Lore: Cinematheque / Constantino's Markets

I remember hearing about Lore on NPR and made a note to see it when it came to town.  Learn about the horrors of World War II from innocent children of Nazi families and their experiences as they learn of the Holocaust tragedies.

6:00 EATS

If the weather cooperates, you might want to park at the Cinematheque, walk down Bellflower to E. 115th Street,  Turn right and Constantino's is at Euclid, all in about 10 minutes.  They have daily specials.  The group will meet upstairs.

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.

7:25 MOVIE

Meet near the entrance door to the theater 10 minutes ahead of time or look for the group inside the theater or meet us afterward by the door.

AFTER MOVIE Event

Perhaps we will head over to the ABC Tavern, if it is not too crowded.

Caesar Must Die

DESCRIPTION

When their Nazi parents are arrested at the chaotic close of WWII, five German siblings set off on a difficult journey through a devastated landscape to their grandmother’s house in distant Hamburg. Stunned by Hitler’s defeat, and suddenly poor and hungry, the children no longer know whom to trust or what to believe. Cate (Somersault) Shortland’s second feature is a tense and lyrical coming-of-age story unlike any other, as well as one of the best-reviewed foreign films of the year.

REVIEW...

The Australian-German co-production takes an unconventional tale and turns it into a challenging, visually stunning and emotionally turbulent film experience.

NOTE TO FIRST TIME GOERS
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.

NOTE TO ALL
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.

Join or login to comment.

    Lore did not follow the Hollywood standards of boxing each character as either good or bad. The group spent a lot of time figuring out whether some of people's actions were justified based on their situation (e.g. stealing and even murder).
    The most curious thing was at the end after all that the children experienced, and their grandmother was disciplining the children on table manners.

    Excellent film--even if it was depressing. A really different perspective on WWII and the holocaust. Great discussion afterwards. Great time!

    This is the best, most honest film I have seen in a long time. The cinematography was superb. The acting--seeing the progressive changes taking place in each character--WOW. As disturbing as the subject was, I am so glad I saw this, as it brought out aspects I had never thought about before. It's always good to view something from a different point of view...
