I've been MIA for a couple of weeks while finishing up the school term but am now back and have updated the tentative calendar with shows for the summer. I may have to adjust some or may be busy at some point, but will be trying to do anything listed if at all possible. Events will be posted a little closer to the actual dates, especially if there is any dependency on reviews.
On a different front I wanted to quickly poll opinions for those that might have them on the next movie event (presumably July 3rd). I was originally going to do Transformers, but between a couple of alternative postings for it and the reviews sucking pretty hard (I'm sure it could still be fun, just with as much substance as a Paris Hilton music video), I was considering setting up The Hangover instead, which has been very well received. I have not seen it/put on an event myself, and apparently the one I deferred to before met with SNAFU. If some people still haven't seen it and would like to do that instead, then I can set it up and let other people handle the giant robots blowing stuff up. Let me know if you have any preferences there. I will post it soon.
I'd also like to know if there is interest in maybe doing an outdoor movie at the Seattle center. There are a few series of outdoor showings in this area but those ones are free (except maybe parking) and large enough that there is always room even if a crowd shows. Obviously weather has to be agreeable but if there is interest there I will try to post one of those as well (was eyeing Kung Fu Panda, since I sat through Princess Bride last year).
If anyone has questions or comments feel free to let me know (though as usual, no promises), and in any case, I hope everyone has a good start to their summer.
A group for both Seattle and Eastside areas for various forms of entertainment, particularly movies, or whatever the hell else we feel like doing.
The group is open to all genres and will be limited mainly by the time and preferences of the members/organizers. Additional possibilities include viewings of favorite shows, private/home events, theatre, games, etc., any relevant tie-ins or or completely irrelevent non-tie-ins that we claim to be relevant or necessary to cosmic equilibrium.
Most events will likely include a show/etc. of some sort and time to talk either before or after (the actual social part of the meetup).
This group is meant to be fun, entertaining and interesting. It may include any number of subjects including those controversial, edgy, or outright absurd. All shows, etc. should be seen with some objectivity and taken for what they are.
The environment is meant to be open and friendly and also a PC and drama free zone. Please don't take yourself too seriously. ;)
Status Note: This group is still more eastside-oriented but will trying to include more seattle events as possible.
