Continued: Casket Cinema is a film club that's moved by the movies

Artist Lenora Drowns, a habitué of the series, says the intimate setting promotes uninhibited discussion.

“The conversations after the film sometimes get really heated, in a way they wouldn’t if you were someplace like the Walker,” she said. “At the same time, no one pressures you to feel a certain way or give money.”

Sometimes the talk turns philosophical or spiritual, as it did after a screening of a film about the Burning Man festival. That randomness, Drowns said, is a large part of Casket Cinema’s appeal: “You just never know who’s going to be there or where it’s going to go.”
