How (And How Not) to Watch a Movie

Christian Union New York adopted a new format for their latest salon on March 26, 2019, when they invited guest speaker Caleb Brown to speak on the topic How (And How Not) to Watch a Movie. Rather than the usual lecture followed by Q&A format, Brown led a room of nearly thirty attendees through the pilot episode of Downton Abbey, taking regular pauses to point to the expertly crafted use of camera-angles, iconography, and audio that casual viewers (i.e. the majority of us) rarely pick up on. A short but lively discussion followed.

Over thirty attendees were present.

Scott Crosby, director of Christian Union Cities, shares on the model of Christian Union’s professional ministry and the power of networks to transform society. He draws on historical examples like the Reformation to show that it is when believers from all realms of society utilize influence to serve God that long-term biblical change can be fostered.
