The Long Room Bar is a nice bar in Tooting Broadway & they do FREE movie screenings on Monday evenings.
The movie is shown in their back room on a large white screen & they have comfy leather sofas and coffee tables so we can take drinks/dinner into the room where they show the movie.
It's not a cinema experience but it's still a nice way to watch a movie - and it's free - so why not give it a try.
We can meet from 7.15pm - for drinks/dinner and the movie will be screened at 8pm.

There's a map on the bottom of the above link. The nearest tube is Tooting Broadway - come out of the tube station and turn right (ie away from the main traffic junction) - the pub is on a corner on the same side of the street as the tube station; it's a short walk from the tube - note it's on Mitcham Road - not the High Street.
About the film (running time 129 mins):
Set in late-19th-century Russia high-society, the aristocrat Anna Karenina enters into a life-changing affair with the affluent Count Vronsky.
Tom Stoppard (screenplay)
Leo Tolstoy (novel)
We have 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.
