Hi! Let's get-together for a POTLUCK and RUSSIAN MOVIE at my house on a Sunday afternoon. Bring some food and/or drink for the potluck. We will first eat and mingle - excellent opportunity to converse in Russian or English with other meetup group members - and then we will watch a Russian movie with English subtitles. I chose a very new mainstream action/drama movie which should be a fun and easy watch for everyone.

MOVIE: August Eighth (Август Восьмого)
YEAR: 2012
GENRE: Action, War, Drama
DIRECTOR: Dzhanik Fayziev
SYNOPSIS: It seems the life of the 23-year-old Moscow girl Ksenia could not get any better: her new boyfriend has planned a relaxing vacation for the two of them and her ex-husband, a Russian peacekeeper stationed in South Ossetia, has conveniently asked to spend some time with the young son just at the right time. But the idyllic reality begins to fall apart, when Ksenia unexpectedly realizes that South Ossetia, where she had just sent her young son, is on the brink of a full-scale military invasion by the neighboring Georgia. Now it is up to Ksenia to find a way into the very center of war and save her son, before it is too late.

RSVP as attending this event and I will e-mail you the exact address of my house (where this event will take place) one day before the event.

    Hi. Is there still room to join? I looks like a ton of people have signed up and I don't know how much space you have at your place.

      Hi, Tristan! This event is taking place at my home. We have a separate TV room, but it is a room, not a movie theater, so space is limited. But it is very difficult to predict how many people will come. I've had experience 30 people RSVPing here as coming, but then only 16-18 showing up. I don't know, if it will be like this again or if all the 30 people are going to show up this time. There's just no way for me to know. So I would say, if you want to come, do come.

      Thanks for letting us know. We'll try to vary the day/time of the movie night each time to make it possible for different people to attend, but it will most likely be predominantly held on Friday nights or the weekend because of our own (the hosts') work schedules.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
