CGW is a club for amateurs and professionals who like to make historical, science fiction, or fantasy costumes.

CGW Goes to the Movies

CGW members meet up to go to movies that would be of interest to costumers. You are encouraged to wear a costume if you have one, or join us in your regular clothes. This is a perfect time to try out a new costume or wear something that you’ve “thrown together.” Remember that most of the event is in the dark, so if you don’t feel like you’re quite up to usual costume standards, that’s okay!

The movies will be the price of a movie ticket, and each person will be responsible for purchasing their own ticket. If the movie has reserved seating, contact the liaison to find out what area people are getting seats in. We’ll meet up before the movie for a group photo. There may be a group outing to grab something to eat before or after the movie. The liaison will pick the time and location of the event. Contact CGW Events Coordinator to be a liaison.

Please look at the movie’s rating and the time of day to determine whether this is a child-friendly movie. If your child is too young to sit through an entire movie, please arrange for childcare.
