What we're about

This is a group for people who love cinema and love talking about it...

Don't be intimidated about your level of trivia knowledge as a movie geek and don't be bashful about your favorite genre choices. We'll take an eclectic approach to the aesthetics of cinema.

Meetups can either be held to see a movie and discuss it afterwards, discuss movies without screening one, or attending one and discussing it at a later date in a separate Meetup...

TÁR

Needs a location

Director Todd Field has already made two quality films in his short career ("In the Bedroom" and "Little Children"), but he looks to be taking his filmmaking to another level with "TÁR", which is already getting rapt attention at the film festival circuit. Its star Cate Blanchett is getting raves as a renowned music conductor embroiled in a personal controversy, and the trailer shows some stunning imagery in how the film is depicting the mind, heart, and will of a Promethean figure in her field:

After the movie we'll head to Beck's at 2201 N Clybourn to talk of the movie's qualities, how this fits with Fields' other films, and if this is another feather in Blanchett's cap of amazing performances. Tickets are $13 and can be purchased in advance at the following link:

Film Discussion Lunch: Stephen King Movie Adaptations

Needs a location

Many authors have seen successful films adapted from their works, but only one has his very own sub-genre. Stephen King’s influence is so vast that just about all his works have a film or television adaptations (with varying levels of success). One cannot imagine the modern horror genre without such staples as Carrie, The Shining and Misery. It’s hard to find a major horror director who hasn’t taken on King and that pattern continues to this day with recent releases like It and Doctor Sleep. This Halloween, we’ll talk all things Stephen King! (Note, the list below is only some suggested viewings. We'll be happy to cover any of your favorite King flicks.)

Stephen King Adaptations

  • Carrie
  • The Shining
  • Creepshow
  • The Dead Zone
  • Christine
  • Stand by Me
