$5 Monday Meetup @ Living Room Theaters! TIME OUT OF MIND (6:30pm)

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

TIME OUT OF MIND

Oren Moverman’s drama Time out of Mind stars Richard Gere as George, a homeless, mentally-ill man who has been unable to hold a job for years. He drifts through the city looking for food, alcohol, and shelter. He also tries to make contact with his estranged daughter (Jena Malone). Eventually George takes advantage of some of the social services provided by the city of New York, but he lacks the proper paperwork to get the financial assistance he needs. He befriends a fellow homeless man (Ben Vereen) who claims to have been a successful jazz musician.

Rex Reed – NEW YORK OBSERVER

“It certainly is possible that Gere’s memorable performance as George – one that is far more physical than verbal, and that pushes the star’s legendary charm in unexpected directions – will put him in line for his first Oscar nod. George is never a cliché of homelessness, and neither the actor nor the film ever makes the expected or automatic choices.”

Andrew O’Hehir – SALON.COM

“Gere, who has shockingly never been nominated for an Oscar, gives the performance of his career, intuitive and indelible.”

Peter Travers – ROLLING STONE

“This movie’s best and truest quality may be its wandering, episodic rhythm, which is intriguing in its own right and reflects the experience of the main character.”

A.O. Scott – NEW YORK TIMES
