What we're about

Do you also find it difficult to find people who want to watch the same movies as you do? Then, this group is for you. Let's go explore the variaty of movies avaliable in Shanghai's movie theatres. Let's exchange thoughts in a bar after the movie or have dinner, lunch, coffee, brunch or breakfast before.

I don't want this group to be limited to watch english-language movies only, so movies of all languages are welcome as long as they have english subtitles.

Feel free to become an organizer within this group, create your own meetup event and find like-minded people.
