Welcome to the Buffalo Independent Movie Watchers (Formerly Buffalo Movie Buffs)

Buffalo Independent Movie Watchers is for all kinds of movie fans but the primary focus of this group will be to watch small release, independent films.   I schedule the first Friday of every month primarily at the Dipson Eastern Hills Mall.  Additionally there will be one or two more meet ups throughout the month typically on weekends.  At least once a quarter there will be  a special event scheduled such as live ballet, opera, or a seminar etc. at a theater or other venue.  After the movie, time permitting, there will be a mixer at a location nearby.  This will be a meet and greet and we will have some discussion about the film.

I am proud to announce that this group has a partnership with Dipson Theaters.  As a member of this meet up group you will enjoy matinee pricing for our movie events held at these theaters.  (Some exclusions may apply).  Currently there is a promotion at Dipson to purchase a reusable bucket of popcorn.  This bucket is offered to members of this meet up group for a reduced price.

To  receive notifications and view our events you need to join our group.  You will receive a 60 day free trial membership that  allows you to see meet up notices and participate in our events.  If you like the group and want to continue, our dues are just $12 per year which entitles you to any special discounts and promotions offered, like the Dipson discount listed above. If you choose not to join after this 60 day trial period,  you will no longer see meet up notices and be able to rsvp to the group events.

At this time I am also permitting the members to organize meet ups.  People have varying tastes and schedules so the more interaction we have, the more members and fun we can have.

Suggestions are always welcome.

Hope to see you at our next movie.

Your Organizer.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
