Do you like talking movies? Do you like eating lunch? Why not combine the two as our gathering of film buffs leads to free flowing conversations on movies of any and every type. For our Film Discussion lunches, we will be starting out with a designated topic decided at the previous lunch, whether a filmmaker, era, style or genre.

From March 16 – May 26, The Music Box will be hosting a retrospective of films directed by Orson Welles. From the Citizen Kane, often voted the greatest movie of all time, to rare gems like Chimes at Midnight; most of the legendary director’s works will be screened (and we’ve got a number of Meetups scheduled to watch them.) In addition to discussing his artistry, we’ll also talk about Welles many battles with the studio system and the films and scenes we don’t get to see.
