Greetings! My colleague/partner and I have just begun a TCM Backlot chapter in Silicon Valley with the intention of serving Backlot members between San Jose and Palo Alto (Peninsula and South Bay). We welcome any Bay Area members who are interested in events at the Stanford Theater or Niles Silent Film Museum, as we will be highlighting those venues in our detailed newsletter (which also features thorough notes about TCM's broadcast schedule) and planning regular outings for the group. We opted to become co-presidents of this new chapter after years of experience running another film-related organization with hundreds in of members in the San Jose/Campbell/LG area. Both of us have taught film history, film production and film theory at SJSU and DeAnza, among other local institutions. If you are a Backlot member (or planning to join), please contact us to get on our newsletter or be invited to upcoming events: email@example.com We look forward to meeting you! Best, Alejandro Adams & Sara Vizcarrondo TCM Backlot Silicon Valley
Greetings! My name is Jennifer (screen name here is Auriane) and I am looking for TCM Backlot members in the San Francisco Bay Area to join me in starting the TCM Backlot Local Chapter here. I've been a classic movie watcher really since TCM began. In the 90's I'd plop myself down on my couch on Sunday mornings with a bowl of my favorite cereal and watch all morning. It was a tradition that continues to this day. I love the programming and especially all of the great information, interviews and host introductions to the films. So becoming a backlot member and starting a local chapter seems like a great fit for me - something that I'm pretty passionate about. If you're interested in being a part of the San Francisco Bay Area Chapter of TCM Backlot and you're a member of TCM Backlot please visit www.tcmbacklotsfchapter.com and sign up. As soon as we have 5 verified members we'll be a recognized chapter here on TCM. If you're not a member of TCM Backlot I recommend that you become one. It's a great fan club and has lots of fun perks! Plus, if we have a local chapter we can enjoy extra benefits like: -Free tickets each month to screenings of TCM Big Screen Classics (starting in June) -One Chapter per month will be featured on the TCM Backlot site -Local Chapters have the opportunity to win a viewing party for its members, courtesy of TCM -If there are TCM events in your area, the Local Chapter(s) will receive advance notice and opportunities to participate -Prizes and recognition for the largest and most active Chapters So join today and then head on over to www.tcmbacklotsfchapter.com to become a member of the local San Francisco Bay Area TCM Backlot Chapter. Looking forward to hearing from you! Jennifer Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

TCM Backlot Local San Francisco Bay Area Chapter is excited to welcome our members to our inaugural event.

Please join in for dinner and the movie and drinks following – any or all of those activities. I’m so excited that we’ll be watching Casablanca as our inaugural classic film viewing together. It’s a favorite of mine and always a great film to spark some fun conversation. Upcoming Enhancements to our website! There are several very recent developments in our local chapter including: Our website boasts a new "Discussion Forum" where we as a group can effectively communicate, plan and initiate classic film related events and outings. We now have a “Member Spotlight” section of the website to highlight members of our local chapter including short videos and copy that highlight their unique brand of classic movie fandom. I plan to coordinate with members that will be attending the TCM Classic Film Festival and to partner with them to post their videos and photos in (very close to) real time to keep all of the local chapter members informed on the latest from our members at the festival. The future of our local chapter is very bright! As things progress, I’ll be sending out periodic emails to keep members up to date on all the latest activities and improvements as they occur. When you become a member, if you have any ideas for our chapter I welcome them! I so enjoy getting to know all of the members and the unique perspectives that they bring to the group. It’s been a fabulous unfolding so far and I’m excited at what the future holds for us. Sign up today! Here
I am looking to pull together and lead a local chapter of TCM Backlot in the South Bay area of San Francisco, CA. I live in Santa Cruz. Interested members should live somewhere in the Central Valley or South Bay Area. We need 5 total members to become an official group and reap the benefits.
