We will be viewing the 85th Academy Awards ceremony in the living room af on Assistant Organizer's home in Redmond. This locale is not very accessible by public buses but would work if one does not mind walking about mile from the Overlake Transit Center.
The ceremony begins at 5:00 and will last until 8:00 or so, but participants are welcome to show up starting at 3:30 to discuss films and to watch pre-show programming. There will be handouts so you can try to predict the winners and compare your guesses with others. At last year's party, a person from the Meetup group had the most accurate predictions and won two movie tickets!
We will be watching the ceremony on a 60-inch flat screen. This is a potluck, and all participants are required to bring both food and beverage (no alcohol) contributions. The food should be more of a finger food, and should not require extensive on site preparation (a stove, oven, and microwave oven are available). I will provide filtered water, Diet Coke in cans, coffee, tea, and popcorn. A lengthier description of the potluck, as well as other details of this event such as directions and parking, will be emailed about one week before the event to the folks who have made reservations.
This event, unlike most meetups, takes place on private property, and here the host would prefer that you have attended a previous meetup with this group. To participate in this event you must answer the question that asks for your first and last name (actual name), city of residence, phone number, and email address. Failure to provide this information will result in your reservation being cancelled. There are a few friends of the host coming already which is why space in the living room is rather limited. If all spaces are full, please contact the host so we can disuses floor seating. The option to add +1 guest for this meetup is disabled -- that is how limited space is.
Here is a great time to cheer on your favorites in the company of follow film lovers!
