Re: Connecticut meetup?

People are welcome to show up after 6pm. Theoretically the movie starts between 6:30-7pm, but it varies depending on who has shown up, if we are waiting for someone, discussions about where to order food, and general BSing.

Re: Connecticut meetup?

It isn't during your weekend, but we're still doing the Car Chase Movie Night every other Wednesday in West Hartford.

This week is either Death Race or Transporter3. Either one will have Jason Stathem, fast cars, bad acting and terrible scripts. Come for the explosions, stay for the mockery.
