Come for the entertainment, the discussion, and the fellowship. Don't forget to RSVP with for the $10 lunch by the preceding Tuesday.

January 3
Broadway Musicals: Beauty and the Beast is the 10th longest running show of all time. This is the Disney LIVE version of the musical, NOT THE ANIMATED VERSION. It is one of the most beautiful adaptations of the story ever filmed...stunning!

January 10
Television: The King of Comedy is one of Martin Scorcese's most highly regarded movies. It showcases superb performances by Robert De Niro and Jerry Lewis.

January 17
Local Live Theater: Waiting for Guffman, with the same zany cast of the comedy favorite Best in Show, is the story of a small Missouri town deciding to celebrate the town's 150th Anniversary with a home grown original musical. It is a comedy gem and one of Jim's all time favorites!

January 24
Music Industry: Muscle Shoals is a fascinating look into one of the country's most revered locations for musicians to record and the gifted studio musicians known as The Stompers who made it all happen.

January 31
Computer-Generated Imagery: Paddington showcases the latest in digital technology. Critics labeled this family favorite 'a total delight' and a creative triumph. The story follows a young bear to London in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone at Paddington Station, he meets the Brown family, who offer him temporary haven.
