Star Trek Into Darkness and post-movie discussion

You know you want to see it opening weekend. Why not see it with a gang of fellow Trek geeks?

Get tickets for the 7:30 Digital 3D showing. Please meet outside the theater by 6:45 so we can go in and sit together. Be sure to buy your tickets online in advance.

Then afterwards we can grab some food and drinks at Baby Acapulco across the street and argue what they got right and wrong about the movie. Like, did they really use Khan or not? Does every Trek movie have to be about a big bad guy seeking vengeance? What happened to exploring strange new worlds, seeking out new life and new civilizations, and boldly going where no man has gone before?

See you there. Live long and prosper.

    Loved the first 3/4 of it.

      Agreed. They lost me at the end, when it turned into too much of a fan homage to past movies. Up until then, it was awesome.

      Yes, I enjoyed it, lots of fun, and well, it is Star Trek! But I felt they really didn't have anything new to say, so I didn't take much away with me.

    What an awesome turnout and great conversation at Baby A's. Thanks everybody!

      Aww man forgot about the meeting at Baby A's afterword... oh well.

      Wish we could have made it to Baby A's, but we had a dog waiting for us at home. Anyway, the movie was awesome, non-stop action.

    Great movie and SWAGs. Thanks for organizing, Jeff!

    Pretty good, everyone seemed quite nice. I'm a bit old fashioned so I tried to introduce myself to as many people as I could without seeming odd to myself. However the discussion we had before wasn't as in depth as I thought it might be however I did enjoy myself. Was a bit worried that I might be outclassed since I do enjoy Star Trek and have a bit of knowledge about it... but I wouldn't call myself a TREKy when compared to some others I know.

    I came to the film but don't see the group. Are we still going to Baby Acapulco?

    May 17, 2013

    I've been awake since 3am. I don't think I'm going to be able to keep myself from sleeping through the movie. :(

    Hi all :)

    Here is another option to enjoy this movie in case Friday doesn't work out 'cause of the timing or the money.

    You'll need to look on the left side of the main page to see the meetup information (as of right now). Until three people RSVP, the meetup won't appear on the main page. You'll see it under my name or Manish Chacko.

    Here's the alternate plan:

    Watch the movie at the Slaughter Lane Alamo on Sunday at 1:15 PM. Tickets are $7.50-lets meet at 12:45 and get our tickets together-theater should be empty at noon on Sunday.

    Have an amazing day!

  • Manish C.

    I'm planning on watching this at the Slaughter Lane Alamo on Sunday for $7.50-I will suggest a meetup for this on this group. Thanks for the suggestion Darlene.

    May 14, 2013

    • Daniel R.

      That would be kool, wish there were more meetup groups that did things on the South side of Austin... everything always seems to be quite a drive north haha.

      May 15, 2013

  • Benjamin H.

    got mine - reald3d at 7:30 right? Not sure if that's what digital 3D meant

    April 24, 2013

    • Johann

      Yup, that's the one

      April 24, 2013

    • Daniel R.

      yeah I only saw one 7:30 so assumed that was it as well.

      May 15, 2013

  • Johann

    Guys, I am willing to consider the Alamo and/or IMAX screenings for the future. However, since we do have a number of students and others with tight disposable income, I also want to keep our events as affordable as possible for all. This seems like a good compromise. Your thoughts?

      so, honestly, that's what I'm gonna do for this movie -- gonna get a early Sat show time in S. Austin -- sorry! I just can't spend that much for tickets

      I'm with ya Darlene-I'm planning on watching this at the Slaughter Lane Alamo on Sunday for $7.50.

    Good news everyone! The studio has sent me a box of swag to give out to our members on Friday. I have Star Trek t-shirts, baseball caps, hoodies, posters, even knuckle tattoos (yes, knuckle tattoos) to give out to the first members there before 6:45 Friday. See you then!

    Hey all! Only a few more days!

    Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman had better write an absolute master piece to justify destroying planet Vulcan.

    Is that the place?

    Fandango has SO MANY different places to choose from...

    May 7, 2013

    • Johann

      Yep, there is only one Regal Gateway 16 in town. That's it!

    I checked and tickets are on sale but im really confused as to which theater to buy tickets.

    April 23, 2013

    • Johann

      Fandango has them

      April 23, 2013

    • Sarah M.

      Sweet! Bought my ticket.

      April 23, 2013

  • Jodin

    Speaking of upcoming sci-fi movies, I kind of hope this happens with the new Star Wars: http://youtu.be/5BBhNkywMJY

    April 21, 2013

  • Thomas F.

    I'll be requesting the day off work. That's about what I can do. It's pretty far ahead of time. So, I should probably be alright.

    April 16, 2013

  • Susan

    I agree on being inclusive. Since it is Meetup, I'm signed on because it's social. Seeing the film together is more important to me personally than seeing it in a particular format or at my favorite venue.

    April 16, 2013

  • Marco

    IMAX!

    April 16, 2013

  • Manish C.

    Alamo anybody? No screaming kids or people talking :)

    April 15, 2013

    • Johann

      Now that the Alamo is doing reserved seating, it would be nearly impossible to get seats together.

      April 16, 2013

  • Benjamin H.

    sounds like fun
