If you enjoy going to the movies and love an opportunity to discuss the movie with other movie enthusiasts, then you should consider joining Critics’ Corner. We meet at a member’s house. After socializing over appetizers and some drinks, we then discuss and rate the two movies, which we will have already seen on our own. Each attendee pays $5 to cover the cost of the drinks and brings either an appetizer or dessert., we will be discussing the following movies. See them on your own and be ready to discuss.
