Movie Night occurs most every Friday Night, with a group pizza order (~$7) placed around 7:30 PM and then a movie or two (or three) played while people ignore the movie and work on a project, or ignore their projects and watch a movie. In addition to the Tuesday open meetings, Friday nights are a good time for non-members to know the space will be open.
