Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Simulcast!

In association with our brethren at CAPE and the Doctor Who and Other Cool Sci Fi Shows meetups, we are celebrating half a century of time traveling with our favorite Call Box dweller, the Doctor!



We are currently hammering out the details of our location, so sign up now so we can secure a spot that can contain our mighty nerdiness! It will definitely have to be bigger on the inside.



I am encouraging costumes, because why the fuck not? This is obviously a co-ed event, but I am not sure if it will be all-ages or not. Hope all you companions can make it out!

    And to continue the kudos to the event organizers, everyone should read the editorial about it on KPBS: http://www.kpbs.org/news/2013/nov/25/rants-and-raves-doctor-who-turns-50/

    And from me, natch:

    Ladies,

    Thank you all for making this event such a resounding success. As I always say, this group is only as good as our members, and yesterday proved that our members are the best any organizer could ask for. You all brought it, and made me so proud to attach my name to this project. You are a credit to Geek Girls of San Diego. If you have any questions or comments, please comment here or contact me directly.

    We are planning more events with our brother groups, so be on the lookout for those soon!

    Best,
    April

    And from John at the Doctor Who meetup group:

    Whovians,

    I once again want to thank you all for coming and making the event a complete success. April, Gary and I are still in awe at the sheer number of people who came and the costumes we all got to witness.

    If you took pictures, please post them on our site, or if you belong to Geek Girls of San Diego or CAPE, those sites as well. I'd like to get copies of each photo taken, and if you want to email them to me, please contact me and I will provide you one.

    On behalf of the CAPE Meetup Group, thank you so much for joining your fellow Doctor Who fanboys and fangirls and making our three group joint event such a wonderful success.

    I'd like to say a special thank you to April and John for all of their hard work in making this idea a reality and a wonderful success.

    Look for other joint events in the near future!

    Geronimo!

    So, I am definitely excited for this tomorrow! I do have a quick question that might have an obvious answer. In terms of time, the event is listed from 10:30-1:30. If I cannot possibly make it for the entire three hour extravaganza, when would be the crucial time period to be on location?

    November 22, 2013

    • april

      The show starts at 11.50, so you need to be there by then.

    Everyone, just a reminder! There will be a guest list check in and raffle opportunities. The raffle tickets are $1/each and the prizes are all Who themed. The restaurant opens at 8a, but we'll be there around 10a to start checking people in.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone. Last minute questions? Text me at[masked]

    ACH! And April was so right on the flaking... My *tremendous* apologies on this; defending my grad thesis on Tues in Hawaii so going to take off for the islands a couple days early. Enjoy the Doctor for me, I'll be wondering about it mid-flight, and looking forward to meeting you soon.

    This is from Robert at Comickaze, in case you'd rather see it in the theater: Hey I wanted to pass on that I still have a few tix available for the Fashion Valley Meetup on 11/25. I'll be refunding them on Thursday evening on my way to the CAPE Dinner Meetup but please share this if you think any of your girls might be interested. Have funwith the Simulcast! :) LAST CALL for Fashion Valley Tickets. I have very few still available at Comickaze in case anyone missed out or doesn't like to buy online but I am returning the extras to AMC Thursday. They are $19.25 (face value+$1.25 Fandango fee) or FREE with a purchase of $75 in regular priced Doctor Who items at Comickaze, you know you want that life size 10th Doctor and those nifty Tardis knee socks!! Comickaze is at 5517 Clairemont Mesa Blvd, San Diego 92117
    open til 9 Tuesday, 9-9 Wed and will be returning any remaining tix by 5pm Thursday.

    Hi, looking forward to meeting everyone. I took the last three openings. I need one more, if there are not any more cancellations by Tues I will cancel my reservations and open those spots up. I know there were several people on the other waiting list. Thanks! I wonder if I am the oldest geek in the group? :)

      PS are kids allowed?

      November 17, 2013

    • april

      Children are allowed though I would discourage small children and babies in strollers. This group is only allowing +2 guests max.

    I have to move that day - grrr! I thought I could take a break and still join but that's not working out so I'll give up my spots. Looks like I'll be watching it at home on my DVR instead!

      Yes you do, just respond to the email I sent. ")

    April - Since we rented it out AND it's during the day, do we know if it's all ages? Marina is as big a Whovian as I (Maybe bigger!) so I had included her in my initial RSVP. Their Facebook page has a "Good For Kids" tag on their "About" area, so I'm guessing so - but just wanted to check if anyone had mentioned. If not, I may have to give up our spaces as she'd probably do me bodily harm if I saw it before her, lol.

      I'll have to check. I will get back to you shortly.

    Will this be broadcast in 3D, like I've been hearing about? And if so, does anyone know a good source of cheap-ish 3D glasses?

      I think the 3D is only in the movie theaters.
