Film Discussion Lunch -The Seventies

This Meetup is past

17 people went


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 brunches, we will be starting out with a designated topic decided at the previous lunch, whether a filmmaker, era, style or genre.

For our second decade in review meetup (we've already done the eighties), bust out your bellbottoms cause it’s the seventies. With our group, we may be tempted to guide any ‘70’s discussion toward “New Hollywood” ( ),
but the decade was also home to a great number of iconic cultural niches from
blaxplotation and kung fu movies to car chases and, of course, space operas. See you in March and have a nice day.
