Chess Documentary at The Kendall Square Theater

Hey guys! There is a chess documentary titled Brooklyn Castle coming to the Kendall Square Cinema this weekend. It looks absolutely amazing and is getting great reviews. It is about a Brooklyn public school's chess team and shows how chess becomes a way for the children to overcome personal struggles. I was thinking we could meet for a 7:00 show and go out for a drink afterwards. Just a quick note: I don't have the exact time for the movie yet, but I will post it as soon as it becomes available. Hope to see everyone there!

    Before the show ends, are we meeting after, and where?

    I'm sure chess players are easy to spot. Oops, there are probably many other chess peeps. Maybe Rebecca has an idea

    The movie looks good. I am planning on being there. Anybody bringing a chess set, just in case we might have to solve the world's problem over again?

    Did you all get your tickets already? Are you planning to get your tickets in advance? Please let me know if it is advisable to get them early because as of now I am planning to go there just before the movie starts.

      I agree with Tushar. I would buy tickets early to be on the safe side.

    I just bought my ticket today. I'd advise getting them early, just so they don't run out. But then again, not very likely that they'll run out of tickets for a chess documentary.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
