Movies with a Message

Movies with a Message – Second Friday Cinema –  September 2019


The family you come from isn’t as important as the family you’re going to have. – Ring Lardner, American humorist (1885-1933)


I can imagine that every family has its times of trial and celebration.  There are many good stories written to relate how some families are able to heal their fractures to find renewed hope.  It is our pleasure this September to present two of them.

7:00 p.m. – A Bicycle Lesson – An opportunity to rebuild a broken relationship opens when a young woman teaches her mother to ride a bicycle.

7:20 p.m. – The Storyteller – A young girl appears from nowhere and seems to have an amazing effect on everyone she meets.  But this young girl has a story of her own.

8:50 – 9:15 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, September 13th, at 7:00 p.m. in the 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.
