Are you in your 20s? Do you like watching movies? Are you into artsy stuff and want to make friends who are also into artsy stuff? Then this is the group for you!
At least once per week, we watch a movie and then get drinks afterwards. Sometimes this is a specially selected screening at our own Cine NYC space, and other times we see something playing in theaters -- both new movies and classics.
There are no real bounds in what we see, in regards to nationality, genre, release date, popularity, or even just straight-up weirdness. Variety is the spice of life, and as long as something looks interesting, we can see it. Suggestions are always welcome!
So, let's watch some movies, get to know each other, and have a great time!
(This meetup is limited solely to ages 20 through 30: college students and young professionals, basically. There are lots of "20s and 30s" groups on Meetup, but in practice they end up being mostly older people, and our goal is to create a social space for people in their 20s. We require members to have a profile picture showing their face. Administrators of the group can decline or remove members for any reason, and this is non-negotiable.)
Synopsis: An aspiring fashion designer (Thomasin McKenzie) is mysteriously able to enter the 1960s, where she encounters a dazzling wannabe singer (Anya Taylor-Joy). However, the glamour is not all it appears to be, and the dreams of the past start to crack and splinter into something far darker. Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tB9WUIv9KH8
Fundamentally, this film is a female fantasy about looking in the mirror and seeing Anya Taylor-Joy. It's also a male fantasy about looking anywhere and seeing Anya Taylor-Joy. For real though, it looks really cool. Just watch the trailer and you'll see.
Alamo Drafthouse @ 7PM on Saturday the 30th. This is a dine-in theater, so you can eat during the movie (I plan to). We'll go out for drinks after, and probably stay out well into the night.
