Upstream Color: Capitol Theater / XYZ Tavern

We are going to try this again.  Upstream Color is one of those great films worth seeing.

6:00 EATS

Assuming the movie doesn't start too early, we will meet at XYZ for a quick bite to eat.  It is probably best to park at the theater and walk the less than 5 minutes over to the tavern (across Detroit).

Tips for improving your restaurant experience:

  • Print a map or enter the address in your GPS ahead of time.
  • Bring CASH to pay for your meal.
  • When you arrive, ask to sit at the "Movie Group" table.

7:20 MOVIE

Meet near the entrance door to the theater 5 minutes ahead of time or look for the group inside the theater or meet us afterward by the door.


We will head back to XYZ.


Kris is derailed from her life when she is drugged by a small-time thief. But something bigger is going on. She is unknowingly drawn into the life cycle of a presence that permeates the microscopic world, moving to nematodes, plant life, livestock, and back again. Along the way, she finds another being-a familiar, who is equally consumed by the larger force. The two search urgently for a place of safety within each other as they struggle to assemble the loose fragments of their wrecked lives.


"Upstream Color" is splendid, transcendent weirdness.


The $5.00 yearly fee (or $1.50 for one movie) goes toward charges incurred for using the MeetUp website. You can access PayPal (see link in left hand column) or pay your fee to the Organizer at the event.

If this is your first movie with the group, there is no fee to attend.

This group has been successful partly because members have a genuine interest in meeting fellow independent movie goers. We don't always know where to look for you, especially first timers.  Consider posting your picture and printing out the pictures of the attendees to help find everyone easier.

We have multiple meeting places:

  • Entrance door to the movie in the theater hallway 5-10 minutes before the movie starts
  • By the entrance door or ticket office after the movie
  • Reserved table at the restaurant under the name "Movie Group"

We don't always sit together in the movie theater but if you see a bunch of people talking about good movies they have seen, it is probably us. Please join in. We are always happy to get new people involved.

In the world of Independent films, it is recommended that you check back a few days before the event to make sure the movie, restaurant, location or time has not changed.

    I stayed. It was intense. Unsettling. Definitely an art film, can't say I understood it, except as a metaphor for something inside us. I would have appreciated a discussion with someone who is good at articulating (or speculating) deeper meanings. Seemed like something Cinematique(?-behind the inst of art?) would show.

      It wa s a new experience for me, too. They said it was too far into the run of the movie, and they wouldn't sell me a ticket.

      I thought it was that bad. BTW, saw Delicatessen (on your suggestion after we saw Hipsters) and really enjoyed it. I walked out of last night's movie bc it was too disturbing for me. The dudes at the consession laughed and told me that they wondered what peoples' reactions would be to the flick... guess they've seen it.

    I might come if I haven't seen it already. I called the Capitol yesterday and the manager said he wasn't sure if it was coming on the 10th or not. The website says yes, but the staff there said it was not in the computer yet so it's still up in the air.
