What we're about

Quick Intro:

Do you love movies but you don't want to go alone?

We see movies mostly in Pinellas and Hillsborough at times.

We also socialize over munchies and drinks before and/or after the movie and have occasional non-movie events.

Our events are open to adult walk-ins and adult guests. Guests bringing minors needs prior permission from the events' hosts.

Membership:

We are open to all members of Meetup.com. We don't charge membership Fees at this time.

Event Planning
The Hosting Team, Guests Hosts, and Volunteer Hosts plan meetup events take into consideration:

What's coming out with good buzz.

Requests from Fans' requests.

What's do-able for the Hosts' schedules.

Meeting Up

We meet at designated spots at the different theaters. For consistency, the meeting spots that are usually on the left, as you walk in. We try to wait for our 'Yes' respondents to arrive, then we take our seats.

Go to: Our Meetup Spots (http://movies.meetup.com/304/pages/Meetup_Spots/)

Go to the link on the Site that says "Photos". There is a photo album called "Our Meetup Spots" (http://movies.meetup.com/304/photos/?photoAlbumId=158466&photoId=1997493)
We've posted photos of where we meet at most of the theaters we go to.

After the show, and sometimes before, we decide on a nearby location for our 'After-Movie Social Hour'. It's usually dinner, coffee, drinks or desert.

Thanks for reading this through and, as I said earlier, every Fan can come to the Organizer or the Superbly Awesome Assistant Organizers with questions, requests or concerns.

At Your Service,
Lee
Founding Organizer

The Princess Bride - Free Event

Carrollwood Cultural Center

Healthy snacks and beverages will be provided but feel free to bring your own and a blanket. This event is free so anticipate a large turn out. We'll grab an area to sit down and spread out about 6:25. About the movie: This is a classic and one of my favorites. I try to see it as often as possible. It's a story about true love and the obstacles to a happy ending. There's battles, romance, laughter, and magic. All the necessary elements to a great love story. It helps that the hero and heroine are so attractive. 😂
