New Event: Hope and Glory: Lakeland Community College / Noosa Bistro

From: Jims
Sent on: Sunday, January 20, 2008 4:16 PM
Announcing a new event for Cleveland Independent Movie Goers!

Hello everyone.

First of all, let's welcome 3 new members: Sandi (who admits that she likes movies from her couch, but would probably miss our great discussions), Angela (a French movie person who I would imagine will be at Diving Bell in a few weeks), and fellow film fanatic Maryellen (who is bringing 3 people for her first event!).

Our next movie has us returning to Lakeland for their annual film festival. All of their movies are usually good, but I picked one that will probably suit us just fine.

Hope you can make it if I don't see you at CORN or DIVING BELL.

Jim

What: Hope and Glory: Lakeland Community College / Noosa Bistro

When: Friday, February 8, 6:00 PM

Movie admission: USD0.05 per person

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Event Description: Every year, Lakeland has its international film festival in January and February. This year, the theme seems to be about coping with war. Hope and Glory is a 1987 British film that won many awards.

Check the festival out for all their great films. http://www.lakelandcc.edu/academic/faculty/santosr/film_past.asp

LCC is easy to find, just south off I-90. http://lakelandcc.edu/geneinfo/#areaMap. It seems farther than it really is. It is approximately a 25 minute drive from downtown Cleveland.

6:00 EATS: Noosa Bistro is an upscale restaurant that should fit in our budget since the movie is free. Check it out at http://www.noosabistro.com. Ask to be seated with the Movie Group if you don't see us when you walk in. Cash is highly recommended. It is about a 10 minute drive to the college.

*** If you plan on joining us ahead of time, please tell us on your RSVP. We will reserve a spot for you at the group table. ***

7:40 MOVIE: Look for the H building ROOM H-101 It gets crowded so allow extra time. Take a copy of this map with you (look for building 17 behind the left side of the Clock). http://www.lakelandcc.edu/GENEINFO/campusmap.htm

Meet at the auditorium entrance door IN THE THEATER HALLWAY 5 minutes ahead of time or look for the group inside the theater or meet us afterwards outside the same door.

AFTER MOVIE DISCUSSION: We will head back to Noosa for some refreshments and plenty of good discussion.

DESCRIPTION: Based upon director John Boorman's experiences as a young boy during World War II, HOPE AND GLORY stars Sebastian Rice-Edwards as Bill Rowen. Seen mostly from the nine-year-old boy's perspective, the film is uniquely astute in exploring the exhilarating effect that the bombing of his London suburb and the war's general tumult has on a young boy, at least temporarily.

REVIEW: "The antics of the colorful characters and its fast-paced story line give Hope and Glory all the spontaneity of a child at play." http://www.spiritualityandpractice.com/films/films.php?id=2831

NOTE TO FIRST TIME GOERS: 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, which is why I offer multiple meeting points:

* Entrance door to the movie in the theater hallway 5-10 minutes ahead of time
* Under or by the Marquee right after the movie
* A reserved table at a restaurant (usually) under the name "Movie Group"

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.
