[UPDATE: Advance Tickets Now Available! See below] Alfonso Cuarón has already made several amazing movies, from "Y Tu Mama Tambien" to the groundbreaking 3-D movie "Gravity". But his latest movie "Roma" may be his 'masterpiece', not just in its greatness but because in many ways it brings together themes and interests from across his movie career! Based upon Cuarón's real-life experiences growing up in Mexico City, the movie focuses on a young maid named Cleo as she helps take care of a large family in the early 1970's. The film is remarkable in how it shows so many parts of Cleo's life journey, from the little pleasures to dramatic personal decisions, moments of poetry in the smallest details to the epic sweep of historical events, all presented with incredible density not just by the black and white imagery, but a complex sound design that creates a vibrant world for Cleo all by itself! After the film, we'll head to a nearby restaurant location (most likely Renaldi's at 2827 N Broadway), since there will be plenty to talk about when it comes to Cuarón's personal yet epic look at his history. Tickets are $12.50 and we HIGHLY recommend you get them for this film in advance, which you can from this link:

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...
