A Movie Room

Welcome to The Movie Room!

We are a film study group — film scholars, critics, and fans — who focus on communication in film. By design, we come from a variety of career backgrounds: from engineering, science, management consulting, property and household management to interior design, law, and education.

The resources on this site represent our writing and research that has accumulated from years of film study as a group exploration. Over these years, we have watched and critiqued over 80 movies.

Our articles encompass, among other topics, storytelling, documentary, methods for careful reading of films, the history and techniques of film making, and theories and philosophy of film.

As of 2019, we are still catching up and adding to our repository of monthly issues that began in 2010, posting more recent work first. So, please stay tuned.

Calling All Film Fans!

Please join us in our movie-watching events on the second Thursday of every month during the academic year.

Minions watching movies
Minions watching movies as a group.

Although you may not be physically present, our work benefits from learning about what others observe in film communication.

Therefore, we hope you will take part in our discussions via comment on our articles, Twitter, or Facebook group. Even better, let us know that you have used our materials in a film group of your own.

Whatever your interest in our topics of discussion — from those represented in “People magazine” to  .  .  .  the sky’s no limit in esotericism! — we want to hear from you.

To receive our monthly issue about the coming attraction in a timely manner, you may wish to enter your email address in the subscription form below.

We will never contact you, or share or publish your personal information. In fact, we will not see your information ourselves unless you contact us!


Thank you for your interest in Movies on Chatham.
