Friday Movie Nights: Captain America: Civil War (2016) + Fawlty Towers
We have been doing a six degrees of separation thing, but decided that for the movie tonight we would take a quick break and have a viewing of Captain America: Civil War. Why are we doing this you ask? Well, on Sat April 28, Nerd HQ is heading to the movies to watch the latest Avengers Film. We felt that a recap movie before this outing was in order. We will continue with our six degrees of separation the following week (May 4th) with our previously announced movie, The Money Pit. We are changing things up just a little tiny bit. Fridays are still going to be movie nights, however, we've decided to expand outside the Science Fiction realm and watch some other great movies. If you have a movie that you would like to watch with the group, send me (Samantha) a private message and your organizers will take the suggestion under consideration. Captain America Civil War: Political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability when the actions of the Avengers lead to collateral damage. The new status quo deeply divides members of the team. Captain America (Chris Evans) believes superheroes should remain free to defend humanity without government interference. Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) sharply disagrees and supports oversight. As the debate escalates into an all-out feud, Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) must pick a side. Just before we start the movie, we will watch one episode a week of Fawlty Towers. Please note that Fawlty Towers will start at 6:50pm, so arrive early if you don't want to miss it. The evening will start out with people arriving at the caffe and ordering dinner (if they're hungry). At approx 6:50pm we will start Fawlty Towers, followed directly by the movie at approx 7:20pm. After the movie, people tend to hang out for a while, chatting, playing games, sometimes there is even karaoke, and for any of the crafty type people, you will fit right in with some members who do all of the above while they knit, crochet or cross-stitch. There is no cost to join the event itself, but we do ask that you show respect to La Fontana Caffe, a place of business, where we get to hold our events for free, if your finances will allow you, please make a purchase of at least $5 to help support the caffe, so that we can continue to use the space free of charge. Also, we ask you not to bring in any outside food or drink.

What we're about

Public Group

Would you classify yourself as a geek or a nerd? Do you like science fiction and fantasy, movies and TV, comic books and board games, cosplay, and any of the other wonderfulness that the "muggles" might classify as weird? Are you looking to make new friends or re-connect with some old ones who share these similar interests?

Do like watching movies and TV with like minded people. How about crafting projects, knitting or crochet or needlepoint? Would you like to have a Family style dinners where the conversation topics includes Zombies, Aliens and Superheroes? Do you ever find yourself spontaneously breaking out in song?

Nerd HQ is supportive of all geekdom out there! Join in and become “one of us” as we venture forth and immerse ourselves in the vast field of nerdery. Many of our members have found some really true and great friends by coming out to events. Nerd HQ knows it can be hard to meet new people so we are pretty low key and friendly. You can engage with people as much or as little as you would like, just sit down with the group and either listen in to conversation or join in. It's up to you how much you would like to participate as you get to know other members and make friends.

Any suggestions for events or activities are welcomed and appreciated. See you at Headquarters!
