This movie is based on the Shakespeare play, and is (obviously) not a science fiction movie. I'm cross posting it here from the Western MA Movie Meetup because it's written (adapted screenplay) and directed by Joss Whedon. A bunch of Whedon regulars from Firefly, The Avengers, Angel/Buffy, Dollhouse, Cabin in the Woods show up or star, so I thought there might be some interest.
We will be going to the 7:20pm show.
Meet at Cinemark in the Hampshire Mall at 7:00pm in front of the inside entrance to Arizona Pizza, which is across from the Cinemark ticket kiosk.
Tuesday is discount day at Cinemark, so tickets will be $5.75.
