What We’re Viewing: Monthly Film Discussion

Our monthly film discussion meets the third Tuesday of each month from September through June.  Starting at 3:00 pm we gather at a member’s home to share appetizers and a glass of wine or cold beverage before we begin our discussion.   After a lively moderator-led debate, the group assigns a letter grade (A,B,C,D, or F) to the movie.  Please view the movie on your own prior in a theater, on DVD,  Netflex, or Amazon Prime  in advance of the meeting.   Newcomers always welcome.

For additional information, please contact Karin Webb at 503-738-9833 or robertandkarin@mac.com.
