Single Status Update
I am so excited to say that we are now 70 members strong and growing! Below is a link you can follow to see the latest news from our chapter.
You'll note that we have a shared file for members to use so that they can drop their photos and videos in it and I can post them on twitter and our website in (close to) REAL TIME! I can't wait to see all that our members have to share with us. If I can, I'll share the photos and video here but if I can't you can always find them on our website www.tcmbacklotsfchapter.com. I so wish that I had been able to head out to the Film Festival but I blew my travel budget on my trip to India. I just got back and it was a fabulous time but next year I plan on being at the Festival, for sure!
A big SHOUT OUT to Louie Jordan the president of the Des Moines chapter. He created a nice facebook page for all of the local chapter Backlot members. You can find that here.
There's been lots of chatter on our Twitter feed @tcmbacklotsf so get in on the fun - follow us and I'll follow you back.
I had a fun conversation with our Chicago and Portland Chapters. TCM Members are the BEST! I plan to head out to visit all the different chapter locations and try to coordinate my visit with one of their events. I just love getting to know everyone and sharing our love for classic film.
I have included posting here as part of my Prez duties so I won't be so quiet from here on.
Hello. I just discovered the TCM message boards, and signed up, this morning (May 9).
I live in San Francisco, and would like to hear more about the group.
Because this is only my introduction to this board, I won't activate the "confused" icon, yet. But, I'm not sure how to proceed. I'll check back to see if there's clarification and guidance. ?
Hi there! Great to have you here. I did get your email and I'll reach out to you there. I'm glad that you found this board! Backlot is such a great feature of TCM and I'm so excited about it. Getting to enjoy Classic Film on the big screen with other enthusiasts is just one of the great things we enjoy as members but it's a BIG one. I hope you can join us tomorrow at Sunset Boulevard. We're meeting up at 6pm at AMC Van Ness (1000). The show starts at 7pm.
You can learn all about us at www.tcmbacklotsfchapter.com. It's there where you can RSVP to events, see photos and videos from past events, get to know your fellow members on GabFest!, and learn about upcoming contests and event announcements as they happen.
I'm working with TCM to hopefully offer our members the opportunity to meet at a large venue and enjoy food and drink together as we screen a classic film. I'll keep everyone up to date on my progress on the website.
I'm glad you reached out and pleased to be able to count you among our ranks. I hope we get to meet very soon.
Let's movie San Francisco!
