• Dann & Raymond's Movie Club usually convenes on the first Thursday of the month (that would be May 1) at the Schaumburg Township District Library in Schaumburg. But a schedule change has bumped us to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 15. So, mark your calendars.

Film historian Raymond Benson and I will present a special program devoted to movies we both really like but have never presented so far in our seven-year partnership. Raymond tilted more toward the classics in his choices; I went more for movies I know may be flawed, but I love them nonetheless.

Join us! Film clips! Free admission! Go to for details.
