The Rules of Movie Club

Folks, if we’re going to do this thing, we’re going to do it right. Here are a few ground rules on how Guelph Movie Club is going to work:

Rule 1: There is a Guelph Movie Club--talk about it.

You'll need a ticket. Right now, there are no advanced tickets for the show. So, if you want one, you’ll need to get down to the Bookshelf the evening of movie club. Tickets will go on sale at 7:00. It’s a first come, first served kind of thing. However, a Dinner and a Movie reservation will guarantee you a ticket. It’s a great way to enjoy some delicious grub before a great movie, but spots are limited. Call 519-821-3311 (x155) to make a reservation.

Rule 2: You will be picking the movies.

On movie nights, we’ll give out nomination slips, and anyone who is attending the movie can nominate films for the Guelph Movie Club screening two months from then. We’ll use those nominations to create a short list of films which will be posted online for voting. (Just follow the Bookshelf on Facebook or Twitter for notification of when the list is posted, or become part of the Guelph Movie Club email list by emailing peter[at]bookshelf[dot]ca.) The name of the movie that wins the online poll will be announced at the prior GMC screening.

Rule 3: Other Stuff

We’re still looking for ways to make the experience bigger and better, so stay tuned in the coming months. Your suggestions for things like trivia, contests, and so on are most welcome.

That’s it for now. These rules may change as we go along, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted. Oh, and remember Rule 1: There is a Movie Club, talk about it. You can follow us on Twitter at #guelphmovieclub.

See you at the movies,

- Danny W & Peter

  1. How about licensing the theatre for these movies. Ghostbusters + friends is good. Ghostbusters + friends + beer is awesome.
