Help support your MeetupChip in
Introduction: If you enjoy an evening(or afternoon) out for a nice meal & a movie, then this group is perfect for you.
We attend evening & afternoon shows any day of the week, as well as weekends. Although a lot of our events do involve a meal before or after a show, sometimes we just go to the movie only.
You can also join us just for the meal or movie if you want. Your choice, entirely.
Note: Women Only Group, Sorry Guys
We see movies of every genre; Independent, Foreign, Oscar Nominated, Arthouse, Classic, Historical, Comedies, Dramas, Horror, Romantic Comedies, Suspense, Action, Thrillers, and so much more.
If you are a fellow movie lover looking to make new friends, see exciting new films and enjoy various interesting restaurants around the Pittsburgh area, this group is for you.
Come join us so we can share good times and make wonderful memories together.
NOTE: IT IS A REQUIREMENT FOR MEMBERSHIP THAT YOU INCLUDE A PHOTO OF YOURSELF BEFORE MEMBERSHIP CAN BE APPROVED (NO ANIMATED, ANIMAL PHOTOS UNLESS MEMBER IS INCULDED, AS THE PICTURE MUST BE MAINLY OF YOURSELF, OR GROUP/COUPLE PHOTOS THAT ARE CLEAR WHO THE NEW MEMBER IS).
We require this because when a new member meets the group for the first time it is essential for the Organizer (myself), and other members to be able to recognize you. This is beneficial for both the group & Assistant Organizers as well as the new member, so you are not wandering around the Theater or restaurant trying to find us, as well as us trying to meet you for the first time.
IT IS ALSO A REQUIREMENT THAT A PICTURE OF THE MEMBER BE MAINTAINED FOR CONTINUED MEMBERSHIP.
NO SHOW POLICY: If you RSVP "yes" for an event and find that cannot make it before the RSVP cutoff time, we require that you come back to the Meetup site and update your RSVP to "no" ASAP.
It is also required that if you are scheduled to attend and the event has started that you contact the Organizer or Event Host immediately(Organizers will usually provide a phone number where they can be reached in this instance.)
If you fail to attend a scheduled event, change your RSVP or contact the event host, you will be counted as a No-Show, unless there is sudden emergency or problem.
You will be counted as a "No Show" without exception if we do not hear from you.
If a member is a "No Show" 3 times without an explanation to either the Assistant Organizer or myself, they will be removed from "Pittsburgh Silver Screen Dinner & a Movie" group.
RSVP's: There is not a "Maybe" option for RSVP's.
CHRONIC LAST MINUTE CANCELLATIONS: We also have a policy concerning chronic last minute cancellations.
Last minute problems such as weather issues, illness, accidents, staying late at work, etc. are of course excusable and understandable circumstances that will arise. However, people who sign up for Events and cancel at the last minute, will begin being marked as a no-show when the problem starts to become chronic. If this problem continues, they will be removed from the group. This includes people who double-book and cancel with our group to attend an Event with another group at the last minute or day of a scheduled Event.
It takes a lot of time and work to plan these Events, and Members who do this are wasting myself and the other Assistant Organizers' time. It is better to wait until you are sure that you can make it, rather than sign up then cancel at the last minute. Our group(and other Meetup Groups) have and are having, major problems with this issue.
Also, we frequently have waiting lists for other Members when an Event is full, and it is unfair and discourteous to cancel at the last minute leaving people that are waiting for a cancellation no time to plan to attend the Event, or it's become so late that they have made other plans.
MY PHONE NUMBER IS AS FOLLOWS: 724-980-3893, in case you need to reach me for any reason.
It is a good idea to put it in your phone contacts so you have it handy if you need to reach me.
NO SALES POLICY: WE ARE STRICTLY A DINNER & MOVIE GROUP(SOCIAL GROUP), AND NOT A SALES OR BUSINESS NETWORKING GROUP OF ANY KIND.
THEREFORE, WE DO NOT ALLOW ANY MEMBER TO SELL, PROMOTE SALES, OR DISTRIBUTE ANY MATERIAL TO PROMOTE SELLING OF ANY KIND DURING ANY OF OUR SCHEDULED EVENTS OR POST ANY SUCH ANNOUNCEMENTS, LINKS, WEBSITES, DONATION SITES ETC. ON OUR DISCUSSION BOARD.
PEOPLE GATHERING FOR SOCIAL EVENTS OR OUTINGS DON'T WISH TO BE APPROACHED OR BOTHERED WITH SOMEONE TRYING TO SELL THEM SOMETHING WHEN THEY ARE OUT FOR AN EVENING OR AFTERNOON TO SOCIALIZE.
ALSO, MYSELF AN OTHER EVENT HOSTS WORK FOR FREE TO ORGANIZE FUN, INTERESTING EVENTS THAT WE PUT A LOT OF EFFORT & CREATIVITY INTO INDIVIDUALLY.
WE ARE NOT SPENDING THE TIME CREATING EVENTS FOR MEMBERS TO HAVE A FORUM WITH WHICH TO SELL OR PROMOTE PERSONAL SALES, BUSINESSES, CAUSES, ETC.
I BELIEVE THERE ARE NETWORKING GROUPS FOR THAT PURPOSE.
