*Bell toll* Hear Ye! Hear Ye! I’m happy to announce the launch of the IGGPPC Cinema Club! I’m super excited to be able to post about this spiffy new club! Some of you have probably already found it over on the forums but with a new month coming, I wanted to get an official post up to let everyone know about the group.

I love movies, I have since I was a little kid. Just like reading a good book, movies provide a much needed escape for me. A good film moves me, stirring up feelings and poking my imagination. It was those thoughts and feelings that created the IGGPPC Cinema Club, so that all of us could share our passion for films.
This is me standing in line at the theater! My boyfriend gets embarrassed.
The concept is simple. Every month we watch a film and have a respectful and open conversation about the film. For January, we watched Metropolis, a 1927 silent film that is considered the original science fiction film. Pretty cool right? We have a great discussion going on in the forums, which you can check out here.
Metropolis. Just reiterating in case you missed it.
Towards the end of the month, we start suggesting movies for the next month. We’ve already started for February. We have a lot of great suggestions! At the end of the month, I’ll tally the votes and announce what we’ll be watching for the following month.
And if your movie doesn’t get chosen for the next month, don’t be discouraged. We have so many great films to choose from, so be sure to suggest your film again in the next round of voting.
We have a great group of people loitering in our forums, so don’t be shy. Introduce yourself and share your movie loves! If you have any thoughts or comments, you can reach me on Twitter where I spend a ridiculous amount of my day. Hope to see you around and may the Schwartz be with you!
**Sorry that the feature image is cut off, I’ve tried resizing in every which way but it still gets cut off. There was only so much to be done before the image got too distorted. If you’re wondering it’s MST3K!**
