Week 1: Once Upon A Time

Welcome new members! Welcome back old members! It’s time to start a shiny new year at SpockSoc! This e-mail’s gonna be kinda lengthy, but I’ll try to keep it down for future ones. Honest. =)

To kick off the year, our first screening for this session is Once Upon A Time. The story is set in the fictional small town of Storybrooke, Maine. The town is populated by characters from fairy tales, who have been exiled to the real world due to a curse cast by the Evil Queen as part of a revenge plot against Snow White and Prince Charming. Because of the curse, most of the inhabitants of Storybrooke have no memory of their true identities and have been stuck timelessly in Storybrooke for years. It’s got Robert Carlyle. Woo!

Our screenings for this session will be in the Chemical Sciences building, theatre M18. The ChemSci building is at grid reference F10 on any campus map – it’s the tall stripy building halfway up the Main Runway from Anzac Parade, with the clock on the western side. M18 is just outside the main entrance, which is on the south side of the building, the side that faces away from the Runway.

Screenings start at 5pm on Fridays, and we’ll show as many episodes as we can fit into the night until we need to leave at 11pm – usually it’s about seven episodes. At about 7pm or so, we’ll start taking orders for pizza for dinner. Pizza costs $5 per half, and you get a can of drink thrown in for free. We’ll also take orders for other things like pasta or garlic bread – prices to be arranged based on the current market rate.

In other news, SpockSoc also has a Facebook group:
As a welcome-back present, we have five free double passes for The Raid to give out. Check out the group page for details.

Lastly, if you ever want off the mailing list, or if I’ve accidentally misspelt an address and gotten someone else by coincidence, the unsubscribe information appears at the bottom of every e-mail.

Hope to see you at the screening!
