The Grand Budapest Hotel @ Angelika in Merrifield

Synopsis: "Wes Anderson production starring Saoirse Ronan, Ralph Fiennes, Bill Murray, and Jude Law. Gustav H., the famous concierge at a legendary hotel situated in the Alps during the 1930's becomes the center of a farcical whirlwind of suspicion when one of his institution's oldest and richest patrons turns up dead, and she suspiciously leaves him her most priceless work of art -- a Renaissance painting of a boy with an apple. Infuriated that she left anything of value to anyone else, the woman's greedy and nefarious heir uses all manner of underhanded and illegal tactics to pin her death on Gustav and to silence anyone who questions his objective of inheriting every penny of her estate, leaving Gustav's trusted lobby boy Zero to clear Gustav's name and prove that the grand lady's killer is none other than her own son. ~ Jeremy Wheeler" 


****UPDATE DETAILS ON DINNER - PLEASE READ****

WE WILL MEET DOWNSTAIRS IN THE LOBBY OF THE THEATER AFTER THE MOVIE AND CAN WALK OVER TO MATCHBOX TOGETHER SINCE BY THEN WE WILL HAVE A FINAL COUNT. I'LL BE STOPPING BY THERE BEFORE THE MOVIE TO PUT US ON THE EARLY WAIT LIST. 

AFTER THE MOVIE IS OVER, I'LL STAND BY THE COUNTER AND STOOLS NEAR THE ENTRANCE TO THE THEATER ON THE GROUND LEVEL TO WAIT FOR EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO GO TO DINNER.

Matchbox has just changed their policy and as of last week no longer takes dinner reservations between 5:30 and 9:30, their rationale is that they are doing it to accommodate walk-ins (??), BUT I will be going there before the movie to do a "call ahead", this new policy is totally bizarre and makes no sense to me whatsoever!!

Also, they are now telling me that the largest group they can accommodate is 12 at one table.

PLEASE update your RSVP if you do not plan to attend the dinner.

    For those who were at my table Saturday night, it is not an app that notifies people if you are in danger, it's a new jewelry line! (that connects to your phone) Check it out - https://www.cuff.io/
