Popcorn Theology – CANCELED
July 18, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
UPDATE: Due to technical difficulties, Popcorn Theology has been canceled for the month of July and will return in August.
Popcorn Theology is finally back! With the new guidelines sent out by Bishop Wright, we will return to the St. Mark’s Parish Hall. This means we can have pizza, wine, BYO beer, and popcorn! Oh, and we will be able to have super insightful conversations about our movie as well!
(Note that all in attendance must be fully vaccinated. If there is anyone who wants to attend but has not been vaccinated, please contact Jane Brubaker.)
Are you a movie buff or cinema junkie?
Does your mouth water at the smell of fresh popcorn?
Do you love sharing an evening at the movies with your friends?
If the answer is “yes” to any of the above, then St. Mark’s Popcorn Theology is a group you need to join!
We meet on the 3rd Sunday of each month at 5 PM for pizza, a movie, and some fellowship and discussion. Please bring $5.00 to offset the cost of food and drink. If you have any questions or concerns, contact Jane Brubaker (706-884-2838, firstname.lastname@example.org)
This Month’s Movie: Nomadland
Following the closure of a gypsum mine in the rural Nevada town she calls home, Fern (Frances McDormand) packs her van and sets off on the road. Exploring life outside conventional society as a modern-day nomad, Fern soon discovers a resilience and resourcefulness that present her with experiences unlike any she’s known before. Along the way in this story of hope, she meets other nomads who become mentors in her life amidst the vast, sometimes breathtaking landscape of the American West. From Searchlight Pictures and acclaimed director Chloe Zhao, NOMADLAND features real-life nomads Linda May, Swankie and Bob Wells. With care and insight, Zhao crafted the screenplay, based on Jessica Bruder’s book “Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century.” McDormand brings Fern to life with a powerful, authentic performance. Also starring David Strathairn in a gripping turn as a man Fern befriends, NOMADLAND is a fascinating celebration of humanity, independence and adventure.
