What is a Grotto? By definition, it is a cave surrounded by water. But, this is not the Grotto your geography teacher told you about. Instead, we are a group of Master Masons that meet on the level for the purpose of fellowship. It’s really as simple as that.
Cinema Grotto has been going strong since 1945. Even after over 70-years as an established Masonic organization, Cinema Grotto has continued to welcome Master Masons on a monthly basis.
Our meetings are held on the 3rd Friday of every month. At 7:30 pm on these nights, you can find us at our home away from home, Old West Masonic Lodge in Newhall, California.
Please feel free to take a stroll through our website, and check out our upcoming events. If you wish to join our band of fellowship attend any of our events, click on the Contact tab and let us know!
What a great Ceremonial we had last month! We got great feedback from our newest Prophets as they engaged in the impish delight of the Grotto and our collective laughter echoed throughout the Enchanted Realm. Good fellowship was had by all!
My favorite part of the day was sharing laughs with our newest members as we hung out in the parking lot and made memories through the ceremonial. We are here to have fun and enjoy spending time with one another. The Ceremonial provided an opportunity for just that!
If you have any ideas for ways that you think we can increase the fun and goodfellowship at Cinema Grotto, email me at email@example.com.
This is your Grotto. Make it awesome!
Spring: a time of rebirth, merriment, flowery things and . . . The SPRING CEREMONIAL!
On Friday, April 20th we will have a shortened stated meeting followed by rehearsal for our Ceremonial. If you have a role (or would like a role) in the Grotto Ceremonial please be there.
Our Ceremonial will take place on April 28th. The plan is for us to rehearse at the stated meeting and on the day of the ceremonial with no additional days, but this can only work if you show up for the rehearsal. Please don’t miss it.
You still have time to find the most fun loving Masons you know and get a petition in their hand so they can enter the Enchanted Realm on April 28th.
Please shoot me an email confirming that you will be at rehearsal so we can plan accordingly.
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what makes Cinema Grotto special.
It’s hard to put a finger on what makes our Realm so Enchanted, but there is one thing we offer to our Prophets that is unlike anything else in the Masonic world: our Ceremonial.
As you know, we awoke the Ceremonial from hibernation in October and the Fellowship has been growing ever since! Our last meeting was very well attended and I’m really getting a sense of increased activity in our Grotto. Hooray!
I’d like to get as many Prophets involved in our April Ceremonial as possible. We need actors for both speaking and non-speaking parts, a sound operator and a light operator. If you like having fun and want to be a part of welcoming Prophets into the Enchanted Realm, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
There is no limit to how many Prophets can be involved in our Ceremonial. As always, the more Prophets, the merrier!
If you know a Brother that loves Fun and Fellowship, let him know about Cinema Grotto, give him a petition, and let the good times roll!
Grotto on, Prophets!
