Join us for the next edition of our film + cuddles series, featuring Guillermo del Toro's latest film "The Shape of Water".

We'll have a screening room, lots of watermelon, and other refreshments for guests. We have even more pillows this time and plenty of blankets and squish, so feel free to bring your onesies and favorite cuddle friends! Tickets are limited to 25 people.

This event is intended to be a safe space for platonic touch, an opportunity to come together with friends and watch heartwarming films while snuggled up in a cozy room full of fluff. We are creating a loving, inclusive atmosphere where all should feel welcome and have their boundaries respected. To encourage this environment, we ask that you follow this code of conduct:

- Respect people's boundaries. Ask for enthusiastic consent before engaging in any physical touch. Be respectful when saying "no", be respectful when hearing "no".
- Absolutely no play/intimate touching. We want people to feel comfortable receiving platonic touch without any questioning or expectation that it could turn into more. There are plenty of other events to meet people for those activities, so we kindly ask that you keep this a safe space.
- No shoes/food/drinks in the cuddle room

Schedule: Doors @ 7:30pm; Film Screening 8-10pm
