Mar 16 – SIGGRAPH Screening + Shop Talk @OMSI

As part of our continuing series, screening a film as a group and then meeting up after to gush and discuss over a drink or bite, we bring you Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker!

The holidays proved to be too busy to organize a first run screening of this, but as it makes it’s way to second run theaters, we have the great option of screening at OMSI in the Empirical Theater. Afterwards, we’ll head to OMSI’s VIP space upstairs for free post show drinks and shop talk.

Get your tickets online here: (ticket link coming as soon as the film is live in OMSI’s system)

And if you could also sign up for the free post-show meetup here:
https://siggraphscreening2.eventbrite.com
…we’re only using Eventbrite in this case to help track our numbers (separately from any general public ticket sales, which is all OMSI sales figures would give us), and to make sure our beverage and seating needs are met. If it’s a game time decision for you, don’t worry about registering on Eventbrite – all should be fine and a ticket is not required to attend the casual post screening meetup.

Note that the film running time is 2:22, so if you have already seen it and are skipping the screening and only coming to the meetup, aim for (insert time here once screening time is announced).

It’s our goal to try to assemble a screening and meetup like this for the larger or more groundbreaking films in the VFX/3D/Animation space, and usually it will be a few weeks after release so as not to interfere with any opening week plans with friends or family.
