May Movie Night

Pluralism is our theme for May and as Walt Whitman famously said, “I am large, I contain multitudes!” But we rarely – if ever – step back to reflect on how those multitudes influence us and interact with each other. Our movie Hail Ceaser is a Coen brothers film   that looks at some of these interactions by spoofing the film industry, religion and American institutions generally.

Deceptively lighthearted, Hail, Caesar! balances some heavy themes,  Foremost, the Coens consider four distinct institutions onto which we cling and fill our lives with meaning: American culture’s reliance on escapist entertainment; defining oneself through their occupation of choice; religion as a way of shaping, if not commandeering one’s life; and our full devotion to any number of political philosophies, here represented by Marxism. 

Come join us Saturday May 11 at 4 pm for an all star comedy set in the latter years of Hollywood’s golden age. Great company, excellent popcorn and your choice of seats.
