4788 Ridge Rd, Cleveland, OH
Okay, so it may be a stretch to say that this is an Independent film, but once in a while it is okay to see a film that may turn out to be quite enjoyable.
We don't usually meet at Ridge Park Square, but it is only 5 minutes west of 77 and Rockside and is much easier to get to than Valley View. Plus, we get to eat at a cool Cleveland restaurant.
Purchase your ticket and meet at the entrance to the theater at 6:30. Since the previews are interminably long, we can walk in about 6:35.
9:00 EATS and DISCUSSION
Aldo's is a Cleveland tradition. They have reasonably priced Italian as well as good pizza. It is a 5 minute drive from the theater (north on Ridge, left on Memphis. On the left right before Roadin road.)

Tips for improving your restaurant experience:
• Print a map or enter the address in your GPS ahead of time.
• Bring CASH to pay for your meal.
• When you arrive, ask to sit at the "Movie Group" table.
FIRST TIME MOVIEGOERS
Hazel and Gus are two extraordinary teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them - and us - on an unforgettable journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous, given that they met and fell in love at a cancer support.
It's a fresh, lively love story, brimming with humor and heartbreak, and lifted to the heights by Shailene Woodley, a sublime actress with a résumé that pretty much proves she's incapable of making a false move on camera
