Movies with a Message

Movies with a Message – Second Friday Cinema – April 2019

Growing up in the Episcopal Church and attending a Methodist Sunday school, somewhere along the way I was taught some sort of creed, part of which was, “I believe in all things visible and invisible, …”  Of course, I didn’t, but the creed did lead me to wonder, what is the true nature of reality.

7:00 p.m. – The Eleven O’Clock – Our short film for this month offers a humorous response to the reality question.  A respected psychiatrist arrives to treat a delusional patient, who believes  he  is actually the psychiatrist.

7:20 p.m. – My First Miracle – In our feature film this month, courage takes the form of a 16-year-old girl who suffers from a rare form of cancer and who just hopes to live a normal life.  Not much of a story here, right?  What mischief could she possibly get into?

9:10 – 9:30 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, April 12th, at 7:00 p.m. in the Conference Room.  All are welcome.  Pizza will be provided.  Popcorn optional!  Contributions will be gratefully accepted, all of which will go to UU Danbury.  (For more information on these films and on the service from which we make our selections, please check the website at
