Introducing a joint venture with Generations of Indian Valley and the Indian Valley Public Library: Meaty Movie Club. If you’ve ever watched a movie that really stuck with you; if you’ve ever walked out of the theater feasting on food for thought; or if you just enjoy watching and discussing movies with substance, the Meaty Movie Club is for you!
Our series will feature movie titles that all have one thing in common: they’re discussable. You’ll have the opportunity to watch the movie on your own, or you can visit the Indian Valley Public Library for a public viewing on the date listed (generally the fourth Wednesday of the month at 10:00am). Then we’ll gather at Generations to pick our meaty movie apart, digesting its content together (this meeting will typically take place a week following the Library movie viewing).
Film genres will range from drama to action to comedy, and you can choose which flicks you’d like to pick apart with us. Our movie conversations will be led by thoughtful volunteer Bill Hyndman who will come prepared with questions and comments to fuel your appetite for discussion. And the Academy Award goes to. . . a meaty movie that we want to pick apart with you!
