December 2 – Friday

6p    Movies That Matter: Sully (2016). You know the story; you saw the unbelievable news footage of the “Miracle on the Hudson.” In 2009 airline pilot Chesley Sullenberger safely landed an Airbus 320 on the Hudson River after both engines failed just after takeoff. Clint Eastwood directs Tom Hanks, Aaron Eckhart, Laura Linney, and Anna Gunn in this fact-based drama, which reveals how Sully pulled off the “miracle,” and considers the idea that it should never have been attempted. The flight scenes are exciting and exhilarating, the characters are engaging, and the story is fun to watch unfold. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and I think you will, also. Join us for an evening of pizza, picture, and a chance for thoughtful discussion. Pizza 6p, film 6:45p. Movies shown on 58" plasma TV. For pizza, let us know your preference, meat or veggie. (510) 451-3009, daniel/a/t/joyfulharmony.org. Hosted in Oakland by Daniel Neumayer and Gwendolyn Rothman, Harmony Center for the Joyful Spirit.

6:30p    First Friday in Danville. We’ll be at Luna Loca in Danville, a good Mexican restaurant in “The Livery” shopping center on San Ramon Valley Blvd. with good food, good prices, and good drinks. It’s pretty easy to get to: From I-680, take the Sycamore Valley Rd. exit, turn right on San Ramon Valley Blvd., and then take the first left (there’s a light) and Luna Loca will be on your right. Check their website at www.lunalocadanville.com for more information. I’ll make a reservation based on how many I think are coming, but please let me know if you’re thinking of attending so I can change the reservation.

16 – Friday

6p    Movies That Matter: Joy (2015). Jennifer Lawrence was Oscar nominated for her portrayal of Joy, based on the life of Joy Mangano. We follow Joy’s life over the years, which seems to parallel a soap opera which goes on and on for a couple of decades with the story seemingly caught in an endless loop. Joy, who was raised early in life to believe that anything is possible, but now as a divorced mom (with the ex living in her basement) has been ground down by her family and the ravages of day-to-day life. Joy is the story of her slow, sometimes, painful rebirth into the woman she was meant to be. The film, many times hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking, is finally inspiring. Lawrence and lots of great actors, including Robert De Niro, Cradle Cooper, Diane Ladd, Isabella Rossellini, and Elisabeth Rohm, and a warm hearted story that isn’t afraid to show the small tragedies of life, is the perfect feel-good movie for the holidays. Join us for an evening of pizza, picture, and a chance for thoughtful discussion. Pizza 6p, film 6:45p. Movies shown on 58" plasma TV. For pizza, let us know your preference, meat or veggie. (510) 451-3009, daniel/a/t/joyfulharmony.org. Hosted in Oakland by Daniel Neumayer and Gwendolyn Rothman, Harmony Center for the Joyful Spirit. Map and directions: joyfulharmony.org/wordpress/index.php/contact. PC, NS, NXM, LCR (RSE 1,3 F)

7p    Movie Night in Orinda. The Infiltrator (2016). Starring Bryan Cranston, Diane Kruger, John Leguizamo, Amy Ryan, Benjamin Bratt, and Yul Vazquez. Directed by Brad Furman. Cranston is Robert Mazur, a U.S. Customs Agent, who is on the verge of retirement. His “one last job” is as Musella in this very adult narco-crime thriller set in the mid-1980s. Mazur finds he likes living the high-life as Musella, and enjoys the power of being a trusted insider with the bigwigs. He collects evidence from members of the Drug Cartel, and from crooked bankers and their money laundering scheme involving Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar. Eventually arrests are made of 85 big-time criminals. Come about 7p and we’ll start the movie at 7:30p. Enjoy an evening with Mensa friends, other friends, or family members that you would like to invite. We’ll socialize both before the movie and during intermission. Please bring something to share. It is not a dinner, but salads are welcome, as are hors d’oeuvres, fruit, dessert, and light colored beverages (no chips).
