Talk Cinema is great in concept. Going to a 'surprise' movie is fun, especially in the morning. They even give you an option to ask questions about the movie 24 hours in advance. But don't count on them to tell you the truth when you ask about ratings. Based on their answer that the movie would be PG-13, I took my (sensitive) 14-year-old son to Talk Cinema. He is a movie buff, and I thought he would love it. But the movie was Rated R and not only boring, but completely inappropriate for a young teen. It ruined my experience completely. We didn't stay for the 'talk' portion. We could hardly wait to get out of there. I will not give them another try.

For the most part we have loved Talk Cinema, and the leaders. They have opened our eyes to new thoughts about each movie.

About this Business
After nearly two decades obsessing over cinema as a film critic for Variety and editor-in-chief of Film Comment, Harlan Jacobson founded Talk Cinema—a series of early film screenings hosted at multiple theaters around the country. Each year, Harlan handpicks independent and foreign films from the world's leading festivals, often resulting in some of the first public screenings of award-winning prestige pictures. After each screening, he hosts experts such as scholars, filmmakers, and critics from the New York Times and the Chicago Tribune during discussions modeled after those held at festivals and particularly cultured kids' treehouses. Talk Cinema also occasionally hosts guided tours of festivals in international cities such as Reykjavik, Havana, Palm Springs and Locarno.
