FREE Movie: Silver Linings Playbook @ Long Room Bar (Tooting Broadway)

The Long Room Bar is a nice bar in Tooting Broadway & they do FREE movie screenings on Monday evenings.

We can meet from 6.45pm - for drinks/dinner and the movie will be screened at 8pm.

There's another social group that has started to come along on Mondays too, so if you want a sofa seat then you need to be early/on time; the venue doesn't allow seat reservations.

We can take drinks/dinner into the room where they show the movie.

Link to the Long Room food menu:

They (are supposed to!) serve free popcorn, but u have to ask for it if u want it!

And on Mondays their burgers are 2 for £11, with a choice of beef, lamb, chicken & veggie (they have other choices on their full menu)

There's a map on the bottom of the above link.

If you're coming by tube - come out of Tooting Broadway tube - turn right (away from the traffic light junction) - the pub's on the same side of the street as the tube station - it's on a corner - it's a short walk.

If you're driving there is parking on the side street - free after 5.30pm.

The film got great reviews &  everyone that I know that has seen it says it's a must see; I kept missing it every time I wanted to see it - I'm dying to see it!

This group has a no-show policy as below:

In order to provide a place for all interested members & to be fair to the hosts & to the venues, there is a no show rule for our meetups:

- if you have RSVP'd yes and don't show up or

- if you change your RSVP from yes to no within 12 hours before the meetup takes place

you get 1 no-show point. Once you have reached 3 points within one year the meetup organisers have the right to exclude you from the group, should they choose to do so.

Also, if you are a no-show to an event then the host of that event has the choice to exclude you from their future events if they wish; hosts are not paid for their time, they give up their own time to organise & hosts events so it is extremely frustrating when there are no shows.

This rule is here so everyone can enjoy the events -  you and the hosts - it's common courtesy to let hosts know if you can't make an event - so please ensure you keep your RSVP up to date.

    The movie wasn't what I expected but exceeded my expectations - I loved it! Nice bunch of ppl who came along, we had a natter before and after the film and as always the food was tasty. A lovely Monday evening!

    I'm wearing a light blue denim dress/smock on top of dark blue denim jeans; I have my hair pulled up in a bun today.
    Sofa seats get taken up fast so do your best to be there by 6.45.
    See you soon!

    Thx for letting me know Ucheora - you're welcome to still come along but bear in mind that you probably won't get a sofa seat if you're coming around 8pm. If there are no sofa seats left then you'll need to sit on a bar chair at the back of the room where they show the movie. If there aren't any bar chairs in the room then grab them from the main bar. If you do still come along then look out for me/us after the movie.

    Hi, unfortunately my friend and I are in exactly the same boat. We may just about be able to make it in time for the movie, but not the meet up beforehand. Really gutted as was looking forward to meeting everyone properly. If anyone fancies taking our places and can definitely make, would rather offer them up now.
    So so sorry for the inconvenience Shereena. Hopefully at least see you all briefly later!
