The idea is simple – just getting together a few people interested in seeing plays and other theatrical performances, and independent / interesting films, in Islington and Hackney (and, once in a while, sneaky jaunts further afield). For each outing there will be plans to have something to eat or drink beforehand or afterward – you’re welcome to join in. Key places are:

• theatres – the Almeida, the Arcola, Park Theatre, the King's Head, the Hope, the Barbican, the Old Red Lion, the Rosemary Branch, the Pleasance
• cinemas – the Rio, the Barbican, the Hackney Picturehouse, Rich Mix

In terms of how it works, members must book and pay for their own tickets with the theatre/cinema. There are occasional exceptions (sometimes I make a group booking, though only for members who prepay) – but please remember that in order to attend the event you need a confirmation from either the Meetup organiser or the theatre/cinema that you have paid for and been allocated your ticket.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
