Meet other lovers of the arts! We will be attending films, theater readings, book clubs and exploring the role of arts in ethical living. There will be many events each month to choose from.

Some regular events each month will include:


1. Ethics in Film- films are chosen for their ethical issues and a short discussion follows.


2. Ethics and the Theater- These are readings that include both professional and amateur actors and directors- a wine and cheese reception starts the evening and the play is followed by a discussion.


3. Contemporary Documentaries- These are shown in the afternoon and are on a variety of subjects.


4. Ethics in Literature- a monthly book club



We will also have the occasional musical event and anything else that comes up!


Most events will take place at the New York Society for Ethical Culture at 2 West 64th Street in Manhattan. Keep in mind that these events will be attended by many not on this meetup so don't worry that they will be canceled or underattended!

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.
