(RESCHEDULED) 8/31 Blackfish Movie Screening

Hi Everyone!  WE HAVE RESCHEDULED FOR SATURDAY 8/31 AT 2PM!!!   Join us for the opening night of Blackfish at the Terrace Theater!   

We will meet outside 15 minutes before the movie starts.  Please look into purchasing tickets ahead of time.  I'm not sure how large the theater is.

If you cannot make the Meetup, here are some other times to attend:

Showtimes for BLACKFISH are as follows: 

Friday, August 30 - Thursday, September 5: 12:40, 2:20, 7:10, 8:50

From the official film site http://blackfishmovie.com

Blackfish tells the story of Tilikum, a performing killer whale that killed several people while in captivity. Along the way, director-producer Gabriela Cowperthwaite compiles shocking footage and emotional interviews to explore the creature’s extraordinary nature, the species’ cruel treatment in captivity, the lives and losses of the trainers and the pressures brought to bear by the mulit-billion dollar sea-park industry.

This emotionally wrenching, tautly structured story challenges us to consider our relationship to nature and reveals how little we humans have learned from these highly intelligent and enormously sentient fellow mammals.

    There was a fabulous story a while ago in National Geographic about Orcas, between that and the film I have a lot to think about. It was intriguing and heartwrenching.

    Hi Everyone! I won't be attending, but our hosts are Becky and Carol. Here's a description to help you find them. Carol is petite with long brown hair, and Becky is tall and thin with blonde hair and bangs. Becky's husband, Darrell has tattoos :) I think they are visible on his arms.

    Hey everyone, so unfortunately they switched the running dates from this Friday to next Thursday. I could host it for the 8:50 time sat night, but wanted to see if that would work for most folks. Sorry for the inconvenience!

      Hey Emily. We are out of town for a wedding this weekend so we will not be able to attend if you mean this Saturday.

    So it looks like opening night has changed to this coming Friday, not Friday Sept 6th, as originally posted on their website, but we are flexible and can work with that :) Everything will proceed as originally planned. I'm going to call the theater tomorrow so, i'll have an update on when we can get tickets then. Sorry about the slight change, we will still have fun though!

      Do you want me to change the date to this Friday?

    Hi all! From what I heard tickets will be going on sale tonight and can be purchased online at the terrace's website: http://69166.formovietickets.com:2235/ I would buy sooner, rather than later, as it's going to be a popular show. Also, does anyone have suggestions for a place to meet for drinks nearby?

      This would be for after the movie.

      Hey Emily. I'd forgotten this was an official meet-up & I messaged a bunch of people (you included) on Facebook.I called this afternoon & was told the website would be updated tonight so that tickets could be bought but as of right now it hasn't happened yet. Not sure about after the movie - I personally will be going to Cotton Branch on Saturday so will probably head on home after the movie. Thanks!!
