The TCM Classic Movie Fan Club is for to Southern California viewers of the Turner Classic Movie network (though we are a fan group and NOT directly affiliated with TCM or its parent company Time Warner). Members of our free, non-commercial group attend local classic movie outings and and occasional viewing parties. We see these films on the big screen in an audience setting with other like-minded TCM viewers and classic movie buffs throughout Southern California--especially the greater Los Angeles area--including the annual TCM Hollywood Film Festival and venues such as the American Cinematheque at the Egyptian & AERO Theatres, the Arclight Cinema complex in Hollywood, Quentin Tarantino's New Beverly Cinema, UCLA Film Archive screenings at the Billy Wilder Theatre of the Hammer Museum, occasional tributes at the Motion Picture Academy's Samuel Goldwyn Theatre, LACMA's film programs at the Bing Theatre, periodic Disney classic screenings at the El Capitan Theatre, summertime outdoor Hollywood Bowl movie screenings, the Los Angeles Conservancy's annual Last Remaining Seats series as well as occasional TCM movie viewing dinners at member-hosted locations and other events.
Our activities are scheduled when either Jono the organizer posts them. Our group's definition of a classic movie generally means produced before the mid 1970's and also whether or not it could be a title generally shown on TCM.
The TCM Classic Movie Fan Club is open to all movie buffs 21 years of age and older who are fans of TCM, its wonderful programing & on-air hosts, reside in Southern California and enjoy various genres of classic movies including film noir, musicals, sci-fi/horror flicks, silent movies and more. Organizer Jono reserves the right to terminate memberships upon the overall wishes of the group's members. If you have any type of physical handicap, disability or have special needs, please contact the organizer in advance with your contact info to ensure that an event location will have proper accessibility.
If YOU R.S.V.P. to more than 2 group events and become a "no show" without the courtesy of updating your online R.S.V.P. status beforehand or at least sending a polite, follow up e-mail to our group's organizer explaining the circumstances, then your membership will be terminated. A lot of time and energy goes into planning our events so we will not tolerate inconsiderate members. Please honor your word whenever you R.S.V.P.
[Note from this group's organizer: Many years ago, I actually worked side-by-side with Robert Osborne for one year while Robert was a writer for the Hollywood Reporter entertainment newspaper. In that year's time I got to know him as a wonderful person, his love of movies and how Lucille Ball helped launch his start in show business. I worshiped the ground Robert walks on way before he became host for Turner Classic Movies. I later chatted with him a time or two by phone from his home in New York when I formerly produced special classic movie events at the legendary Orpheum Theatre in downtown L.A.--including the annual Spook-a-thon Film Festival. Robert still remembers me though, is very gracious and I try to always catch up with him at TCM's film festivals--JONO].
