Kurt - There are plenty of people who want to see New Moon. I didn't see the first one so it isn't on my personal list. If you have a time & day you want to go you can be the organizer for it. It really just means getting there a little early with a ChiSciFi sign somewhere in the lobby area to meet people, then the next ones in save seats for the rest. For this one I would recommend waiting a week or so until the squeeing hordes of tweens die down a bit. It helps if you know the area and have a place in mind to have a snack and a drink afterwards too.
Julian - Definitely 3D for Avatar!
Also, I want to see Men Who Stare at Goats & Pirate Radio sometime soonish as well for anyone who would like to join me. I know at least julian and Martin want to see both.
FYI - ANYONE can come up with an idea for a meetup! There are so many geeky, Sci-Fi/Fantasy events that we could schedule something just about every day! Most of us just haven't figured out how to clone ourselves so that we can spend all of our time doing the fun stuff! There is info on our meetup for organizing an event or even becoming an assistant organizer if you try it and like it. The main thing is just to be willing to be the contact person and keep up a bit with who you'll be looking for when you get there. The meetup system is set up that you can't post an event unless you are an assistant organizer, but any of us can post it even if we can't make it, and we are all happy to do it - as long as someone steps up to be the point person. Usually whoever plans on coming pitches in with that so it's generally pretty easy & fun!
Have you ever read our "Rules
" page? Most of them are just ways to make our meetup even more awesome and fun...
1) Have fun!
2) Pay your tab
3) Don't leave behind a mess
These aren't specifically required, but they are what makes meetup work:

Post some pictures either here or on our shutterfly album
Write some comments on the pictures
Help identify people *in* the pictures

...etc. I think you get the drift... We are a community. The more we contribute, the better the experience for everyone!

I'm in for all of these as well, and my sched is fairly open, though there might be a couple Wednesdays and Saturday afternoons in which I wouldn't be available...
I'd want to see Avatar in a theater that can actually do the 3D as it was intended though...

Let's talk about movies!
Below is a list of possible movies and their opening date. I only
listed ones through February that seemed appropriate for the
ChiSciFi.net group. Ok, the RiffTrax Christmas-Shorts one is an
oddball, but I saw that on the Kerasotes website and thought it would
make a fun meetup. I've never gone to one of the RiffTrax events and
would like to see what it's like.
I grabbed this information from the kerasotes.com website - click on
Coming Soon to see the movies and to get a description.
Personally, I'd like to see all of these. It just depends on when it's
scheduled. And since none of them have actual times set at the theater
yet, it's a bit hard to schedule.
So, I would like everyone to respond to the message on the discussion
board at ChiSciFi.net and state which movies you would like to see.
And when would you like to see it? Opening weekend? During a
weeknight? Let's start discussing! :-)
