I figure we may need to see some real sacrifice after finishing up on our taxes. Frankly, I know very little about Joan of Arc and hopefully, I will be learning a lot more. The most definitive and perhaps best version (it has a 100% on RT) was shot in black and white in the 1960's and is playing here in town.
Meet near the entrance door to the theater 5 minutes ahead of time or look for the group inside the theater or meet us afterward not too far from the ticket purchase area.
8:00 EATS AND DISCUSSION
Anthony's is one of the newer restaurants in Little Italy worth trying. It is on the south side of 12018 Mayfield kind of across from the church. Anthonys website [masked]
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.
Bresson’s Joan of Arc film, based on excerpts from the official trial transcript, attempts to humanize the saint whom he once called “the most extraordinary person who ever lived.” The movie catalogs Joan’s many humiliations and has such an accumulation of grim and horrific details that one critic branded it “an essay in sadomasochistic voyeurism.”
"This Austere and ritualistic version is considered to be one of the most accurate portrait of the the trial, yet."
The $5.00 yearly fee (or $1.50 for one movie) goes toward charges incurred for using the MeetUp website. You can access PayPal (see link in left hand column) or pay your fee to the Organizer at the event.

NOTE TO FIRST TIME GOERS
If this is your first movie with the group, there is no fee to attend.
This group has been successful partly because members have a genuine interest in meeting fellow independent movie goers. We don't always know where to look for you, especially first timers. Consider posting your picture and printing out the pictures of the attendees to help find everyone easier.
We have multiple meeting places:
- Entrance door to the movie in the theater hallway 5-10 minutes before the movie starts
- By the entrance door or ticket office after the movie
- Reserved table at the restaurant under the name "Movie Group"
We don't always sit together in the movie theater but if you see a bunch of people talking about good movies they have seen, it is probably us. Please join in. We are always happy to get new people involved.
NOTE TO ALL
In the world of Independent films, it is recommended that you check back a few days before the event to make sure the movie, restaurant, location or time has not changed.
