Note to First Time Moviegoers

If this is your first movie with the group, there is no fee to attend.

This group has been successful partly because members have a genuine interest in meeting fellow independent movie goers. We don't always know where to look for you, especially first timers. Consider posting your picture and printing out the pictures of the attendees to help find everyone easier.

We have multiple meeting places:

  • BEFORE THE MOVIE: In the lobby or the Entrance door to the movie 5-10 minutes before the movie starts

  • AFTER THE MOVIE: By the entrance door or ticket office

  • "EATS" LOCATION: Reserved table at a local establishment usually under the name "Movie Group"

We don't always sit together in the movie theater but if you see a bunch of people talking about good movies they have seen, it is probably us. Please join in. We are always happy to get new people involved.

In the world of Independent films, it is recommended that you check back a few days before the event to make sure the movie, restaurant, location or time has not changed.


The $5.00 yearly fee (or $1.50 for one movie) goes toward charges incurred for using the MeetUp website. You can access PayPal or pay your fee to the Organizer at the event. Your first event is no charge.
