Mom. I like indie films and especially documentaries, and think it will be fun to have someone to go with.
This meetup group will focus more on enjoying independent and foreign films, and also supporting St. Louis' smaller movie houses (Tivoli Theatre, Plaza Frontenac Cinema, Hi-Pointe Theatre, Moolah Theatre & Lounge, Webster University, etc.). We are open to anyone who would like to join. We often meet prior to the film for dinner, and when there's interest discuss the movie after.
Why Monday? I really like the idea of starting the week with something we look forward to doing (and bonus less crowds!). For us "a case of the Mondays" will now mean watching a stimulating film with a group of great people, but sometimes we host special events on other days of the week.
Attendance Policy: If you RSVP, please show up. If you can't make it, take a moment to update your status. This is especially true if we have a reservation for dinner. I will let you know when we need a reservation. If you can, please let me know by noon the day of the event if there has been a change in your status (you can't -or can!- make it!).
Ticket Policy: Members are responsible for purchasing their own tickets. We sometimes attend screenings that are no cost, but tickets are first come first serve.
I'm not a film buff but I enjoy movies that are a little more quirky, and a little off the beaten path. If you agree I hope you can join us!
