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, Acanthus Cafe on East Ave (2 block walk from the cinema) 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.

There are some new selections at the Little this weekend. There is "The Kings of Summer"(Rated R, 95 min. in Little 5 @ 7pm), a coming-of-age story of three boys running away from society by building a cabin in the woods. Reviews say great acting, but a story that overexplains at times and pulls its punches. You be the judge.
Review from RogerEbert.com of "The Kings of Summer"
"The Attack"(Rated R, 102 min., in Little 3 @ 6:30pm in Arabic and Hebrew with English subtitles) is a story of a successful Israeli-Palestinian surgeon whose wife was a suicide bomber. Because of her actions, he longs to understand her and looses everything because of her actions. Emotional film.

As usual, arrive at 6pm or 20 minutes before your movie starts. We meet between the ticket booth and the cafe. Look for the group and ask "Is this the movie group?" If we have more than 10, we can ask for the discount of $1 off your ticket.
For this get together, we will be going to Matthew's on East Ave (just next to the Little 1 on East Ave.) due to Ancanthus being closed this Saturday. If you are the first there, just tell them we have a reservation for the "Movie Group." Sit with the people that saw your same movie and let the conversation begin.
If parking is a problem, there is a garage on Scio and East that is not too far away.
See you Saturday.
