Potluck Movie Night: Blackfish

Hello TVSC! 

Join us for a potluck dinner and a movie at the Olde Cary Commons! 

For our first of hopefully many movie nights, we will be watching Blackfish:

Blackfish tells the story of Tilikum, a performing killer whale that killed several people while in captivity. Along the way, director-producer Gabriela Cowperthwaite compiles shocking footage and emotional interviews to explore the creature’s extraordinary nature, the species’ cruel treatment in captivity, the lives and losses of the trainers and the pressures brought to bear by the multi-billion dollar sea-park industry.

This emotionally wrenching, tautly structured story challenges us to consider our relationship to nature and reveals how little we humans have learned from these highly intelligent and enormously sentient fellow mammals.

--

As a courtesy, please consider your RSVP carefully and only RSVP yes if you plan to be available to attend. If you RSVP and find out later you cannot attend, please be polite and update your RSVP so other members can fill your spot. Any TVSC member who misses 3 or more events without updating their status will be asked to leave the group.

If you think you may want to take leftovers home, please consider bringing your own container(s). Finally, please remember that members and guests are expected to order vegan food at TVSC events.

    I had a very good time. The food was delicious, I met wonderful people, and the movie was enlightening. I would love to do this again. Any movie would be fine and I would love if recipes were shared. My biggest challenge is feeding my husband and son delicious vegan/vegetarian food and they would have loved the buffet last night (as did I). I look forward to the next event I can attend.

    Hi everyone! That filled out quickly! If you're interested in joining us and didn't make the list, please RSVP and add yourself to the waitlist. I may be able to fit a few more people once I evaluate how I will do seating.

    Can't wait for movie night!

    Unfortunately I have other plans for New Year's Eve, but Blackfish is a fantastic movie! I've seen it all the way thru twice and parts of it about 5 times. Louis....if you ever need some animal documentaries to show, I have a number of really good ones you can borrow.

    December 23, 2013

    • Beth

      Ooops, thanks John!

      December 23, 2013

    • Beth

      I'll leave the spots for people who have not seen the documentary, but would love to attend another one of these movie nights and would be happy to provide the animal documentary :).

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
