If I was in town, I’d be there. Looks like a great time.

Absolutely. If all things go as planned, this will be a monthly event at the SW branch of the SPL. Once the film for December is determined – and for future months for that matter, we’ll post it on this site. Hope to see you on the 28th.

Absolutely! We would love to have you join us in December and beyond! We had a great discussion today after Slumdog Millionaire. Looking forward to meeting you in person. Yes, stay tuned… and please spread the word!

An extraordinary group of individuals made the watching of Slumdog a truly meaningful experience. The camaraderie, warm and thought provoking discussion – all spectacular. Venue amazing, snacks and lunch wow, wow, wow – thrilled and delighted to spend my morning with a group of very hip, very sharp, very smart people. Looking forward to the next one!

I was a pretty big fan of the group as well. This was the second time watching the movie for me. I was amazed that, as much as I learned from watching it the second time, I got a lot more from the insight and experiences of the pretty eclectic group of people.

Who’d’a thunk that movie elements and themes discussed through different cultural and social lenses could flesh out common inclinations and a sense that, for all of the molds we try to stuff ourselves into, there is a lot more that is common among us than we realize sometimes? It’s fascinating to me.
