Morning has worked well over the last few years, but it could change should it
be seen as a problem for getting people together. Mornings do have some key
advantages. We don’t usually have people who want to see movies at RRSq coming
in while we are meeting in the morning. That would start happening around 2:00
or so as the weekday matinees get going. If we wanted to have a group screening
we could easily incorporate that into our meeting time if we meet in the
morning. It could be problematic to screen films in the afternoon since we
would need to work around the regular film schedule and the arrival of those
audiences. We have, of course, used weekend mornings for group screenings in
the past. That is still possible, but it would mean another trip to RRSq and we
would need to take into account that RRSq’s business day and the arrival of
filmgoers would start around noon. We would have to be done before that time
whereas we could more easily meet and see a film in conjunction with a meeting
allowing our time there to possibly extend beyond noontime if we meet on a

Sorry we can't come to the meeting this week. Going forward, will all the
meetings be in the morning?

OK, I think everyone who is on our list who has indicated that they would like

a quorum for a meeting though it appears likely that we won’t see the Graves

squared away). I would like to get started. I hope that nothing has changed
since yesterday so that Wednesday at 10:00 is still a good time to meet for
most of us. Mike, you are welcome to join us if you are free.
Meeting: Wednesday, September 26th at 10:00 am at Railroad Square Cinema.
Looking forward to seeing you. I’ll be working on getting an agenda and some
online resources together. There may be additional e-mail(s) from me between
now and Wednesday.

I hope everyone is well and has had a great summer. It is now officially fall
and you know what that means.
Sorry about not sending anything out earlier in the month. I decided to wait
until I got back from Toronto then my computer decided it didn’t want to work.
Now fixed I am back in business. I was hoping to get a first meeting going
either this week or next. I seem to recall that we met last year on Wednesday
mornings. I think Alan indicated that Mondays were not good days for him as
that is when they get organized for the next week. Weekday morning meetings
would also allow us to use the same time for a group screening should that be
needed and certainly we have needed to do that over the last several years. So
what day works best for you? If no mornings work for you, are there early
afternoons that would work?
Alan, are there any other events or meetings scheduled this week or next at the
Square around which we would need to work?
Below is a message from Bob drawing attention to a link to watch a short film.
Originally, I had forwarded e-mails about films from Film Movement. They still
seem to send out screeners. You may want to retrieve that if you still have it.
I could resend it if you no longer have it.
Looking forward to getting together.

Hello to all and thank you Joel for the film links/suggestions. Looking forward
to selecting films for our 2019 season.
I want to share a link to a short animated (stop action) film. This came to me
through a friend in England who speaks the "Her" voice of the story titled Him
And Her. The link is this.... https://vimeo.com/244266676 .
Some backstory and caveats to watching this film are that this is a student
film that has been submitted for awards consideration and so any distribution
for general public viewing could tend to disqualify this work for award and
future distribution considerations. So in other words if this ended up on
youtube somehow, it would be bad.
It's a sweet film and really hope you enjoy it. Password is treehouse. :)
