What we’re about
Welcome to our group! We welcome friends from all ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientations, and age. We value diversity in all its forms and reject prejudice against immigrants and refugees. We watch and discuss valuable, meaningful movies. Please check out the many meetups already scheduled for the near future. We have a thing for edgy, boundary-pushing, and first of all foreign movies. Please keep in mind our no-show policy. If you can't attend a meetup you signed up for, please be kind and cancel your RSVP. After 3 no-shows, members are removed from our group for good.
Hope to see you soon.

- Let's watch 'THE JUNGLE" @ FACETS + FREE COCKTAIL RECEPTIONFacets, Chicago, IL
Elisa Menon, a 37-year old theatre director and actress lives in Gorizia, a small provincial town in northern Italy. Having worked for years locally, she is invited to join a theatre company in Berlin. She is just about to leave for Germany, when Hassan Zeidi, a 26-year-old Pakistani cultural mediator, contacts her and asks her to organise a theatrical workshop for some friends of his, asylum-seeking boys. Elisa is hesitant at first but accepts, mentally reserving the option to leave if called to work in Berlin. The workshop induces her to reflect on the intrinsic meaning of departure while it also provides the young migrants, hovering on the margins of city life, with the chance to confront themselves with the local residents by means of a theatrical performance staged in the Jungle itself.
We will meet in the lobby at 6.40pm.
THE SCREENING AFTER THE Q/A WITH DIRECTOR WILL BE FOLLOWED BY A COCKTAIL RECEPTION.
This is the opening night film of a series on Migrant Stories in Italian Cinema

- Let's watch "THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI" WITH LIVE SCORE! @ Music Box + dinnerMusic Box Theatre, Chicago, IL
This Halloween season, The Invincible Czars bring their nightmarishly fun soundtrack to the world’s first feature-length horror masterpiece, ***The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari ***(1920), which has inspired filmmakers like Tim Burton and musicians like David Bowie with its strikingly modern visuals. Its craggy edges, disjointed backgrounds, and heavy makeup have earned this dark fairy tale a reputation as the quintessential German Expressionist film.
The Czars’ immersive live soundtrack experience transports audiences back 100+ years with a chilling, tastefully modern score featuring an impressive blend of traditional acoustic and present-day electric instruments. The Invincible Czars return for two shows to the Music Box Theatre after their sold out 2022 screening and performance of Nosferatu*.*
You can buy your ticket at the box office or here: https://musicboxtheatre.com/films-and-events/the-cabinet-of-dr-caligari

Martin Scorsese’s epic drama with Leo DiCaprio (3 hours, 27 min) about the killings in Osage territory in the 1920s is a film not to be missed. It's already a serious Oscar contender. The film is based on David Grann's fantastic homonymous book ("A twisting, haunting true-life murder mystery about one of the most monstrous crimes in American history").
