Join us for savory silver screen classics! Whether it's Blockbuster films, Indies, Documentaries, or Classics... COME JOIN US as we tour the suburbs visiting different theaters as we watch great flicks and dine out! Participate in theater going experiences of all kinds..IMAX, drive-ins, home theater, cinemas--as well as live theater from time-to-time. We see movies and lawn concerts, go bowling and shoot pool/billiards, and sometimes play whirlybird... We view everything from the latest blockbusters, action/adventure, goofball comedies, suspense/thrillers, romantic comedies and tearjerkers from Hollywood, to arthouse/indie flicks, foreign films, documentaries and classic films as well. Come share your thoughts, comments and ideas about the films along with popcorn and camaraderie. Generally, we'll go somewhere after for dinner or coffee and dessert to dissect the movie. At times meals are sold during the viewing. We host movie events at theaters all across Chicago's surrounding areas (but primarily in the western suburbs). We'll go to almost every sort of movie theater under the sun - classic single screen palaces; to funky neighborhood theatres; art-house theatres; state of the art megaplexes; and IMAX theaters. We'll be checking out the brand new Stadium seating styled theaters to the older Grand Dame style ones. We have events for early morning matinees in the summer, Friday Opening Night shows, old-fashioned Saturday nights at the movies, midnight shows and retro/classic film screenings. We've even visit few drive-ins, too! We cover all genres of films, but do concentrate on the big block busters--since we are trying to attract a decent sized crowd for our outings. Make sure you check out our Message Board for updates... We post free/discounted passes & sweepstakes listings there as well. You are encouraged to inform the organizer of free/discounted passes, new venues, and particularly of upcoming movie launches or recent great films that you have viewed. Sometimes, we'll be offered free passes to movie screenings, but most of the time it's your job to pick up your ticket, food & beverage selections. We might entertain going to someone's HOME THEATER, and in that case it is at the sole-discretion of the Organizer and host as to who may attend. All other times, it is the decision of the Organizer and/or Asst Organizers if a member/guest will be permitted to join in our activities. We have a Discussion and Message board if you are looking for a buddy to travel along with you on individual private excursions too. We go to see movies, sometimes see plays, We EAT, We Chat... It's about having fun! *We hope to be doing some movie rental viewing while chowing down--after either ordering take-out, delivery, or creating our own meals (this if a few people in a few different areas volunteer to open up their homes for use as well) If you can host your location, please email me with the specifics... thanks in advance! Unless otherwise specified, this group is intended for mature adults over the age of 21. There will be some viewings with the intention of having families attend; usually for a animated flick, on the weekend with the hopes of having divorced parents with visitation rights able to meet others in similar situations as well as those more traditional families. (in the process of selecting new meetup events for the group; if you have some suggestions or would like to volunteer either your location for a cookout, a culinary training session, your home theater for viewing of flicks, or your time to help host an event, please use the Contact Organizer link once you join)

Movie Promoters, we do accept free blocks of tickets if you are interested in promotion/marketing of your films. We concentrate our outings in the City of Chicago as well as the Western Suburbs (from Rosemont on the east to Batavia on the west; Plainfield on the south to Bloomingdale on the north) I post the screenings on several of my other groups as well and we can comfortably use 50-100 passes on somewhat short notice.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
