Roadster diner - City Mall & CINEMACITY, Beirut, Lebanon
Organised by the Online Collaborative in partnership with Empire Cinemas, Roadster diner, Cinemacity and Fiesta, GeekFest Beirut 6.0 – Dinner & Movies is here! Brace yourself for the most special GeekFest yet on October 2nd in CityMall.
Food and movies constitute the cornerstones of what geeks love. Now instead of munching pizza to an illegal torrent on their computer screen we are taking the geeks out for a treat! Here’s how it will go for 450 lucky geeks and geekettes!
We will start it off at 6:00 PM at Roadster diner CityMall
with a virtual food fight, food eating competition, supersized food challenges and much more. Geekfest would not be Geekfest without the Geek Talks - from molecular gastronomy to rare movie facts, our resident geeks have got it covered! And the most special treat of them all is an exclusive avant-premiere for Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2
hosted by CINEMACITY & EMPIRE.
What is GeekFest ?
GeekFest is intended to be an offline social for online people and should be interesting to anyone who's involved in the online world and in using technology to create, educate, entertain, inform, drive change or just play around. It’s a purely social event and is purposefully kept organic, free and easy. Launched in Dubai in 2009, there have, to date (and to our surprise), been GeekFests in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Beirut, Cairo, Alexandria, Damascus, Amman and other Middle Eastern countries. Each one has been different in style and content, reflecting the diversity of our region but also reflecting how the very loosely defined template of GeekFest allows people to do their own thing the way they want to. Each regional GeekFest has happened because someone liked the idea and wanted to give it a try in their community. Nobody owns it, nobody sets rules...Another important Geek Fest tradition is ALL IS FREE for Geeks.
