Sunday Night at the Movies

If you’re reading this, it shows you have an interest in excellent films, good food and great company - all of which St. Francis’ Sunday Night at the Movies provides!

 

This free monthly event is usually held on the second Sunday of each month - although dates can sometimes change as we share space with the St. Francis Theatre as well as other events.

We start off each Sunday Night at the Movies with a potluck dinner, which begins at 5:00 pm.

 

We ask that you bring a main dish, salad, or filling side dish to share. St. Francis will provide the drinks and desserts. While we hope everyone will bring something to share, no one will ever be turned away if they can’t.

 

 

Depending on the length of the movie, we will start the film between 5:30 and 5:45 pm. We usually conclude with a discussion of the film, and often times will have a panel to give us enlightening information on the subject of the film.

For 2020, we again have 12 wonderful movies selected by our attendees. So come join us for dinner and a movie!

I Am

(Documentary, 2010, 78 minutes, NR)

“I AM” is the story of a successful Hollywood director, Tom Shadyac( Liar, Liar, Nutty Professor), who experienced a life threatening head injury, and his ensuing journey to try and answer two very basic questions: What’s wrong with our world? and What can we do about it?

With a film crew of four, Tom visits some of todays great minds, including authors, poets, teachers, religious leaders, and scientists (Howard Zinn, Lynn McTaggart, Desmond Tutu, Thom Harmann, Coleman Barks) searching for the fundamental endemic problem that causes all of the other problems, while simultaneously reflecting on this own life choices of excess, greed and eventual healing.

Rebels on Pointe

(Documentary, 2017, 90 minutes, NR )

 

“Rebels on Pointe” is the first-ever, cinéma vérité documentary film celebrating Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo -- the all male, drag ballet company founded over 40 years ago on the heels of New York's Stonewall riots. The company has performed in over 500 cities and 33 countries, and has a cult following around the world. The film juxtaposes exclusive, behind-the-scenes access and intimate, character-driven stories of its dancers, highlighted by amazing performances shot around the world. Rebels on Pointe ultimately celebrates our shared humanity through universal themes of identity, dreams, family, love, loss, determination and resilience...proving that a ballerina is not merely a woman dancing, but an act of revolution in a tutu.
