I was about to post an article about a new movie club that was starting up at the Oriental Theatre in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and following the link to the club's web site showed that it covered eight cities in total:
- Atlanta, Georgia
- Boca Raton, Florida
- Boston, Massachussetts
- Milwaukee, Wisconsin
- New Haven, Connecticut
- San Francisco, California
- St. Louis, Missouri
- Washington, D.C.
The Milwaukee branch of the Key Sunday Cinema Club has announced its fall schedule which begins on September 14th. The sessions will be moderated by Patrice Petro and Gilberto Blasini, both faculty members at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee. Petro is Professor of Cinema & Media Studies, and English, and Blasini is an Associate Professor of Cinema & Media Studies, and English, as well as Director of the Cinema and Media Studies Program.
Membership for the Milwaukee branch is $85 for new members and $95 for returning members, which admits you to all 7 screenings and post-screening discussions. Rates vary bycity, so check out the web site for details.
Movie clubs like this can be a great way to better appreciate movies, because hearing comments from someone who is familiar with the style and/or content of the movie can help one obtain a better understanding of what the filmmaker was intending. I've watched some movies that definitely could have used some explanation, just so I could figure out why people in some circles are raving about a movie that I found nearly incomprehensible! In a few rare cases, the commentaries included on DVDs, HD DVDs, and Blu-ray discs have helped in this regard.
