FILM CLUB OCTOBER 2012 DISCUSSION EVENING

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.”
