Movies with a Message

Movies with a Message – Second Friday Cinema –  January 2020

Imagination is the only key to the future. Without it none exists – with it all things are possible.     

Ida M. Tarbell (1857 – 1944)

Welcome once again to the world of fantasy, to the world of imagination, to the world of cinema!


7:00 p.m. – Library of Love – Do you recall the song and dance numbers common in musicals of the 40’s and 50’s.  Relax and enjoy the energy and optimism in this brief tribute to the artistry of                     yester-year.

7:15 p.m. – A Christmas in New York – The setting is Christmas eve in an upscale hotel in Manhattan.  A number of individuals have gathered for some ill-defined occasion, and we watch as                           multiple story lines evolve simultaneously.  This is an ambitious film, not without its flaws.  But these very flaws should make for a spirited conversation.

8:45 – 9:10 p.m. – Time for wrap-up and discussion.


We believe that good experiences are even more fulfilling when shared with others. To this end, our objective each month is to present films of substance in a living room setting and to provide an opportunity to discuss with friends.  Please join us on Friday, January 10th, at 7:00 p.m. in the Cottage first floor Conference Room. As usual, all are welcome.  Pizza will be provided.  Popcorn optional! Contributions will be gratefully accepted, all of which will go to UUCD. (For more information on these films and on the service from which we make our selections, please check the website at
