    12 Years a Slave has received a number of great awards.

    It has also received a 97% on the Tomatometer.


    Based on an incredible true story of one man's fight for survival and freedom. In the pre-Civil War United States, Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery. Facing cruelty (personified by a malevolent slave owner, portrayed by Michael Fassbender), as well as unexpected kindnesses, Solomon struggles not only to stay alive, but to retain his dignity. In the twelfth year of his unforgettable odyssey, Solomon's chance meeting with a Canadian abolitionist (Brad Pitt) will forever alter his life.

    See the NCMA event page:

    Cost: $5 for general admission, free for members

    Please review the NCMA policies, no alcohol....  : although you can buy stuff over there.

    Notes about potluck: 

    - Bring enough food to share with others, up to you how much. - Each person is responsible for their own plates, cups, napkins, and utensils, or feel free to cooperate with others on what to bring.

    Come on over, looking forward to see all my friends and make new ones.


    ps  -  I will update as needed and keep an eye on the weather, after all it is an outdoor event...
