Could you please remember to go to the SFB website to immediately press the "You're going RSVP: Yes" to change it from YES to NO, by unticking and/or pressing the X button - - - when you are no longer able to attend our SFB meetup movie event. Thank You.
Please remember that, SYDNEY FILM BUFFS occasionally from time to time, do also have cheap $11 discount cinema ticket vouchers for each cinema event, and are only available in "very limited quantities" that you can purchase from the event host (organiser) at each screening event, when you arrive early, just for our members to use only at our meetup movie events. PLUS only for those members who have attended three or more SYDNEY FILM BUFFS fully paid events during the last twelve months - (yes T&C apply) - sometimes free entry tickets to brand new releases, as well as sometimes free entry tickets to sneak preview advance-screening events too.
"VERY LIMITED QUANTITIES" means that seven days before each advertised screening event date, SYDNEY FILM BUFFS pre-purchases exactly 100% of the $11 discount cinema ticket vouchers needed for that event, and always based solely on the TOTAL NUMBER of genuine YES RSVPs already received seven days before the event. Of course "VERY LIMITED QUANTITIES" means that we NEVER EVER GUARANTEE to have available, any additional $11 discount cinema ticket vouchers, for everyone who decide to YES-RSVP during the six days before each advertised screening date . . . . . . . . .
So if you love movie films, love Cultural Cinema, love World Art-House Independent Cinema + Foreign Cinema (sub-titled) + Indie Film and/or love Mainstream Hollywood + Australian Cinema in Sydney, plus Premium Special Event Cinema Screenings, plus OPENING NIGHT Screenings, plus Q&A Screenings, AND you would love to join like minded people, then this cinema meetup group is the perfect choice for you. Here is the place for movie lovers to share their love of watching movies PLUS afterwards you can choose to discus the shared experience. Meet new people and enjoy seeing interesting, entertaining or thought provoking movies together. Sydney Film Buffs movie choices are artistically curated by our accredited FCCA film critic, who is tasked to watch and review 300+ brand new movies every year.
We are not film snobs in this group – We are a very friendly and un-cliquey bunch – Just so you know, at any given event usually about a quarter of meetup attendees have never been to any previous event, and have not yet met anyone in the group – and of the others most have only met one or two people who are there. So do not worry about about not knowing anyone at your first event.
At our night-time screenings at the cinemas chosen by SYDNEY FILM BUFFS, you can SAVE MONEY with this Sydney Cinemas meetup group, since you no longer need to pay full price for Standard Adult 2D Admission Prices currently from $19.50 to $21.50 to $23.50 for each ticket. To allow different members to come along, there are varied cinema locations chosen near to the Sydney City Area (some of those cinemas also have free on-site car parking BUT validation required) with early evening screening times selected at these local cinemas - - - 2 Dendy, 4 Palace, HOYTS only at Chatswood / Broadway / Entertainment Qtr (EQ ) , GOLDEN AGE CINEMA, ROSEVILLE CINEMAS, CREMORNE ORPHEUM, Event Cinemas only at George Street & Bondi Junction - - - PLUS selected movies at major film festivals too, including Flickerfest SIFF SUFF JIFF French German Spanish Italian Mexican Korean Japanese Arabic - - -

Our meetup movie group start time, is from fifteen minutes before the cinema's advertised film starting time, and also continues afterwards. Sydney Film Buffs is a very active meetup movie group, and the event hosts (organisers) do try their best to cater for all tastes and in most movie genres. HIGHLY RATED latest new release movie films are chosen, with the cinema screening events at night between 6pm and 7pm, during the first days ( never evenings on Saturdays and public holidays ) PLUS some daytime 1:00pm Saturday $25.00 Premium Special Screening Events at the CREMORNE ORPHEUM. - - - At screenings where the Events Host also states KINGSLEY - - - THEN USUALLY we could meet afterwards to discuss the movie at a local coffee shop, and we are a very friendly bunch of inspired cinema movie fans too. - - -
Of course our future events specify, either "SUGGESTED DATE" or "TIME MAY CHANGE" because our events are often listed many weeks + several months, before the cinema release for each new movie. PLEASE NOTE that cinemas sell tickets on-line for each new movie, only after they begin advertising on their website (late on Wednesday Night) the actual daily screening times for the next week. PLEASE REMEMBER that in Australia, every Thursday Morning is the start of the new "cinema week". N.B. This is a members only meetup mpvie group, so only members can see the selected cinema locations ...
INTERSTELLAR with release date of approx...6th November 2014 - - - "YES this movie film *** does NOT as yet have an Australian Cinema Release Date". - - - Because our organisers are both movie industry insiders, SYDNEY FILM BUFFS frequently advertise important upcoming movie releases, many weeks/months before any cinemas are able to advertise their upcoming movie release dates. All such cinema events will have the important notice that --- "yes the time/day/month may change" - - -
PLEASE REMEMBER that the Australian Film Censorship Board (OFLC) takes up to eight weeks to classify each new movie submitted for classification, before these new release movies are available for Australian Citizens to watch in any Australian Cinema.
- - - PLEASE NOTE THAT this movie film "INTERSTELLAR" did NOT have an Australian Cinema Release Date as at 20 December 2013 - - - so this SYDNEY FILM BUFFS advertised date of "Thursday 6th November 2014" which was only our best estimate, yes indeed could match exactly the announcement of the actual cinema date - - - "yes the time/day/month may change" - - -

SYDNEY FILM BUFFS acknowledges the traditional Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander owners of country, throughout Australia and pays our respects to them, their culture and their Elders past, present and future. E.&O.E. Yes our organizers strive for accuracy, but as humans, we do on occasion make mistakes.
MEETUP disclaimer and the Terms and Conditions for Sydney Film Buffs members
So we can keep this group as enjoyable as possible for everyone there are few conditions we would like our members to be aware of. Most people will find these conditions to be common sense. If any of these conditions seem unfair to you, or you do not agree with them, then Sydney Film Buffs may not be the correct group for you.
Number of people at Events and attendance.
Firstly, you must be 100% committed to attend any meetup event that you have registered to, regardless of the weather conditions. If the weather is considered extreme by the organiser, he or she will change or cancel the event. If you RSVP YES for a meetup event and you cannot attend, please immediately change your RSVP. It is your responsibility to manage your RSVP and RSVP wait lists. If you are in a position where you often change your RSVP YES to "not going", please do not RSVP YES until you are 100% committed to attend. We always monitor all RSVP and RSVP changes, because often we do have wait lists due to the popularity of our meetup events. Hence we may need to remove those repeat offenders from group or particular events. We limit the numbers of participants at some of our meetup events due to logistical issues, in order to better enjoy a particular meetup or in more remote places for safety concerns.
An important note: Guests are bound by the same terms and conditions as members, and it is the member's responsibility to provide the full terms and conditions to any guests included on their RSVP YES.
Health and Safety, Personal Responsibility - Disclaimer
Our activities are recreational and casual. All participants and their guests by choosing to RSVP YES to any event are agreeing to take full responsibility and liability for their own safety and health at all times during the meetup event. Attendees will at no time hold the organiser and/or leader/event host responsible for any accident, misadventure or ill health that may occur whilst attending an event including damage to or loss of equipment/belongings. Children are not permitted to attend meetups unless specified and at the permission of the event host or leader. Each child must be monitored 100% of the time by the parent or parents. Attendees who RSVP YES for an event agree that it is their responsibility to ensure they are fit enough to attend the event and to ensure they have sufficiently researched the activity, and the prevailing weather conditions and warnings in order to make an informed decision whether or not the event is suitable for them.
Important note: This meetup group, its organisers and leaders accept no liability during this meetup event. Leaders will try to ensure the safety and well-being of members at all times, however, accidents may happen. Please take responsibility for your own safety and your belongings.
Our meetups start on time. In most cases we cannot wait for you if you are running late as this sets back our schedule and also keeps a large group waiting, which is unfair to the majority that turn up on time. Please give yourself plenty of extra travel time to allow for the expected Sydney traffic delays and Sydney public transport delays.
There is a one-off administrative fee of $5 cash, to try to cover 2018 meetup group costs, and this is to be paid at the first event that you attend.
Some paid meetups will incur other fees, and those fees will always be clearly indicated. Please check each meetup thoroughly before you RSVP YES. Most of those paid meetups are non-refundable, so please make sure you are 100% committed to attend to avoid disappointment. In most cases, you will be responsible to buy your own ticket in the case of movies, concerts, fund-raisers or such similar events.
Important: Most cafes/restaurants do not allow to split the bill, hence you need to always bring CASH and including LOOSE CHANGE - GOLD COINS to pay for your food/drinks OR your part when we share the food.
Stay on topic
The main purpose or topic of this group is to have fun. Put simply, do activities that makes you laugh and have a good time. This meetup group is not a single-mingle dating group. Some members are, for good reasons, quite annoyed by coming to activities on this group and being picked-up for dating. It is highly recommended that you find another meetup group that is tailored for that specific purpose, where you would be more welcomed and that the members would be in a state of mind, where they are ready to deal with that kind of behavior.
Communication/Publication/Comments on Website
Please remember that our organisers put in a lot of time and effort to make this meetup group as enjoyable and rewarding as possible. If you are unhappy with something, or wish to make a comment on how the group is run, please respect the organisers by communicating with them directly, and not openly in the open forum. This gives them an opportunity to assist you. If there is a problem whilst on a meetup, please contact the leader as soon as possible rather than discuss with other members.
