Cinema With the Secular and Discussion Lunch

NOTE*** To reserve your tickets, please go online to Fandango. The Regal Cinema website also has a link to Fandango which is now working properly again after problems.

This group will meet once per month or so and visit one of several movie theaters in Riverside and Redlands, alternating on either Sunday or Saturday for the first or second matinee, around 11 AM on the opening weekend of the movie. We’ll watch keeping in mind that our discussion afterward over lunch or coffee follows how the film relates to current thinking about and events concerning religion and politics.

How does the film reflect current events, attitudes, or aspirations?
• Throughout the movie, a statement is being made on the human condition. What statement do you think is being made and do you agree?
• Can we identify any political, social, or religious themes in these movies that influence the characters and affect the storyline?
• Can we see any Humanists in the film?
• Did the movie attempt to persuade its viewers to accept the particular values or principles that the writers presented? Was it or could it be successful?

At lunch, we’ll chat as we order for a few minutes, then discussions will begin. So the whole group can enjoy the whole discussion, please no side conversations during this discussion time. Please do stay later and continue visiting, though after this short discussion period.
