The Movie Club

Here are the movie selections for each week

This is the list of movies that Alexa Foreman will be discussing reach week.  It is expected you will watch the movie before the class.    The name of the movie is a link to the YouTube location where you can watch the movie.  We also placed a graphic at the bottom of the page that explains what each of the buttons are in the YouTube tool bar.

If you have a smart TV, YouTube may be available to you under “apps.”  If so, you can watch the movie right on your TV.  If that is not the case, you can watch the movie by clicking the link on any tablet or computer.
