Polyamory Support Group

Relationships are hard, and being polyamorous means different challenges and social stigma to handle. Family, metamors, being out or not… work and social dynamics, etc.

Let’s circle talk and support one another. Join us on Sunday, March 11th from 3:30-5:30 PM. The poly community here is us ❤💛💚💙💜

Sunday Afternoon Movie

“Death to Smoochy”

We’ll be screening “Death to Smoochy” on Sunday, March 11th at 1 PM. All Common Root events are free & open to the public.

This black comedy stars Robin Williams and Edward Norton. Directed by and featuring Danny Devito, it examines the seamy underbelly of Children’s Television. Please note! This is NOT a movie for children! This movie did not do well in it’s theatrical release but has attained cult status in the intervening decades. Oddly enough this movie proved to me that Norton could act. Also features Harvey Fierstein acting much against type. Also the movie Jon Stewart mentions from time to time as a sort of old shame. As always, popcorn will be provided.

It also attempts to show the discrimination these women faced and the general social environment of Virginia in the 1950s. As usual, popcorn will be provided. Discussion afterward.
