Next Meetup

Movie double feature plus food - Part 1: Lucy
• What we'll do I was looking up showtimes for Black Panther and saw that Landmark Cinemas is showing Lucy as well. It's a tie between Lucy and Angel-A for my second favourite Luc Besson Film, so thought I'd post it and see if anyone is interested in joining me. See the bit below for a quick synopsis if you haven't heard about it. After the movie, stick around for lunch and great company at Finn McCool's before the 3D showing of Black Panther at 4, also at the City Centre Cinema. From LA FEMME NIKITA and THE PROFESSIONAL to THE FIFTH ELEMENT, writer/director Luc Besson has created some of the toughest, most memorable female action heroes in cinematic history. Now, Besson directs Scarlett Johansson in LUCY, an action-thriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic. • What to bring • Important to know

Our group will meet to go on sci-fi field trips, talk sci-fi, watch sci-fi, read sci-fi, if we could get us some good tauntaun steaks then we'd EAT sci-fi too! We might even throw in some comics or fantasy if you're into that sort of thing. Come out and play, we'd love to meet you!

A little info about the day-to-day business of Nerd Group:

There are no membership fees for this group. We try to keep things as low cost (and therefore as inclusive) as possible.

We strive to be inclusive, so feel free to bring guests to the meets, and remember to keep an open mind!

We are all folks who like science fiction but that doesn't mean we are experts, or expect you to be. We welcome newbies to science fiction as well as pros.

We have members of all ages. I'm in my early 30's but we have older and younger nerds so don't worry, you'll fit right in.

We like building ties in the sci-fi/fantasy/pop culture community. If you are a meetup organizer from another group who would like to do a joint event, or be involved in anything we're planning, send me an email and we'll work out the details.

If you have an idea for an event, send me an email. Please add times/dates that would be convenient for you and I'll schedule them if there's enough interest or set you up as coordinator for the event so you can run it as you wish.
