Member Picks: Holiday (1938) Wednesday, Nov. 14th @ 7pm
Member Picks showcases the movies that inspired the Moxie’s biggest supporters.
Every month, one member picks a film that impacted their lives and we put it up on the big screen.
November’s pick was made by moxie member Mark McQueary.
What do you love about this particular film, and why do you want to share it with others?
“Hepburn and Grant, need I say more. They are one of my all-time favorite pairings, and this was their 3rd out of 4 movies together. “Holiday” was directed by George Cukor and is based on a play be Philip Barry. This same foursome came together again to make “The Philadelphia Story” a few years later. So many stylistic elements can be seen in “Holiday” that later appear in “The Philadelphia Story.” You can expect crisp direction, witty dialogue, and superior acting. Let’s not forget the wonderful supporting cast. Edward Everett Horton and Jean Dixon, as Prof. Nick Potter and his wife, are pure delight.”

Staff Picks: Ghost World (2001)
Nov 23rd & 24th @ TBD
November’s picks was made by Ellen Neville - Verdugo
Every month a member of the Moxie staff picks a film that impacted their lives and we put it up on the big screen.
“I first found this film after I read Daniel Clowes’ graphic novel Ghost World as a teenager. I was slowly accepting my outsider, art-kid destiny, and Daniel Clowes’ books introduced me to what would become my favorite book genre. I love Enid’s (Thora Birch) sarcastic sense of humor, her sense of style, and the strange people she attracts. I wanted to share it because it’s a coming of age film about a very specific type of nonconforming teenager. Also the music is great!”
