A Saturday Social - Movie Matinée: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

Another last minute meetup - I'm beginning to set a precedence on these. ;o)

Let's escape this blasted cold winter weather that refuses to release its grip and spend a few hours indoors for some social time WITHOUT having a camera in our grasp - oh my(!), what do we do with our hands??

A few of us will be going to watch The Secret Life of Walter Mitty movie which has been recommended by several people as not only a good movie, but one enjoyable for photographers.  Since I'm the trusting sort, that's enough for me - I have no idea what the movie is about.  ;o)

You can go here to read about it if you'd like.

The Cinemark is a "buck-seventy-five" theatre so the ticket price is definitely right - more money left over for camera gear!  

I've never been there but have told you buy your tickets outside the venue and than go inside to a lobby area. We will meet in the lobby area to the left of the entrance doors prior to giving our ticket to the usher. 

If someone would confirm via a comment that this is the way the theatre is laid out, I'd appreciate it.  

We will meet at 2 PM for the 2:20 showing. Please be on time so we can allow for a quick mingle and refreshments before heading into the theatre to meet Mr. Mitty.  The movie should be over shortly after 4 so we can spend a few minutes discussing the movie, if desired, prior to 5 PM.

Mmmmm, not much else to say - it's a movie folks. We've probably been to a few in our time and understand the mechanics of going to one. ;o) 

So let's get together in a more social environment, dream about warmer weather, and spend a couple hours being entertained on the cheap. Whaddya say?

Hope to see you there.  Any questions please leave a comment and I will respond promptly.

    Hey everyone! Since this movie date was such a success - lets look ahead and plan for others. Check out this upcoming documentary. It looks like the screening is in April for Columbus: http://www.vivianmaier.com/film-finding-vivian-maier/

      Hi Randy! I sent a reply last night, but I see it didn't post...., anyways I typically coordinate my north Columbus outings with visits to my sister. Sadly her plans changed so I'll be missing the event, but hopefully, weather permitting, I'll see y'all tomorrow! Enjoy!

      I did see the notice Tamara. Thanks. Looks like you saved youself a trip to Iceland (see Jenny's comment) by not going to the movie so that might a good thing. Hope to see you tomorrow, we'll see. Haven't checked the weather yet today.

      Debra, looking forward to meeting you tomorrow. Tracy too! Should be a good way to spend an afternoon before we get snowed in for a couple days, eh?

    Yes, that IS the layout of the theatre -- pay outside to get inside the building.
