Join us once a month for a Cinematic Conversation. Bart Weiss and a special guest host select the film and join the discussion each time.

“We’re stuck in our homes, many of us and we’re watching movies, But most of us don’t have an opportunity to have an intellectual conversation about films. This allows us to do that.”
