192 East 8th Street, Brooklyn, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
This week's film: Jean Renoir's FRENCH CANCAN ("a Technicolor tour de force by a master of modern cinema"). Trailer. Charles Silver, curator of film at MoMA: "If someone asked me to recommend two or three essential or seminal Chaplin or Ford films, I would be less hesitant than I would be with Renoir, whose thoughts and feelings seem universal, and whose films seem to encompass virtually all that is Cinema—and life itself."
Potluck portion (if you're interested) starts at 6 - we'll be serving some kind of (vegan) group dish - if folks can bring either a vegan food item or beverage (beer is always a good pick), that's appreciated, but what's most important is to bring yourself. Movie starts at 7 on the dot.

Also: PLEASE RSVP, even if it's just to say maybe. This is being held in our living room, which is not infinitely large, so we need to know how many people are coming, and whether we should expect you.

On deck for April 7: Akira Kurosawa's Dodes'ka-den.

Do you know what dish you'll be serving so I can compliment it properly? "you are a nice dish, wonderful flavor"

And now I'm running super late, but start without me.
