Cerebral Cinema - My Darling Clementine
Die hard cinephiles,
academic film enthusiasts, and casual movie goers looking to expand
their movie going experience welcome. Cerebral Cinema is a group geared
towards getting together to watch a variety of a eclectic cinema ranging
from highbrow indie fare to genre blockbusters. Following each
theatrical outing, our group will congregate to discuss the film over
food or drinks in a casual laid-back environment. Discussion topics will
center around the film's plot and themes, the past filmography of the
cast and crew, and the film at hand's cultural relevance.

Fonda, Victor Mature and Cathy Downs respectively) in this genre
We shall meet at about 9:10 to purchase tickets and get acquainted prior to a 9:30 screening. Drinks and discussion may follow across the street at Houston Hall. Be there or be quadrilateral.
