It is a fun and rewarding experience, take it from me I caught the bug over 5 years ago now and have never looked back.
Watching a film alone can be a deeply emotional experience. Watching a film together the experience is shared and in many ways more meaningful. As a group who watch a film together we now have this shared experience in common. Through this common ground we can develop strong bonds and friendships which may carry us through our lives
