What we're about

Do you like classic films? Do black & white movies intrigue you? Enjoy watching genre-making flicks? No matter your story or preferences, you're with friends in our group! We will view movies from the 1930's through 80's and we try to meet about once a month. We try to make it a mix of classics being shown on the big screen and options in a private location. Let's get to know each other as we remember watching these movies again as if for the first time.
