BOMBSHELL: THE HEDY LAMARR STORY and Dinner @ Crest Cafe
"A refugee from Nazi-occupied Austria became the world's most beautiful female movie star. She was also the unheralded inventor of the technology that led to secure Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. She was not given the credit she deserved--until now. (US, 2017, 90 minutes, English)" As one in a series of movies being presented by the Sacramento Jewish Film Festival, Producer/Director Alexandra Dean will introduce the film and also lead a post-film discussion.

    What we're about

    Public Group

    Welcome. We tend to specialize in indie, foreign, and documentary films - you know, the kind of movie you want to discuss afterwards! Naturally, a lot of these films are at the Tower Theatre at 16th and Broadway. (We do meet at other theatres once in a while, too!) Come and meet us in the lobby before the show, sit through the end credits, and then meet in the lobby afterwards for discussion. We're a diverse group with lots of different viewpoints... and our discussions tend to be very interesting!
