Outlandish Boston is a regional group of fans for Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series–as well as the Starz TV series. Though the majority of our members are from New England, we do have active participants from New York, New Jersey and northeast Canada, as well as fans from across the globe.
Much of our activity and group conversation occurs on our Facebook Group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/OutlandishBoston/
You are welcome to send an add request to the group if you are a Facebook user. You may also follow us on twitter at twitter.com/OutlandishBos
As a group, we get together fairly often. We have a few upcoming meet-ups planned:
July 24, 2014 – We have a private screening of Emulsion, an independent directed by Suki Singh and starring Outlander’s Sam Heughan. The screening is crowd-funded via Tugg and you are welcome to purchase an advance ticket at http://www.tugg.com/events/10091 The screening will be held at 6:30PM at the AMC Theater in Framingham. If we do not sell the minimum number of tickets, the screening will be cancelled. We’d love to see you there–please bring a friend! We could really use the ticket sales, and we love to meet new Outlander fans! (In case you don’t know who Sam Heughan is yet, he is the Scottish actor who is bringing the character of Jamie Fraser to life in Starz Outlander TV series.)
August 10, 2014, 5PM – We will be meeting at The Haven, JP (2 Perkins Street, Jamaica Plain/Boston), Boston’s only Scottish restaurant, to do a group viewing of the first TV episode of Outlander. The show airs the night before on the Starz channel, which is a premium cable station. For those that do not subscribe to Starz, this will be an opportunity to see it at The Haven. We opted not to have a premier viewing party because most of our members felt strongly that they wished to be able to watch the show for the first time, home alone, where they wouldn’t miss anything. But we also agreed that we’d love to get together, have some drinks and enjoy some Scottish fare at our favorite group hangout.
We hosted a very large group Gathering May 2-4, 2014 which included 115 fans from all across North America. We had such a great time, we are organizing a 2nd Annual North American Outlandish Gathering 2-7 August, 2015 in Montreal & Quebec City.
