Hi everyone,
On occasion, I get asked how we pick the
movies.  First of all, each organizer selects their own movies so I am
speaking about myself.  I try to do a balance between foreign films,
independent movies, documentaries and the occasional classic.  While
we sometimes we do crowd pleasers like "Before Midnight", my goal is to 
get a
group of people together to see a film that they wouldn’t have seen
otherwise.  I research films and just think how the group might respond 
to
a film.
Sometimes the concept works better than the film
ever did, but people rarely walk out saying the movie was a waste of 
time.
Sometimes it didn't connect but they redeem themselves afterward as you 
discuss
them.  That is my philosophy.  Others have different approaches.
If there is a movie you want to see (whether it
is popular or not), we are always looking for additional people to help
organize.  Plus, you might get a free movie out of the deal
too!
PAST EVENTS
Thanks to Lynda for organizing "Much Ado".  The group
was mixed on the film but everyone thought it was well-done, just some
liked it better than others.  The Wiki Leaks film last Sunday was liked 
by
almost everyone and really put this whole leak story together, at least 
in my
mind.  Two great events and more coming
up.
UPCOMING
EVENTS
Fill the
Void, Cedar Lee, Sunday, July 7,
4:45
An intimate,
insightful, respectful and moving film which follows life among the
ultra-Othodox Haredim Jewish community in Tel Aviv, Israel.  A 
heartwarming
comedy not to be missed.

Something
in the Air, Cinematheque, Friday­, July 12,
7:15
This is a
current French film that takes place in the 1960's, an era that seems
fascinating back then.  Plus going to dinner at l'albatross afterward 
for
French cuisine seems so fitting.  Thanks to Drew for putting this 
together.

Twenty
Feet from Stardom, Cedar Lee, Saturday July 13, early
evening
We know
about Bruce, Stevie, Michael, but what about the singers behind the
scenes?  Usually female, this documentary helps us understand their
backgrounds  http://www.meetup...­
The
Attack Cedar Lee, Tuesday July 16, early
evening
So what if
you found out your wife was a suicide bomber after she died?  How would 
you
remember her?  How would you explain her to others?  This is
fantastically rated film that should provoke much discussion.

A NON-FILM EVENT - Friday, July 19,
7PM - 7 Mile Isle at the Shaker Nature Center
While it may seem like all I do is watch
movies, but in fact I am on the Arts Council board and we have an 
inexpensive
evening of food, drink, nature and performances by 7 Mile Isle at the
Shaker Heights Nature Center.  It would be great to see a  number of
you enjoying a unique concert (with audience participation) under the
stars.  I will have a place set up for everyone to meet.  The $25
admission also includes food and beverage.

OTHER FILM OPTIONS
Cinema at the Square comes out in August.  It
opens with Grease and ends with Annie with a full slew of classic films.
Now that Playhouse Square has so many nice places to eat and soon an
impressive chandelier, take a look at some of the dates and maybe we can
schedule a movie or two.  Thanks to Valerie who is going to
organize a movie or two.

Made in
Cleveland is showing at Atlas Theaters this week and possibly
next.  If anyone wants to schedule a Cleveland film that
didn't tie up the city for a month, this is it.  Playing
at area theaters. http://www.atlasc...­
The Cleveland Heights-University Heights Library has a film
festival going on if anyone is interested in organizing something.
