Announcing Triangle Classic Movie Club: TCMC

Join Us in TCMC! was founded a year ago to share our love of classic movies with other fans. Over the past 12 months we have enjoyed writing about some of our favorite films as well as what we call new classic discoveries – old films that were new to us.

Through this site and opportunities offered to us by TCM, we have met classic film lovers in our region. With them we have built a community of friends with whom we have attended showings of TCM Big Screen Classics at one of our local theaters and with whom we have gathered socially to share our combined appreciation of classic films.

As we head into our second year as the Classic Couple, Chris and I are looking forward to continuing these friendships in a new group – the Triangle Classic Movie Club. We hope the community we have established in the Triangle area of North Carolina will choose to continue to get together around our mutual love of classic movies.

Looking forward to sharing what we get up to here. Let’s Movie!

    • Always glad to meet local TCM and classic film fans! TCM Club President Chris will be in touch via email.

  3. Hi, Chris and Kami. We found your site through Linda Maultsby, one of your members who is also on our mailing list. We been showing classic films in Hillsborough for the last year and a half; nothing so professional as your undertaking, but apparently much appreciated in this small town. We’d love to join your group. How do we sign up? And we’d like to give your group a plug. We’re showing “Rashomon” today, and we’ll mention it.

    My dad is an avid TCM movie lover and movie buff and is 89 years old living in Santa Rosa, CA

    Would this be a good sight for him to sign up?

    • Hi Deborah! Thanks for reaching out to us. We welcome all classic movie fans, especially fans of TCM, to visit our site and engage with us here. So, do encourage your dad to visit us at this site for content he might enjoy – no sign-up required. If he’s interested in joining a local club of TCM fans, let us know. There are some in California that are connected to TCM that we can recommend. Just reach back out if that is of interest, and we can help make introductions.
