Twice a month, Reason Center (RC) and AOF get together to host a Free Movie Night under an excellent MPLC License (basically, a show-movies-for-free license). Alas, the License prohibits us from announcing the movie title. But we can hint.
In this case it's a 2009 fantasy-comedy starring Ricky Gervais, about an alternate earth where nobody lies, nobody even knows how to lie -- until a man discovers lying by accident. Significantly, this alternate world has no religion whatsoever, but he soon finds that the idea of an invisible man-in-the-sky is a convenient way to package his prevarications. It catches on. And things in this world soon change, significantly.
Can't guess the movie? Then please contact Reason Center (see below). They'll tell you, then you can tell anyone.
The Movie Night is an informal, picnic-style family event. The venue has a huge silver screen and a dynamic sound system. Chairs are available but may be a bit uncozy for a two-hour sit, so it's OK to bring blankets, pillows, lawn chairs and your own snacks & beverage, non-alcoholic please. RC may provide fluffy, buttery theater popcorn. Children are welcome if they're cool children -- and if you judge the movie appropriate for tender eyes & ears. Also, the taller your personal chair, the further back you will sit -- keep that in mind.
The movie showings are especially for Reason Center members, but non-members are welcome too. RC may beg a small donation to cover costs. How can you become a Reason Center member? Sign up at http://reasoncenter.com/donate/. Membership is a measly $4 a month, is tax deductible if you itemize, and the perks (like this one) are well worth it. No lie! Would we lie?
