Fellow Film Club Members & Movie Buffs:
Hey, our two screenings have been held, and this Wednesday, October 17, 2012, the Tacoma Film Club will host the “Discussion Evening” for the three films we watched this month.
The Club’s theme for this month has to do with “The nature of man, how some lead instinctively, while most others have a fervent need to be led–even if it is by corrupt ludicrous politicians, the media, or a cult.”
MR SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON (1939)
Directed by Frank Capra @ 129 minutes.
The film stars James Stewart, Jean Arthur, Claude Rains, Edward Arnold, Thomas Mitchell, Guy Kibbee, Eugene Pallette, Beulah Bondhi, H.B. Warner, and Harry Carey.
The Discussion will be led by TFC member/Producer Michael Kagen.
MEET JOHN DOE (1941)
Directed by Frank Capra @ 122 minutes.
The film stars Gary Cooper, Barbara Stanwyck, Edward Arnold, Walter Brennan, Spring Byington, James Gleason, and Gene Lockhart.
The Discussion will be led by TFC member/Producer Ron Boothe
THE MASTER (2012)

So folks, mark your personal calendars, brave the weather and join us this Wednesday, October 17, 2012 at 924 Broadway, in the Pythian Temple, at street level. The door will open at 6:15 p.m., and the discussions will begin at 7 p.m. You are, of course, welcome to bring snacks and beverages, including wine, to share with others. See you at the Discussion!
