If you’ve ever wanted to see a movie but didn’t want to go alone, here’s the solution. Join a movie group to watch movies at home or at a theatre.
Each month members of both these groups choose a movie and arrange a lunch at a restaurant beforehand.
Meets on the 2nd Tuesday afternoon of the month. Lunch is often at Milestones, followed by a movie at the Queensway Cineplex. Two different members of the group take turns choosing the movie each month.

There’s more to come this year starting with the Music of John Williams, a TSO Pops matinee, on October 4th. Contact Lee Fullerton if you would like a ticket ($40).
