Studio Chapter Meeting Update & More!

Today we have information on our March get-together and some other updates for you. First up is our March get-together on Saturday March 17th. We’ll be meeting up at Downtown Disney to see ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ with lunch afterwards at either Rainforest CafĂ© or ESPN Zone. We don’t have the exact show times yet but we’ll catch the first showing which is usually between 10 and 11 AM which would make lunch around 12:30 to 1:30 PM. We do not plan to go into the parks as a group so for those who don’t have AP’s--no worries. We can also arrange carpools with AP’s to avoid parking fees. Just let us know! As soon as they post show times we’ll send an update.
Next we have a few meeting and other activities for your calendar.

UPDATE 03/14/18:
Show Time for A Wrinkle in Time at AMC Downtown Disney this Saturday is 10:45 AM so we will keep our meet up time at 10 – 10:15 AM at AMC. Please allow time for parking, etc. For those who asked this is not a 3D showing. If you’re coming only for lunch please meet at the AMC around 1 PM. The movie should be done around that time give or take 15 min. We can decide as a group whether to eat at Rainforest or ESPN Zone. (We are opting for either of these as they will be torn down once hotel construction starts in a couple of years.) Don’t forget your umbrella! 

Upcoming Studio Chapter Meetings:
May Meeting – Hasn’t been determined yet but will most likely be Saturday May 19th.
July Meeting – Saturday July 21st. We’ll have a meeting and dinner at Coco’s in Arcadia then head over to the Arcadia Heritage Museum for movie night and a talk about the movie by chapter member and film historian Annick Downhower. (Movie is to be determined but always has a connection to or was partially filmed in the Arcadia area—often with some Disney connections too.)
