Cinema meetups in December and January

  • Jan 15, 2013 · 12:00 PM

It has been the practice of Hollywood studios to release their most prestigious, quality films at the end of the year. 2012 will be no different. In December and early January a significant number of film award (Oscars, Golden Globe) contenders will make their appearance on the silver screen, and the Seattle Cinema Club will be hosting most of these as meetup events. Meetups for the most popular of these new films such as The Hobbit and Les Miserables will be scheduled a few weeks after their national release dates to minimize the risk that the showing we select will be sold out. The less known films will be scheduled shortly after their Seattle release date to reduce the risk of our group not seeing the film because they have a short run.


The following films are scheduled to be hosted by our group along with the organizer's name:


Life of Pi (Greg)

Anna Karenina (Greg)

Hitchcock (Reed)

Hyde Park on Hudson (George)

Promised Land (Claudette)

Barbara (George)

The Impossible (George)

Django Unchained (Don)

The Hobbit (George)

Les Miserables (George)

On the Road (Don)

Rust and Bone (George)

Amour (George)

Not Fade Away (Don)

Zero Dark Thirty (George)


These are 15 films in approximately seven weeks starting December 1. I am sorry that we have to schedule so many films in such a short period of time, but that's the way it goes. And the list does not include any other films that jump out asking to be hosted as a meetup event. The December and January releases will make up for the dearth of quality films from last summer.

      This wasn't a meetup to see a particular film. It was intended to announce the films that would be hosted in the future. Most of them have been posted as meetups.

    I may hold off on my movie meetups until after Jan 1, thinking that the week between Christmas and New Years Day is a tricky one for people's schedules. Anybody want to weigh-in on that?

      I will be out of state from the 24th to the 1st myself. I hope I don't miss any of the ones I REALLY want to watch with you guys: The Hobbit (George), Les Miserables (George), Anna Karenina (Greg) and a few more we haven't watched yet, so..I am with you Don.
