Short Notice (Saturday): "Margin Call", Kevin Spacey, Demi Moore, Jeremy Irons

Set in the high-stakes world of the financial industry, Margin Call is an entangling thriller involving the key players at an investment firm [loosely modeled on Lehman Brothers] during one perilous 24-hour period in the early stages of the 2008 financial crisis. When an entry-level analyst unlocks information that could prove to be the downfall of the firm, a roller-coaster ride ensues as decisions both financial and moral catapult the lives of all involved to the brink of disaster. Writer/director J.C. Chandor's enthralling first feature is a stark and bravely authentic portrayal of the financial industry and its denizens as they confront the decisions that shape our global future. -- (C) Roadside Attractions

Locations and Schedule

6:15 pm - 6:30 pm
- Meet at the Apex Lido Cinema, Rama I Road, Siam Square, Tel. 02-252-6498.  This is a 3 minute walk from the BTS Skytrain Siam station.  (See directions below.)

6:30 pm - 8:15 pm
- The movie, "Margin Call" at the Apex Lido Cinema.  We will buy the tickets together so the group can sit together.  Tickets are only 100 baht per person. Runtime is 1 hour and 47 minutes.

8:30 pm - 9:30 pm - at True Life / True Coffee (see directions below): "Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down" - a vote and 10 minute discussion of the movie.  Why did we like or not like the movie? Also: coffee, snacks, and conversation.

True Life / True Coffee (old branch) is on the corner of Siam Square Soi 3 (one block off Rama 1 Road), not to be confused with the two newer True Coffee branches in Siam Square.  (Yes, there are now THREE True Coffee branches in Siam Square.)  Please read the detailed directions below so you don't end up at the wrong True Coffee branch.

You can attend the coffee hour and/or the movie.  You don't have to be at both.


Directions


(1) Leave the BTS Skytrain Siam (Central) Station at Exit 2. (If you're not arriving by Skytrain and you're walking under the Skytrain station towards MBK, pass by True Coffee and the Apple Shop in the building called "Digital Gateway.")

(2) When you reach the bottom of the stairs, do a "U-turn" to head in the opposite direction past True Coffee and the Apple Shop in the building called "Digital Gateway."

(3) When you reach the cross street, you are at Siam Square Soi 3.  Keep walking straight ahead and in 1 minute, you will see the Apex Lido Cinema.  Go upstairs to meet us in front of the box office, where I will buy tickets for the group so we can sit together.
