Let's talk about movies! Join us for a screening of The Disaster Artist (2017, R). After the movie our group will have a short discussion and select what we will watch next month. There will be popcorn and snacks!

The incredible true story of aspiring filmmaker and Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau (James Franco) as he and his best friend Greg (Dave Franco) defiantly pursue their dreams and embark on the hilarious odyssey of making the now-infamous cult classic "The Room".

Oscar nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay. Golden Globe winner for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy. Nominated for Best Male Lead at the Film Independent Spirit Awards.

 "Both The Room and The Disaster Artist prove exceptions to the old adage that you can't polish a turd: while Wiseau saw his 'disasterpiece' evolve beyond his imagining, Franco, for his part, has spun tragicomic gold from the most tragic of base materials." - Matthew Taylor, Sight & Sound
