$5 Monday Meetup @ Living Room Theaters! THE WOLFPACK (7:15pm)

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

THE WOLFPACK

Locked away from society in an apartment on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, the Angulo brothers learn about the outside world through the films that they watch. Nicknamed ‘The Wolfpack,’ the brothers spend their childhood re-enacting their favorite films using elaborate homemade props and costumes. With no friends and living on welfare, they feed their curiosity, creativity, and imagination with film, which allows them to escape from their feelings of isolation and loneliness. Everything changes when one of the brothers escapes, and the power dynamics in the house are transformed. The Wolfpack must learn how to integrate into society without disbanding the brotherhood.

This is a nosy movie, but it is altogether fascinating.”

Jordan Hoffman – THE GUARDIAN

“Documentary has a tradition of trafficking in the misery of other people’s lives, so it’s a relief that 

The Wolfpack

 doesn’t drag you down or offer packaged uplift, but instead tells a strange tale with heart and generosity.”

Manohla Dargis – THE NEW YORK TIMES

“Despite the mixture of vérité footage and home movies showing the Angulos in their apartment, 

The Wolfpack

 feels more in line with a form of ethnographic storytelling than anything else, because the story is told exclusively in terms of their relationship to it.”

Eric Kohn – INDIEWIRE

“So weirdly fascinating is the tale of the Angulo clan that one wishes 

The Wolfpack

 were that much sharper, more searching and coherently organized. Still, there is much to enjoy in director Crystal Moselle’s debut documentary feature.”

Scott Foundas – VARIETY
