Several folks have been asking for another Movie Night. Below is a list of movies on offer (this assumes I can get a copy.) Please review this list and then go to the Polls section of our Meetup page and rank your selections. TBD on the location.

The Emperor?s Club

Staring: Kevin Kline and Emile Hirsch
Year: 2002
Summary: An idealistic prep school teacher attempts to redeem an incorrigible student.


Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Staring: Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet

Summary: A couple undergo a procedure to erase each other from their memories when their relationship turns sour, but it is only through the process of loss that they discover what they had to begin with


My Dinner With Andre

Staring: Wallace Shawn and Andre Gregory
Year: 1981
Summary: Wallace Shawn and Andre Gregory, apparently playing themselves, share their lives over the course of an evening meal at a restaurant. Gregory, a theater director from New York, is the more talkative of the pair. He relates to Shawn his tales of dropping out, traveling around the world, and experiencing the variety of ways people live, such as a monk who could balance his entire weight on his fingertips. Shawn listens avidly, but questions the value of Gregory's seeming abandonment of the pragmatic aspects of life.


Stranger Than Fiction

Staring: Will Ferrell and Emma Thompson
Year: 2006
Summary: An IRS auditor suddenly finds himself the subject of narration only he can hear: narration that begins to affect his entire life, from his work, to his love-interest, to his death.


2001: A Space Odyssey

Staring: Kier Dullea and Gary Lockwood
Year: 1968
Summary: Mankind finds a mysterious, obviously artificial, artifact buried on the moon and, with the intelligent computer HAL, sets off on a quest.
