And the Oscar goes to.... Join us for dinner and a movie of your choice

Come join us for a fun night at the movies and dinner too. The Academy Awards are coming up on March 2nd  so it's time to catch an Oscar-nominated film that you have not yet seen. 

We will meet at Sweet Tomatoes at 5:30 to enjoy dinner and each other's company.  Over dinner, we can decide which movies everyone wants to see. We will then break up into smaller groups for the movie of your choice at Century 16, Pleasant Hill. This way,  you are able to choose what kind of movie you are in the mood for whether it be a drama, comedy or action. 

Some of the nominated films are American Hustle, August:Osage County, Inside Llewyn Davis, Nebraska, and The Wolf of Wall Street. Most movies start around 7pm to 7:30 so come on out for a fun time and choose the movie that you want to see!  Afterwards, we can reconvene at Jack's for drinks & maybe a snack and compare thoughts and reviews of the movies.

If time permits and there is interest, we will try to do this one more time before the Oscars. (Possibly on  Feb 22nd)

If you arrive late for dinner, find our group and join in on the decision making!  If you do not want to come to dinner, come meet with us in the restaurant at approx 6:30 so you can choose a movie too.

    THANK YOU FOR MAKING THIS A GREAT EVENT. I hope everyone had a FUN time. Keep an eye out for the same event soon. The group was so large! Sorry if I didn't get to talk or meet you.

    I liked it. Good "venue" to meet the group and bond a little. Better than a dance, really, since you can chat over dinner about a common goal- which movie to see?- then enjoy the movie- then part 3- drinks afterwards/ more chatting. Perfect.

    I'm sorry, everyone, but I will have to be a "no show." I'm dealing with my father on the phone, and I hesitate to hang up and say, "I'm attending a Meetup." Another time.

    I'm early. Sitting at the reserved tables.

    I won't be able to make it for dinner. I think I'll meet some group members in front of the theater around 6:45 p.m.

    Hey Gang, I think me and my guess will meet you guys @ the front of the theater before movie. Looking forward to seeing you guys.

    American Hustle and Dallas Buyer's Club are great movies. Enjoy!

  • Caroline

    I am hoping someone else wants to see Dallas Buyers Club

    • Francois

      I saw Dallas Buyers Club last month. It's really good. Thumbs up!!!!!

      1 · February 1, 2014

  • Tom

    I haven't seen Her yet, but it starts a bit later than the other movies, so I might do Dallas Buyers Club. I guess it will depend on when we get done eating.
