I didn't get this out earlier so obviously you missed the first two films followed by good discussions. But you are welcome to come to any or all of the rest.
Note next Weds is Across the Universe an awesome story/love story set to Beatles music. It truly is a wonderful film. I plan to have a little of my Beatles memorabilia collection there to add to the evening.
The meeting house has a great projection system & big screen so this is great viewing, not just seeing it on a TV screen.
See you there!! Love & Peace, Miriam
