Dinner and a Movie Event this Sunday - "The Butler" and Discussion: Racism in America

The Butler

We'll be attending a screening of "The Butler," the story of a White House butler who served seven presidents from Dwight Eisenhower to Ronald Reagan. The all-star cast is led by Forest Whitaker in the title role, along with Oprah Winfrey, Robin Williams, Cuba Gooding Jr., John Cusack, Lenny Kravitz, Jane Fonda, Terrence Howard, and many more.

The film will be showing at the Colorado Center in HD2 (Colorado Blvd.... and I-25), and we'll have dinner and discussion across the street at the Perkins restaurant after the movie, so please plan to attend with us for what promises to be an enjoyable evening and a spirited discussion.

The suggested donation is $20 (includes the movie and appetizers), and HD2 "cine-scholarships" are available for anyone who would like to attend.
