Movies

Not your average movies!

We keep it fresh with the newest releases, nominated films in awards season, new looks at old favorites, and imaginative pairings.

We also learn the "personality" of each group and tailor selections to their interests. Participants are encouraged to suggest films and we alternate our selections with their recommendations.

Below is a sampling of some of movies that have generated the most conversation.


  • Saving Mr. Banks
  • Spotlight
  • The Sixth Sense
  • Lars and the Real Girl 
  • Bernie 
  • The Descendants 
  • Bridge of Spies
  • The Informant!
  • Moneyball 
  • Up in the Air 
  • Mud 
  • Captain Philips (Oscar series) 
  • Blue Jasmine (Oscar series) 
  • Secondhand Lions 
  • Double Indemnity 
  • Gravity
  • Walk the Line
  • Gran Torino 
  • The Train
  • Stranger Than Fiction 
  • Best Exotic Marigold Hotel 
  • I Confess / Philomena (Then and Now Views of Religion) 
  • American Sniper / Sergeant York (Then and Now Patriots) 
  • My Cousin Vinny 
  • Gone Baby Gone 
  • Margin Call / Pursuit of Happyness (Two Views of Success)
Movies are carefully chosen for interesting discussion content. We want to leave participants' pondering what they watched for days afterward.

 This doesn't mean that we only view serious movies, though. Some people are surprised to find that funny films can be even better at covering deep content than a so-called "message movie."
