Check-In:
Once you enter the theatre, go to the check-in table to the left located at the bottom of the stairs. There will be two check-in lines: A-John, and Jordan-Z. If your ticket was purchased under another name and your sponsor didn't provide your name and you weren't told by Melanie that you were added to the guest list under your name, you'll be under the sponsor's name. Please have your ticket or donated ticket code handy (electronic is okay). The first 120 program handouts contain a coupon from Wilde Café that can be used anytime.

Casual Reception Discussion Space:
Meet us afterwards at the special space provided to us by Wilde Café & Spirits and enjoy the special menu they put together for us (attached). Our section will have our place cards on each table. You'll place your food and drink orders and pay with the bartender.

Eat and Drink while You Watch:
The theatre allows in food from the restaurant that's connected through a corridor, Pracna on Main (but please save your appetite for drinks and food at Wilde Café as they've worked hard to put together a great space and a great menu for us!).

Someone Still Needs a Ticket? Questions or concerns? Message me.

We'll see you soon!

EVENT PROGRAM:

1. Introduction

2. Movie Presentation
"The Mask You Live In follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity. Pressured by the media, their peer group, and even the adults in their lives, our protagonists confront messages encouraging them to disconnect from their emotions, devalue authentic friendships, objectify and degrade women, and resolve conflicts through violence. These gender stereotypes interconnect with race, class, and circumstance, creating a maze of identity issues boys and young men must navigate to become 'real' men. Experts in neuroscience, psychology, sociology, sports, education, and media also weigh in, offering empirical evidence of the 'boy crisis' and tactics to combat it. The Mask You Live In ultimately illustrates how we, as a society, can raise a healthier generation of boys and young men."

3. Casual Discussion Meetup
