Hi all, we have some great news! Thanks to the hard work of our pool Administrators (and additional thanks to our site testers) we have re-introduced the feature where your picks can be made directly on the website. Exciting! 

Entry into the Summer Movie Pool will be invite-only, so if you wish to play this year and have not yet received a confirmation email from the site, contact us at summermoviepool@gmail.com so that we can get your account set up. 

All 2023 SMP players have already had their User accounts generated, and direct emails from the site were sent identifying their personal Username along with a weblink to access and set up their own password. This email came from summermoviepool@gmail.com and is titled [Summer Movie Pool] Login Details, so be sure to check your Spam folder if you do not see it in your Inbox.

Below are the directions to access your account, set your password and access the Pick Movies page. For those that already submitted their Top 10 picks via email as previously directed, you will want to take this opportunity to enter them directly into the site.

Should you need any assistance with your account, or if you identify a discrepancy with the listed movies (missing, incorrect release date, etc.) please feel free to contact us at summermoviepool@gmail.com so that we can help as needed.

Just remember that the only way to play is to be registered on the website, and the deadline to make your picks is Wednesday 5/1 at 11:59pm PDT. Enjoy!
