First film in March at The Long Room is a movie loosely based on the events that took place in Japan post their surrender. I guess most of us are too young to remember but too old to have been taught about it in history lessons!
As the Japanese surrender at the end of WWII, Gen. Fellers is tasked with deciding if Emperor Hirohito will be hanged as a war criminal. Influencing his ruling is his quest to find Aya, an exchange student he met years earlier in the U.S. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2103264/
The cast includes Tommy Lee Jones and Mathew Fox.
The Long Room Bar is a nice bar in Tooting Broadway & they do FREE movie screenings on Monday evenings.
Meet from 7 pm - for drinks/dinner and the movie will be screened at 8pm.
Seating is limited & on a first come basis - so if you want a sofa seat then you need to be early/on time; the venue doesn't allow seat reservations.
You can take drinks/dinner into the room where they show the movie. They serve free popcorn during the movie :)
And on Mondays their burgers are 2 for £12, with a choice of beef, lamb, chicken & veggie.

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.
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.
