What are Men's Movie Nights?
Throughout the year on Wednesday nights, a bunch of men get together at Immanuel to watch movies. Sound like fun? This is now our fourth year of doing this.
Here’s how Men’s Movie Nights work:
Each week we meet in Room 36 at 6:00 (the "movie room" with surround sound and a full-wall screen with HD projector!).
We take 2-3 weeks to watch a movie, depending on the length, as we watch about 50-55 minutes each week.
Once the movie is done, we spend one week talking about it, making some application to our lives, make some Biblical connections, and de-briefing on what we watched.
And that’s it. It’s a casual setting, no pressure, sit where you want, bring supper in with you if you want (or popcorn, if that’s what you need to watch a movie!), and just enjoy. It doesn’t get much better than getting together with a bunch of guys and watching some good “guy movies,” on a big screen with big sound!!
If you’re interested, just come. You don’t have to RSVP. You don’t have to be a member at Immanuel. This is open to any men who want to come. So feel free to bring a friend or co-worker with you, too.
I’ll be up front, we don’t watch anything beyond PG-13 but even with that there is violence, shooting, death, crashes, and occasional objectionable language. However, all the movies have some powerful themes that are worth talking about, especially for us as Christian men.
Over the past couple of years we’ve watched movies like "Ben Hur," "Deepwater Horizon," “The Martian,” “Woodlawn,” “Interstellar,” Jurassic World,” “McFarland USA,” “Skyfall,” “Gran Torino,” The Dark Knight series, “Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol,” “The Blind Side,” “Invictus,” “Iron Man 1, 2, and 3,” “Avatar,” “Glory Road,” “Unstoppable,” “42,” “Star Trek: Into Darkness,” “The Impossible,” “Captain Phillips,” “Gravity,” “World War Z,” “Noah,” “Edge of Tomorrow: Live. Die. Repeat,” “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” “Draft Day," "Captain America: Civil War," and "The Magnificent 7" (to name a few!...).
There’s more going on at Immanuel on Wednesdays (including supper for a small cost) and if you want more info or to know what movie we're currently watching, just give me a call, drop me an email, or stop in the church office.
So get Wednesday nights on your calendar for some fun, relaxing, at times intense, guy time! I hope to see you at the movies!
