Are you interested in viewing eclectic and lesser-known films? Join us!

We are partnering with Oddball Cinema. Oddball Cinema presents movies that you won’t find at your local multiplex:  obscure, unusual, and independent features as well as occasional classics. The host will introduce the movie with a focus on what makes it “oddball.”  After the film, there will be time to discuss the film.

About the film: Conor, a 12-year-old boy, struggles with bullying at school and his mother’s illness at home. The stress leads to nightmares, and then one day a nightmare arrives while he’s awake in the form of an enormous monster. It visits him repeatedly to tell him fantastic stories, and it warns him that the time is coming when Conor will have to tell the monster a story. He fears telling the story more than he fears the monster.
