• What we’ll do 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 Tuesday evenings to take advantage of their $6 Merry 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
In her own words, comedienne Gilda Radner looks back and reflects on her life and career. Weaving together recently discovered audiotapes, interviews with her friends, rare home movies and diaries read by modern day comediennes (including Amy Poehler), LOVE GILDA offers a unique window into the honest and whimsical world of a beloved performer whose greatest role was sharing her story.
