Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, June 5th at 7:05pm for “Brothers” at the Kendall Square Cinema. Look for Sean wearing a nametag and sitting with his crutches in the little seating area in the lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
