View Full Version : MTS Summer Movie Night

13th Jun 2018, 10:07 PM
Hello, MTSers! It's everyone's favourite time again...time for a community movie night!

In a couple of weekends we're hosting a live movie watching party in our Discord text chat server. We're hoping this will be a great chance for everyone to meet new people, get to know our chat system (if it's your first time), and also watch some really fun movies. This time up we've got wonderful wizardly lineup!

The movies

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
Before Harry and the gang were busily conquering the forces of evil at the tender age of 11, Newt Scamander was busily causing chaos in New York City! After a merry mishap involving a misplaced Niffler, Newt finds himself embroiled in a magical conspiracy, making friends along the way and causing the aforementioned chaos. Hijinks! Magic! Eddie Redmayne! What more could a person want?

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone
First off, let's get something straight. It's Philosopher's Stone. Sorcerer? Never heard of him. I will never waver on this point. Now then, back to how the HPCU (Harry Potter Cinematic Universe) began! Wee ittle babby wizards! Do I really have to explain the plot of this one to people? C'mon. Boy wizard doesn't realize he's a wizard until giant man breaks into his family cottage and brains his uncle with an umbrella. Things progress logically from there. Hijinks! Magic! Oh my God those kids look so young!

Where & When

Saturday, June 23rd
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 133 minutes long - 6 PM UTC / 8 PM CEST / 2 PM EDT | Time Zone Converter (https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=Fantastic+Beasts&iso=20180623T18&p1=%3A&ah=1&am=15)

The chatting will take place in our Discord server, which you can join here (http://simswiki.info/MTS2:Chat). On the day of the watch party we will create a "Movie Night" channel dedicated to this event, so make sure to choose it from the Text Channel options.

New - if you would like to be pinged in Discord when the movies are about to start, please visit the discord and leave a comment in the movie_night channel. I will put you on a list to be notified via Discord when the movies are getting close.

How it works

First thing's first: Everyone needs to find their own copy of the movies. Due to legal reasons, we cannot offer to stream them.

We'll be getting everyone synced up by doing a text countdown in chat. For this reason, please show up at least a few minutes early, to ensure we all start at the same time. :) If you arrive after we've started, you'll have to figure out the sync for yourself.

Can you ask what minute everyone else is at if you arrive late? A few seconds mismatch shouldn't affect the event too much.

Absolutely! Latecomers are welcome to join in whenever they arrive. :)
