What we're about

Are you in your 20s? Do you like watching movies? Are you into art and want to make friends who are also into art? 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 cool, we can see it. 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.

If you want to suggest any movies then message one of the organizers!

"Blade Runner" @ Roxy Cinema (35mm)

Roxy Cinema New York

https://www.roxycinemanewyork.com/screenings/blade-runner/ -- I got seat D8, post yours in the event chat once you buy!

Synopsis: The Los Angeles of the future. Six latest-generation "replicants" (androids) stage a mutiny, escape their handlers and try to live off the grid passing as humans. A weary ex-cop (Harrison Ford) is hired to hunt them down.

It's actually kind of hard to imagine, from this vantage point, a time when science fiction wasn't soaked in neon, urban decay and noirish vibes, but all those tropes can be traced back to one film, and that film is "Blade Runner", far and away the most influential sci-fi film of the last four decades. No matter how many times you've seen it, you can always keep coming back to it and never exhaust it, and there's nothing quite like seeing its revolutionary art design on a big screen. It's the most atmospheric film ever made.

5PM @ Roxy Cinema on Saturday June 10th. Not sure yet if we're staying out after the film, or where exactly we're going. But we might.

"Asteroid City" @ Alamo Drafthouse Downtown BK

Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Downtown Brooklyn

https://drafthouse.com/nyc/show/asteroid-city -- I got row 4 seat 21, post yours in the event chat once you buy! This is already half sold out, and I expect it to sell out long before the screening date, so buy soon if interested.

Synopsis: World-changing events spectacularly disrupt the itinerary of a Junior Stargazer/Space Cadet convention in an American desert town circa 1955.

Wes Anderson's latest film. As usual with him, it stars too many Hollywood celebrities to accurately list, including but not limited to: Jason Schwartzman, Scarlett Johannson, Tom Hanks, Tilda Swinton, Bryan Cranston, Margot Robbie, Edward Norton, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeffrey Wright, Hope Davis, Jeff Goldblum -- but, in a stunning departure from Wes's norm, the film does NOT star Bill Murray!

Saturday the 17th, 7:45PM, at Alamo Drafthouse Downtown Brooklyn. We'll go out bar-hopping after the movie, as usual.

"Hard Eight" @ Metrograph (35mm)


https://metrograph.com/film/?vista_film_id=9999001237 -- I got seat F-5. Post yours in the event chat once you buy your ticket!

Synopsis: Veteran gambler Sydney (Philip Baker Hall) befriends a young man named John (John C. Reilly), transforming him into a Las Vegas casino champion. John falls hard for an escort named Clementine (Gwyneth Paltrow), and the couple soon finds themselves in need of Sydney's help. But soon an unwelcome figure from Sydney's past (Samuel L. Jackson) surfaces as well...

This tight, hard-boiled neo-noir was Paul Thomas Anderson's debut film, and it's probably his least seen; even I haven't seen it yet (this will be my first time). PTA would go on to direct "Boogie Nights" just one year later, propelling him to Hollywood super-stardom.

Sunday June 18th, 7:10PM at the Metrograph. It's a short film (just about 100 minutes) so we'll have some time to grab food and drinks after the movie.
