Welcome to our group. We see movies at the Little Theatre on East Ave. in Rochester on the first Saturday of the month. We meet at 6:00 - 6:15 near the cafe behind the ticket booth for cinemas 2-5. I usually send out suggested movies from among the 6:30 to 7ish showings. This allows us to get out of the theater at about the same time for talk. Pair up with people for a movie or join the general group. We agree to meet afterwards at a near by restaurant, for conversation about the movie, life, or toward wherever the conversation leads.
Join us to meet new people, see an interesting movie, and have a nice night out with good conversation, connection and companionship. All are welcome.

Some good choices at the Little this Saturday. We have "Tracks" (PG-13, 113 min., in Little 1 (on East Ave) at 7pm), a story of a girls walk across 1700 miles of Australian desert. Looks like beautiful photography and an interesting character and geography study. The director John Curran, from Pittsford, will speak after the showing. Check out the review from the Telegram by Robbie Collin below.

There is also "My Old Lady" (PG-13, 104 min., in Little 2 at 6:30pm) starring Maggie Smith, Kevin Kline and Kristen Scott Thomas. A story of a son that inherited a Paris apartment from his recently passed father, only to find that the apartment has a tenant that he cannot remove (a quirk of French real estate law). According to the review below, Kevin Kline gives a career high performance in this genuine adult drama. Read the review below from Ebert.com written by Glenn Kenny.

There is also "Love is Strange" (R, 94 min., in Little 3 at 6:50p) starring John Lithgow and Alfred Molina as a recently married couple who have the world ahead of them, until they fall on hard times and have to move in with friends. A touching movie about relationships. Read the review in the NY Times by A.O. Scott.

Another choice is "The Skeleton Twins" (R, 94 min., in Little 5 at 7:15p) starring Bill Hader, Kristen Wiig and Luke Wilson. Two siblings reunite in their 30s for this dramedy, or sad comedy. Check out the review by Ebert.com written by Christy Lemire.

Meet at the Little between the Cafe and the ticket booth for theaters 2-5. Look for the group and ask "Is this the movie group?" We are a friendly bunch. Talk to others and then decide what you will see. If we have 10 or more members, mention that you are in the movie group when buying your ticket and you will get $1 off.
After the movie, walk down East Ave to The Golden Port for some good food, company and conversation.
See you at the movies.
