WHAT: DON'T WORRY, HE WON'T GET FAR ON FOOT (R) The last day Portland slacker John Callahan (Joaquin Phoenix) is able to walk, he wakes up without a hangover—because he’s still drunk from the night before. That night at a wild party he meets a wisecracking drinking buddy (Jack Black), who insists they leave for an even better party he knows about. But when his new friend dozes off at the wheel, John wakes up confined to a wheelchair with only partial use of his arms. Though he initially has no intention of getting sober, he reluctantly attends a 12-step meeting run by a charismatic and dedicated sponsor named Donnie (Jonah Hill) and reconnects with Annu (Rooney Mara), a therapist he met at the hospital. With their encouragement, John finds that love is not beyond his reach and discovers a hidden talent for drawing, channeling his playful personality into crude, politically incorrect—and often hilarious—cartoons, which develop a national following. Based on a true story, this poignant, insightful, funny drama about redemption, forgiveness and the healing power of art is adapted from Callahan’s autobiography and directed by two-time Oscar nominee Gus Van Sant (Milk, Good Will Hunting) Please be on time 6:15 PM to relax and converse with your fellow movie-going friends and to make sure you have enough time to get your voucher from me first to exchange for your ticket at the box office. to relax and converse with your fellow movie-going friends and to make sure you have enough time to get your voucher from me first to exchange for your ticket at the box office.

What we're about

We are here to enjoy a variety of Art House, Independent and Foreign Language films that usually have smaller budgets and limited release dates. If you tire of the usual multi-million dollar Hollywood blockbuster and seek movies with a little more risk and substance? This meetup group is up your aisle.

Landmark Theatres (Hillcrest Cinemas, La Jolla Village and the Ken Cinema), Reading Gaslamp and Digital Gym are the main destinations for the events. We will mix in other locations as well including various film festivals throughout the year.
