Location visible to members
Welcome to our group. We see movies at the Little Theatre on East Ave. in Rochester on the first Saturday of the month. We meet at 6:00 - 6:15 near the cafe behind the ticket booth for cinemas 2-5. I usually send out suggested movies from among the 6:30 to 7ish showings. This allows us to get out of the theater at about the same time for talk. Pair up with people for a movie or join the general group. We agree to meet afterwards at a near by restaurant, for conversation about the movie, life, or toward wherever the conversation leads.
Join us to meet new people, see an interesting movie, and have a nice night out with good conversation, connection and companionship. All are welcome.

See you at the movies.
Movie recommendations below
Good choices this weekend. Meet at the Little Theater between the cafe and the ticket booth for theaters 2-5. Look for the group and ask "Is this the movie group?" We hang about, trying not to block the traffic, and decide what we want to see. We don't all see the same movie, but we do see the first showings after 6pm, so we can all meet after. If there are more than 10 people, ask for the group discount, save a dollar.
There is "American Hustle" (Rated R, 138 min., in Theater 5 at 6:10pm) which looks to have some great music, action, and sizzle.
There is Emma Thomson and Tom Hanks in "Saving Mr. Banks" (Rated PG-13, 125 min., in Theater 4 at 6:20pm), the story of how Walt Disney wrangled to get the movie Mary Poppins made.
There is the Martin Scorsese film "The Wolf of Wall Street" (Rated R, 180 min., in Theater 3 at 6pm) starring Leo DiCaprio. A quote from the write up on the Little site says it all:
"Money. Power. Women. Drugs. Temptations were for the taking and the threat of authority was irrelevant. For Jordan and his wolf pack, modesty was quickly deemed overrated and more was never enough."
There is Judi Dench and Steve Coogan in"Philomena" (Rated PG, 98 min., in Theater 1 at 6:30pm) a story of one woman's search for her lost son when the Irish nuns took him away in the workhouse laundries of the 1960s.
Lastly we have "Nebraska"(Rated R, 115 min., in Theater 2 at 6:40pm) starring Bruce Dern and Will Forte in a road-trip movie of an old man going to claim lottery winnings, and the son learning about the father on the trip. In black & white.

After the movie, we will walk over to The Captain's Attic for food, drinks and discussion. Check out their menu below (.pdf download).
Hope to see you there.
