Welcome to the Raleigh Movie Fans Meetup Group. It's a privilege to organize this for you and as a team we work really hard to come up with interesting events and varied programming to keep things fresh and fun. As always your comments or suggestions are completely welcome and your team is always listening, some of the best ideas for my meetup groups have come from the members, and ultimately you're the reason we do this.
The Raleigh Movie Fans have two main events :
Special Advance Screenings:
Our biggest events are Special Advance Screenings. From time to time Raleigh Movie Fans are invited to see screenings of movies that will be opening soon. These are free screenings at area movie theaters such as Regal North Hills and Regal CrossRoads.
The rules for Advance Screenings are as easy as 1, 2, 3: (Borrowed from Robert McDowell, thanks Robert!)
1. ARRIVE EARLY: The earlier, the better. 60 to 90 minutes is standard.
2. ARRIVE TOGETHER: No one likes people breaking in line. Moreover, the passes are "admit one passes", so people should be admitted in the order in which they get in line.
3. LEAVE CELL PHONES IN THE CAR: Just to be on the safe side, leave your cell phones and other video-taking electronic devices in the car. Some screenings allow cell phones; but if cell phones are not allowed, you don't want to have to take yours to the car at the last minute.
Our Saturday/Sunday Matinee's, are usually held twice a month at area cinemas. Our Saturday/Sunday movies are when we see newly released films and then enjoy a meal and drinks together at a nearby establishment. The "home" for this event is either the Brier Creek Regal Cinema or the Regal North Hills Cinema. Though we like to venture to other venues and locales. We announce the title and location of the Meetup usually within a week-week and a half of the upcoming weekend.
Another growing and exciting event are the Cheap Seats nights, usually held once or twice a month. Blue Ridge Cinema offers 2nd run features for $2.50 a ticket plus special recession busting concession prices! We meet as a group and decide what to see together. Join us on select Tuesdays for an Extreme Time.
