This group presents a great way to meet fellow movie fans just like you. We'll get together as often as possible to see a newly released movie, and that usually means at least once a month. We'll choose movie theaters on the north side of town, including Westminster, Broomfield, Northglenn and Thornton. We were interviewed by Yahoo! and it's a good summary of what we're about.
We'll almost always choose a theater near a good restaurant so we can have lunch or dinner either before or after the show. We'll try to pick places that aren't too expensive, though we will rarely end up at a fast food joint. It's tough to get to know each other at the movie itself, so a meal lets us get acquainted.
Movie schedules usually don't come out until a few days before the movie, but we want to schedule a date for a movie well in advance. That means that when you first see a Meetup event there may not be many details. But don't worry, we'll fill in the details when we know them. If you have a "no" RSVP you will not be notified of updates to events, but everyone else will.
We also ask that you keep your RSVPs up to date. Most of the time we'll make lunch or dinner reservations based on the number of people who say "yes" to an event. That means that the restaurant puts a table together and reserves a server or two to take care of us. You must check in with the organizer in order to confirm your RSVP. If you say "yes" to an event and don't show up, you are inconveniencing the restaurant. It's also embarrassing for us because the restaurant knows that we're unreliable. If you're not sure you'll be there, say "no" as your RSVP and a seat will not be reserved for you at the meal.
If you want to see the movie but don't want to join us for dinner, just note that in the event in the comments or in your RSVP. That way we won't reserve a seat for you at dinner. If you show up for the movie but not for lunch or dinner and you neglected to tell us, then you'll be marked as a no show even though we saw you at the movie. The no show is primarily concerning the meal, so please be accurate when you RSVP. If you show up for the meal but not the movie you won't be a no show -- that's okay.
If you show up to lunch or dinner without a "yes" RSVP and we run out of seats, you will probably have to sit at a different table. You may end up sitting by yourself, so be sure to let us know if you'll be there so you can definitely sit with us.
Even if you don't join us for lunch or dinner we'll still watch for you at the theater if you have a "yes" RSVP. So it's still important to keep your RSVP accurate.
If you RSVP "yes" for an event but then neglect to show up or neglect to check in with the organizer than you are a "no show" and you only get two of those. If you RSVP for a guest and your guest doesn't show up, that is also a "no show" for you. If you do it once I'll send you a reminder email, and if you do it again you will be removed from the group at that point.
There is a cutoff time when people can no longer join the event, usually 45 minutes to an hour before our meeting time. That time is shown as the time when RSVPs close. Your true RSVP is what it was at that cutoff time, so if you have a "yes" RSVP at that time and change it to "no" later then you will still be a no show. If you want to change your RSVP you must do it before the cutoff time for that event.
If you show up to an event without a "yes" RSVP that is still not cool. We're trying to keep a group that treats each other with respect so please keep up with your RSVPs. Showing up without an RSVP will count as a no show.
There are no "maybe" RSVPs. Don't RSVP "yes" until you're sure you're actually going. If you RSVP "yes" then we will be expecting you. Even if you say you are a "maybe" in your comments you are still a "yes" or a "no" depending on what your actual RSVP is.
If you aren't going, you don't even need to RSVP. A "no" RSVP and a lack of RSVP mean the same thing. Don't worry about giving us an RSVP for every event. However, if you RSVP "no" for an event then you won't get any more emails about it (so you might want to RSVP "no" just to stop some email).
All of the events are for people at least 18 years old, including your guest. If the event is kid friendly I'll note that in the description, but otherwise assume the events are for adults only.
You'll find that a lot of the same people go to the movies with this Meetup group, so if you go a second time you'll see familiar faces. This is a great way to make new friends.
Of course, we're always interested in your suggestions for movies and places to see them. We'd love to hear from you!
