Washington DC / MD / VA

Hey Filmspotting East,

Back on message boards for first time in 1-2 years.  Curious if there are any other Wash DC area folks on here?

Hey there!

I'm brand new to the forum and pretty new to the podcast, but I am in the Baltimore area. I resorted to posting a craigslist ad a couple weeks ago asking if anyone would be interested in forming a film group or club. Mostly crickets  :-\ I moved away for 10 years and when I came back, my fellow film nerds had dispersed across the country.

Hey Samwambam,

I live in Silver Spring, so just north of Wash DC and real close to Baltimore.  There's a LOT of Filmspotting listeners in this area, as the affectionate "Filmspotting East" title has been given to the Arlington/DC area, but somehow things never seem to coalesce into an actual meetup, as far as I know at least.

Let's stay in touch and see if we can drum up some support and see if others trickle into this thread.  Would be great to get a group of 10-15 to hangout some night.

Hey Slacker,

Glad to hear there's a fellow Silver Spring filmspotter!  Do you know anyone else in our area?  I know there's a bunch from Damascus and Olney.

DC resident here. I'm kinda jealous of you Silver Spring folks for having the AFI theater and cheaper rent.

DarkCrystal,

yeah sorry totally forgot I actually posted in this thread, heh.

but no I don't know any Filmspotting fans around here at all.  I only just discovered this podcast a few months ago.

AFI is cool.  There are some good theaters in DC though, and they seem to be better at showing the limited release arthouse/independent type films.  AFI seems to be a little slow to get on board with those sort of films, but there are a lot of other reasons to see movies there.

Hey there, my name is Timmy and I am a brand-new resident to Rosslyn, Arlington. I am planning on attending the 5:20 screening of The Red Turtle at Landmark E-Street Cinema if anyone else wants to join.
