- Watch Dune 2 at The Embassy CinemaThe Tasting Room, Wellington
After a hiatus it's back to the movies for the SF & F group. And what better way to start 2024 than with Dune 2?
We will go watch the 3.50pm showing on Sunday 3 March. You can book your tickets at this link. Please book in Row F if you want to sit with the group:
We will meet up at the Tasting Room (across from the Embassy) around 3pm for a nibble, drink and chat before heading over the for the movie.
For those who are keen, we may head back to the Tasting Room for a drink and chat after the movie. This will be around 6.30pm. But, we will play that by ear and see how we go (the movie, like the first one, is about 2 1/2 hours!).
Look forward to seeing you there!
'Qapla! (Oh, sorry, wrong show)
- Sci-Fi / Fantasy Team QuizThe Tasting Room, Wellington
Our sci-fi/fantasy quiz is a fun way for us all to meet up, answer a few sci-fi/fantasy questions in teams, have something to eat and drink (if you like), and chat.
There are usually 4-5 rounds (including a picture round), and we ask quiz masters to cover a wide range of franchises/movies/TV series/books, etc. We'll be keeping score, but the emphasis is on fun!
New group members are more than welcome! Don't worry if you don't feel like you'll be able to answer many questions. There should be some easier ones, and your team mates will help you out anyway. We usually have about 2-3 teams of 4-6 people each. We might ask people to move around teams to make sure there's a good mix of regulars and newbies.
If you're new to the quiz, we suggest you get there nice and early so you can get to know your team mates. People will be around from 3.15pm, the quiz usually kicks off around 3:40pm.
This month, our quiz master is Andrew!
Our quiz masters are group members who put together the quiz on their own time, so please respect them! All answers are final and no correspondence will be entered into. If the quiz master says the sky is red then the sky is $%&#ing RED! If you're interested in doing a quiz, please let an organiser know. We can give you plenty of support to put together a great quiz.
We look forward to seeing you there. It will be a good one! 'Qapla!

Is anybody interested?
