Hi I'm Chen, a Sydneysider recently returned from living abroad for a year. Looking to connect with likeminded film buffs and expand my social circle. Cheers!
Content of this Meetup Movie Group is only visible to members
Could you please remember to immediately press the "Your RSVP: Yes" button to change it from YES to NO, when you are no longer able to attend our meetup movie event. Thank You.
Please remember that, SYDNEY FILM BUFFS also have cheap $10 discount cinema ticket vouchers for each cinema event, available in "very limited quantities" for purchase from the event host (organiser) at each screening event, when you arrive early, just for our members to use only at our meetup movie events, PLUS sometimes free tickets to brand new releases, as well as some free tickets to sneak preview events too.
"VERY LIMITED QUANTITIES" means that seven days before each advertised screening event date, SYDNEY FILM BUFFS pre-purchases exactly 100% of the $10 discount cinema ticket vouchers needed for that event, and always based solely on the TOTAL NUMBER of genuine YES RSVPs already received seven days before the event. Of course "VERY LIMITED QUANTITIES" means that we NEVER EVER GUARANTEE to have available, any additional $10 discount cinema ticket vouchers, for everyone who decide to YES-RSVP during the six days before each advertised screening date . . . . . . . . .
So if you love movie films, love World Art-House Cinema + Foreign Cinema (sub-titled) + Indie Film and/or love Mainstream Hollywood + Australian Cinema in Sydney, plus Premium Special Event Cinema Screenings, plus Q&A Screenings, and you would love to join like minded people, then this cinema meetup group is the perfect choice for you. Here is the place for movie lovers to share their love of watching movies PLUS afterwards you can choose to discus the shared experience. Meet new people and enjoy seeing interesting, entertaining or thought provoking movies together. Sydney Film Buffs movie choices are artistically curated by our accredited FCCA film critic, who is tasked to watch and review 300+ movies every year.
We are not film snobs in this group – We are a very friendly and un-cliquey bunch – Just so you know, at any given event usually about a quarter of meetup attendees have never been to any previous event, and have not yet met anyone in the group – and of the others most have only met one or two people who are there. So do not worry about about not knowing anyone at your first event.
SAVE MONEY with this Sydney Cinemas meetup group, since you no longer need to pay for Standard Adult 2D Admission Prices currently from $18.50 to $20 to $23 for each ticket. To allow different members to come along, there are varied cinema locations chosen near to the Sydney City Area (some of those cinemas also have free on-site car parking BUT validation required) with early evening screening times selected at these local cinemas - - - 2 Dendy, 3 Palace, Cremorne Orpheum, Ritz, HOYTS at Chatswood / Broadway / EQ, Event Cinemas at George Street & Bondi Junction - - - PLUS selected movies at major film festivals too, including Flickerfest SIFF SUFF JIFF French German Spanish Italian Mexican Korean Japanese Arabic - - -
Our meetup movie group start time, is from fifteen minutes before the cinema's advertised film starting time, and also continues afterwards. Sydney Film Buffs is a very active meetup movie group, and the event hosts (organisers) do try their best to cater for all tastes and in most movie genres. HIGHLY RATED latest new release movie films are chosen, with the cinema screening events at night between 6pm and 7pm, during the first days ( never evenings on Saturdays/Sundays ) PLUS some daytime 1:00pm Saturday $25.00 Premium Special Screening Events at the CREMORNE ORPHEUM. - - -At screenings where the Events Host also states KINGSLEY - - - THEN USUALLY we could meet afterwards to discuss the movie at a local coffee shop, and we are a very friendly bunch of inspired cinema movie fans too. - - -
Of course our future events specify, either "SUGGESTED DATE" or "TIME MAY CHANGE" because our events are often listed many weeks + several months, before the cinema release for each new movie. PLEASE NOTE that cinemas sell tickets on-line for each new movie, only after they begin advertising on their website (late on Wednesday Night) the actual daily screening times for the next week. PLEASE REMEMBER that in Australia, every Thursday Morning is the start of the new "cinema week".N.B. This is a members only meetup mpvie group, so only members can see the selected cinema locations ...
INTERSTELLAR with release date of approx...6th November 2014 - - - "YES this movie film *** does NOT as yet have an Australian Cinema Release Date". - - - Because our organisers are both movie industry insiders, SYDNEY FILM BUFFS frequently advertise important upcoming movie releases, many weeks/months before any cinemas are able to advertise their upcoming movie release dates. All such cinema events will have the important notice that --- "yes the time/day/month may change" - - -
PLEASE REMEMBER that the Australian Film Censorship Board (OFLC) takes up to eight weeks to classify each new movie submitted for classification, before these new release movies are available for Australian Citizens to watch in any Australian Cinema.
- - - PLEASE NOTE THAT this movie film "INTERSTELLAR" did NOT have an Australian Cinema Release Date as at 20 December 2013 - - - so this SYDNEY FILM BUFFS advertised date of "Thursday 6th November 2014" which was only our best estimate, yes indeed could match exactly the announcement of the actual cinema date - - - "yes the time/day/month may change" - - -
Until 30 June 2014, first YES RSVP and then attend that event, and then PLEASE ask the Sydney Film Buffs organiser at that event, to give you the free voucher coupon (T&C apply) for PALACE CINEMAS "FREE Movie Club Adult MEMBERSHIP" valid at and redeemable at PALACE CINEMAS Norton Street (and you save the $19.00 annual fee)
"Every time that you arrive late, you are saying that your time is more important than the people who have been waiting for you."
There is a one-off administrative fee of $5 to try to cover meetup group costs, and this is to be paid at the first event that you attend.
N.B. Entirely out of respect for everyone else who YES RSVP early and ARRIVE early, when you discover that you are NOT ARRIVING EARLY, please do remember that your event host chooses to never ever wait for latecomers.
Entirely out of respect for everyone else who YES RSVP early and ARRIVE early, do you understand that when you no-show for an event without pressing the NO-RSVP button, then you will be removed from the group ? ...
