Frost / Nixon: Cedar Lee / Lopez

Hello everyone

A welcome to quite a few new members:

Mary Ellen (who we hope will see a non-mainstream movies with us)
Reena (welcome to Cleveland)
Calvin (I have already had a few interesting conversations with him. I hope you can make the after discussion of Frost/Nixon since you already know a lot of the history about this)
When: January 15,[masked]:00 PM
Fee: $1.50 per event or $5 for 2009

As I said before, there are quite a few movies to select from, but I don't want to miss the small ones, so we may come back to some of the "good" Hollywood movies later on if one or more of them receives Oscar nominations. Note that we are scheduling Gran Torino later this month.

Speaking of small movies, don't forget our double feature this Friday at the Cinemateque. Where else can you see movies about Debt and Port-a-Potties in one evening? Please consider becoming a member there. Cleveland is (uniquely) blessed to have the Cinemateque and like all arts organizations, they are struggling. You will be helping independent films in Cleveland.

Speaking of big movies, my friend Terry Meehan, a local film critic, teaches an Adult Ed film class on the Oscars.

The four-week class which begins the week of January 26, 2009, and ends the week after the
Oscars. He will present the annual Terry Meehan Award for Oscar-Picking Excellence. (You may want to start practicing your Red Carpet poses.)

Note that there will be no class the week of February 16.

As in the past, we will share our thoughts on 2009's five Best Picture
nominees; discuss the other categories; consider what Oscar was like in
the early years; make our Oscar picks and turn them in; and hope that
this will be the year you finally make that trip to the podium.
