This free monthly event held on the third Friday is geared towards exploring the meaning of life through the shared experience of movies.  After each movie, a 5-minute intermission is followed by a group discussion.  Whether you’re a lover of cinema or a lover of thoughtful conversation, our goal is to foster genuine dialogue among groups of people with diverse perspectives. We want to hear from each other about what connects us to the stories we experience together, what challenges us, what thrills us, what makes us laugh, what breaks our hearts.
