Join us this Saturday for 'Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets'
maegwen @ 6:30 pm EST

As part of our popular Movie Watch chats, this weekend TORn's IRC gang will be settling in to watch the second of the four Harry Potter films, "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets." We will follow up with "Prisoner of Azkaban" on March 11th, and "Goblet of Fire" on March 25th.

Join us Saturday on our IRC server at 5:30 pm EST when we pop our copies of the film into the DVD player. After the usual confusion, at around 5.30pm EST we'll all press play on our individual players and proceed to cheer and jeer (or discuss and argue, if you like!) the finer points of the film.

We plan to take a break midway through the film, to allow for stretching of fingers and backs. Barliman will be on hand to serve drinks and snacks (and to enforce the house rules).

WHERE?

On TORn's IRC server, in the #moviechat channel. After joining the server, type /join #moviechat to get there.

If you've never been to TORn's IRC server before, you can join through our java applet and type /join #moviechat once you're signed in. We recommend you visit our FAQ for some guidelines on using our IRC service. Barlimanís is a place for good conversation about JRR Tolkienís works. We welcome you to our community and ask that you, and all guests, abide by some simple guidelines.


HOW?

Once everyone is in #moviechat and has their DVD ready to go, the ops will moderate the room and have a countdown to "Play." I expect that we will be able to give minute-markers throughout the evening for latecomers. A break will be taken midway through -- the exact point will be announced in the topic.

That's all, folks! See you this weekend!
