The Great Gatsby: 7pm

"The Great Gatsby" follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy (Carey Mulligan) and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton). It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.

Great Gatsby : I will be waiting waiting next to Ruby Tuesdays inside the theatre from 6:15 - 6:35 . I will be wearing a red shirt.

We will have food/drinks after at San Antonio.

2 hours 30 minutes.

    Didn't think "Leo" could impress me as Gatsby since I was convinced only Robert Redford could do justice ;-) but I was pleasantly proven wrong! Loved Toby McGuire as Nick as well.

    It was good. I will try to arrive earlier so I can convene with the group instead of trying to find everyone. No one answers...the next spot was posted I just decided to do my own thing...the theatre was nice but for the first time in my life, the projection blacked out like 85% through the movie. They got it back up in like 5 minutes...some people left #crazy
