AFS Virtual Movie Club – May 19th: “THX1138”

The Aurora Film Society Virtual Film Club brings you “THX1138” for our May 19th discussion.

In the future, mankind lives in vast underground cities and free will is outlawed by means of mandatory medication that controls human emotion. But when THX 1138 (Robert Duvall) and LUH 3417 (Maggie McOmie) stop taking their meds, they wake up to the bleak reality of their own existence and fall in love with each other in the process. But love is also illegal in this Orwellian dystopia, and the act of making love has made both of them outlaws on the run from an army of robotic police.

We invite you to join us via Zoom on May 19 at 7pm for analysis of “THX1138”.  We have added a link in the pulldown menu under the Virtual Movie Club button to make it easier to participate in our discussions every month.

Check out the selected films for our theatre screenings too.  Subscribers and their guests returned last month in large numbers for our screening of “Le Cercle Rouge”.  Join us this month for “The Square”.
