Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Oct 27th at 3:50 for Twelve Years a Slave at the Regal Gallery Place . Look for Brian A. wearing a gray t-shirt in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
