Reel to Real: Conversations that bring movies to life!

Just like your favorite book club, REEL to REAL provides a forum for thoughtful discussion of films in a casual, comfortable environment.

The Denis Theatre Reel to Real Conversations appeal to a wide group of film lovers while recognizing that time schedules vary.  We will include several film genres as well as various viewing and discussion formats.  Options might include seeing films together followed by dinner discussion, seeing films separately but joining for discussion on a specific date, renting films to view separately or together in someone's home and eventually in a Denis Theatre screening room.

*NOTE: Registration is required, as seating is limited to 25To register, or for more information, contact the Denis Theatre Foundation at
