AOF Activities & Events
Twice a month, Reason Center (RC) and AOF treat you to a Free Movie under an excellent MPLC License (basically, a show-movies-for-free license). The License forbids naming the movie - sometimes we can hint, sometimes not - and plans change. But if you contact Reason Center (see below), they'll tell you, then you can tell anyone.
This one will be the 2014 story of San Francisco pop painter Margaret Keane, her phenomenal success in the 1950s, and the subsequent legal difficulties with her husband, who claimed credit for her art. A Tim Burton movie, so expect some dark humor. It received a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress.
How to attend: You'll need a personal Netflix account + a laptop or desktop computer with the Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge web browser. If you don't have these -- please be patient until we have a physical movie venue again. Else, do this to join us:
- Open your web browser right now and install the "Netflix TeleParty Extension." Get the extension at: https://www.netflixparty.com/. (Really, do it now, don't wait till movie night!)
- Just before the show, fire up the Chrome browser again and go to the very special Netflix Movie TeleParty link, which is ... https://redirect.teleparty.com/join/bcff1ccf96113e3a.
- Click that link. The Movie TeleParty page will open. Log into your Netflix account (if not logged in already). At the top right of the browser frame check your "Extensions" list. Find the letters Tp in red. You'll need to click on the red letters. (If you can't find the Tp, look for the little puzzle-piece icon in the upper right, click, then you'll see it.)
- The Netflix movie party should begin. You'll be watching it along with the rest of us. As it plays we can chat on the side of the screen and make silly, snarkey comments.
