    As always, please watch the movie before the event so you can talk about it!

    Easy to find, though it might be a rental.

    We're based in the Philadelphia area and function exactly like a book club, but only for Sci-Fi Movies and TV series!
    Each month we meet and discuss a specific movie or TV show!
    Discussions are partially led, but also very freeform!
    Our emphasis is on not-too-mainstream science fiction films. In other words, no big Hollywood blockbusters that EVERYONE has seen.

  • Record Store Day at Vinyl Revival (Lansdowne)

    Vinyl Revival

    Vinyl Revival celebrates Record Store Day, the international day to celebrate the culture of the independently owned record store, on April 22, 2023, from 10 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

    Vinyl Revival will stock titles that are Record Store Day Exclusives, RSD First titles, and Small Run/Regional Titles.

    Shoppers can enjoy an in-store performance by Anestis “Andy” Hionides of Three Fourteen from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.

    Receive free Record Store Day promotional merch with a $50 purchase while supplies last.

    Enjoy complimentary light refreshments and drinks.

    Additionally, everyone who makes a purchase will receive a coupon for 20% off a future purchase (some restrictions apply).

    Here’s how the line works:
    There is usually a line so we will let in the first customer in line for 10 minutes of shopping then let in the next person in line, and so on. Doors will open to the general public/walk ups once all of the people in line have had a chance to shop.

    RSD quantities are limited so there is a limit of one copy per title per customer.

    If you’re looking for a specific title, please give us a call at[masked] or email us at [masked] on the Thursday or Friday before RSD and we can let you know if we expect to have what you’re looking to get.

    Check out the list at recordstoreday.com.
    There are so many great releases to choose from, we hope to have your favorites!

  • Beat Takeshi's ZATOICHI - 20th Anniversary Screening (Spring Garden area)

    FB LINK (please go there for tix):

    Join us for a 20th Anniversary screening of cult filmmaker Takeshi Kitano's take on the legendary blind swordsman Zatoichi!

    Kitano (SONATINE, OUTRAGE) writes, directs, and stars in this installment of the wandering swordsman series, the most successful film of his career. With a traditional plot involving Zatoichi protecting innocent townspeople from warring gangs, Kitano injects his presence, humor, and a bit of his style into this bloody, mainstream crowd-pleaser.
