The Cinema Lounge
The Cinema Lounge, a film discussion group, takes place at 7:00 PM at Teaism in Penn Quarter, 400 8th St., NW in Washington, DC (closest Metro stop is Archives, also near Metro Center and Gallery Place). NOTE: We will meet in the downstairs area. You do not need to be a member of the Washington DC Film Society to attend.
The Cinema Lounge meets Monday, February 20, 2017 at 7:00pm. Our topic is "Romantic Comedies." In honor of Valentine's Day, we'll examine the romantic comedy. From Lubitsch to Allen to Ephron to Apatow, romantic comedies have long been a Hollywood staple. Why have they remained popular? How have they changed through the years? What do we look for in these films, and what are some clichés we could do without?
