The Akron Independent Film Lovers is a friendly, diverse, and welcoming group of people who share a love of independent films.
Join us for films at The Nightlight Cinema, the Akron Art Museum, and the Akron Public Library, and after the films for food and conversation.
Although we are primarily a film group, we also support local arts and culture. We've attended Talk Before the Walk at the Akron Art Museum and Akron2Akron's walking tour with David Giffels followed by a free reception hosted by The Lockview.
Please read the following information about our group.
FIRST TIMERS Joining a Meetup group is easy. Going to your first meetup is not so easy, especially if you go alone. Let us know if it's your first meetup so we can look for you. Posting your photo makes it easier for us to find you.
DUES Dues pay for our Meetup costs, compensate our organizers, and encourage more engaged members. You may attend our meetups for 180 days (six months) before you will be required to pay dues. Dues are $6.00 if you pay online and $5.00 if you pay cash.
ANNOUNCEMENTS Update the Email and Notifications settings in your profile to include announcements, reminders, and changes to our meetups. The Meetup app is another good way to stay informed about our group.
RSVPs & RESTAURANTS Don't be a no-show! If you RSVP for an event, please be respectful and show up. If you are unable to attend, please update you RSVP, especially when restaurant reservations have been made.
THE NIGHTLIGHT CINEMA The theater has 50 seats. Screenings of popular films often sell out, especially on the weekends. Don't be turned away because of a sellout. Go to nightlightcinema.com to order your ticket(s) online.
PARKING There is free street parking in downtown Akron after 6:00 PM weekdays and on weekends and in the deck across the street from the Akron Art Museum.
