2:00 pm Meetup time is always approximate & will be updated as theater schedule is released! Please read entire details of how meetup/movie times are determined...
Movie meetup location & time is approx as we have to wait for theaters to release/update showtimes--which usually occurs on the Thursday before the Friday opening. Even then, movie times can change up to, and including, the day of the movie. So, please make sure you check the day of the movie meetup.
I do my best to keep it updated as the date/movie gets closer but I'm at the mercy of the theaters and I work a very intensive full time job that does not allow for a lot of downtime during the week.
We meet Inside, by benches, in front of concession( at Marquee) and at benches in front of bathrooms ( at AMC) and inside right side by ticket-taker (at Regal) .
My cell is [masked]. PLEASE RSVP if you are coming & unRSVP if you are not or text me either way. It is impossible for me to keep track of each member attending each show and run the group and attend the movies and interact with members that attend showing unless you all keep me posted on your plans. :)
This way I'm not waiting for someone who has no plans to show up or we don't wait for someone who is attending because they never RSVPd. Also, if you do not RSVP, you will not be sent the emails that automatically generate if an event time/location/movie title is changed. Sometimes; especially, independent / art house movies, do not open as planned and we have to shift titles. It happens and is even out of control of the theaters as the studios have the control over this since movies are uploaded digitally now.
Please click on the ASSIGNED theater link below (whichever is applicable) THE DAY OF THE MOVIE MEET-UP to check any updated movie time changes.
We will always lean toward the EARLIEST MATINEE between 2-5PM with optional dinner after (those that show up, vote for the restaurant; majority wins) and EARLIEST PRIME BETWEEN 6-8PM.
DO NOT rely on apps like Flixster, Fandango, or Yahoo as they are often wrong/unreliable and do not reflect the most accurate times. The group goes by the actual websites of the assigned theater only. The links are below.

We DO NOT see 3D movies as a general rule as they are more expensive, and frankly, make most people sick and/are annoying and seem to be a marketing ploy. If a movie is switched to 3D, we will ALWAYS see the regular version and it will almost always be an EARLIER time.
I'll try to update the comments section as often as possible, if need be, and if you have a question or need clarification always make a comment in the specific movie listing and I will answer it ASAP or others might be able to help as well if they have more updated info.
You can text me as well if that is easier; my cell is [masked].
I know this is a large/vague time range but the theaters are so unreliable with times that we're at their mercy and there needed to be a fall-back plan so members aren't guessing which time the movie meet-up *might* be; especially, if/when there are 2 matinee options.
I hope to see ALL of you at the movies & after for food/drinks and spirited movie discussions! :)
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.
