As the LOST phenomenon comes to an end this Sunday, fans around the country are making plans to celebrate the only way they know how: over the top, obsessive, and with other addicts. Facing the reality that this is the last episode ever, fans seem to be seeking out other people who will appreciate it just as much.

Some people are participating in “Lost Meetup Groups” where a host, bar, or lounge posts a space opening on All you do is RSVP, show up and experience all the remaining questions be answered with a big screen TV, a discussion after the show and a solace away from cynics. One such location is the Coffee Table Lounge in Eagle Rock where 62 people have already RSVP’d. Organizer Jim Hughes has been hosting LOST showings all season but this one is attracting a much bigger audience. Other more formal screenings are completely sold out like the LOST finale party at the Orpheum Theatre on Broadway.

But typical for a LOST fan just watching the last episode is not enough. Tonight at 8:00pm you can watch a live conversation between New York Times entertainment editor Lorne Manly and executive producers Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof as they give an inside scoop on the finale. The conversation will be shown in major theaters around the country, including Los Angeles (L.A. Live, Burbank, etc). A list of theaters can be found on this PDF. And on Saturday the Paley Center is hosting a celebration with panel from the cast, trivia games, and screenings of the first and final seasons.
