Volunteer to Lead Film Discussions

Free and open to the public, our Post-Film Discussions are generally scheduled every weekend and focus on new film openings. Many of the films that come to The Grand Cinema are of a wide variety of topics and interest, and we love to pair discussion leaders with just the right movie.
If you love movies and are interested in facilitating a discussion or two, please email Rachel Marecle at with a brief background about your experience with film.
