$5 Monday Meetup @ Living Room Theaters! The Wall

Grab a drink and let's go see a movie! Bring friends and some good conversation to discuss the film, its characters, the production and more. The Living Room Theater is the location of our weekly Monday meetup. Most movies they play are independent, foreign, artistic with an occasional blockbuster.

We meet Monday evenings to take advantage of their $5 Merry Monday Movie special. They have weekday showings of all their movies in the 7:00 hour, and those are the showings we're shooting for. If you see something coming up there that you'd like to recommend as our Living Room movie of the week, message me or post it on the board by Wednesday the previous week!

See you at the movies!

Martina Gedeck, star of the Academy Award®-winning film The Lives Of Others, brings a vivid intensity to this mysterious and riveting tale of survival set in a spectacularly beautiful Austrian mountain landscape. In a tour-de-force performance, Gedeck stars as an unnamed character who suddenly finds herself cut off from all human contact when an invisible, unyielding wall inexplicably surrounds the countryside where she is vacationing. Accompanied by her loyal dog Lynx, she becomes immersed in a world untouched by civilization and ruled by the laws of nature. As she grapples with her bizarre circumstances, she begins an inward journey of spiritual growth and transcendence. Based on Marlen Haushofer’s eponymous classic novel, The Wall is a gorgeous, mesmerizing adventure film that raises profound questions about humanity, solitude, and our relationship to the natural world.

Boyd van Hoeij - VARIETY

    Really great discussion, what a terrific group! Thanks for coming, all! My review is here: http://martinteller.wordpress.com/2013/06/17/die-wand-the-wall/ I guarantee there's at least two typos in it.

      Thank you for facilitating the discussion. I found it thought provoking and really the first time I've discussed film in any depth since college.

    Very provocative. Sorry I could stay for the discussion. I had very mixed reactions -- but the film certainly is sticking in my head....
    Glad this was the film selected.

    Sorry I missed the opportunity to actually "meet" you all outside of short introductions after the film, next time I will stick around for the full discussion. Fabulous and powerful film.

    Since Josh appears tobe away, I think we should decide on the movie ourselves. Any objection to THE WALL at 6:40?

      Thanks Martin. Was in Canada and now off to NY.

      What would you like
      Martin?

    • Martin T.

      Blancanieves will be gone by Monday, unfortunately. Given the options, I'm leaning towards The Wall. Could also deal with Now You See Me. Place Beyond the Pines is pretty long, and I'd pass if it was Hangover 3.
