Note from Jobeda: If you've never seen this on the big screen (with big sound!), do not pass over this opportunity; it's a breath-taking experience. Please buy your ticket asap as screenings of 2001 always sell out. Your host Nidhi already has her ticket, so all set.
"2001" is a story of evolution. Sometime in the distant past, someone or something nudged evolution by placing a monolith on Earth (presumably elsewhere throughout the universe as well). Evolution then enabled humankind to reach the moon's surface, where yet another monolith is found, one that signals the monolith placers that humankind has evolved that far. Now a race begins between computers (HAL) and human (Bowman) to reach the monolith placers. The winner will achieve the next step in evolution, whatever that may be.
Please state below if you intend to attend the pre-film dinner so that we know how many to make the booking for. If you hate Chinese food, let us know because we could go for Thai or Korean or Vietnamese etc.
Geek Chic costs: Full Membership of this group is £15 a year. You can attend two events for free. You can pay any time by Paypal using the link on the left navigation pane, or
London Geek Chic organises trips to sciencey events to help single people meet other single people with shared interests, while enjoying London's extraordinary science exhibitions, museums, talks, stargazing and other events.
(Please note this is a paid membership group - see more at the end of this description.)
Our events are eclectic but might include talks or exhibitions at the Royal Society, the Dana Centre, the Royal Institution, Wellcome Collection, Institute of Physics, UCL or Imperial lecture series etc - these are almost always followed by a trip to a pub afterwards. We love science standup comedy, (yes, it's a thing, the best thing) and you can expect at least one of those each month. We also do regular visits to the Science Museum Lates and The Natural History Museum After Hours and the Regents Park stargazing nights.
Although the interest areas in science and geekery are very broad, I started the group because
a) I felt it's still way better than the generic singles groups on here as at least members have similar interests to begin with and
b) it's a great way to find people to go with to the amazing science and geek events London has to offer.
Please do suggest events, all members are able to schedule events. I for one am keen to discover things I might not think of on my own, so please feel free to contribute ideas.
And oh - please have a name, a picture and complete your Profile Questions. It helps us identify each other, creates a friendly community, makes people feel safe, attracts new members and helps continue conversations in between Meetups.
It's free to join this group and come and try out our events. If you like it and stick around for more than 2 meetups, then Full Membership costs only £15 for a whole year. Our feedback is that even just as a listings page, this is more than worth the money! I hope you will join us and I really look forward to meeting you.
