I don't have any theme in mind, it could really be any genre so long as it's a movie. Would you prefer a monthly theme?

well I was thinking like the big holiday months. oct. would be of course horror genre or say christmas could just be christmas themed like gremlins, die hard, christmas vacation, ect. so if this is april/spring it could be comedy "fools" or spring themed. just a suggestion.

Well we've already missed the boat on the comedy theme, but a horror/christmas theme is a great idea. I might do a showing of independence day for the week of the 4th of July as well. Thanks for the great idea!

Themes are good. It provides structure.

They don't have to be followed, but at least it's a starting point.

Themes don't have to be genres either. ie. "Fear and Hope", "Existential Angst", "Unrequited Love", "Water", or "Freedom" could be themes.

You could start a wiki for this sub. Post the date, time, movie, (and theme) in one list, maybe list the contenders for folks to catch if they like, and in another section invite people to add their theme suggestions. Every week we would vote on the movie of that week and the theme of the next week. If you and folks like.

It gets much hate but it's a super fun movie. One of the most hated Shamylan films.
