The Good, The Bad and the Ugly

  • Garneau Theatre

    8712 - 109 Street NW, Edmonton, AB (map)

    53.522993 -113.512083

  • This is the last film of the Best of the West series that has been playing at the Garneau. Who wishes to join me?

    From the website: After coming upon a horse carriage filled with dead bodies, a nameless gunslinger (Clint Eastwood) and a wanted outlaw learn of a potential fortune hidden in a cemetery from the carnage’s sole survivor before he passes. The men form an uneasy alliance to track down the gold before a bounty hunter (Lee Van Cleef) beats them to it. One of the most beloved Westerns of all time, Sergio Leone made himself and Clint Eastwood a star by bringing a ruthless European sensibility to his favourite American movie myth. With its virtuoso cinematography and iconic score, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly came to both change and define the genre, proving that the Western is so foundational to movie making, that you don’t need to be American or in America to make one of the best.

    Sounds interesting!

    Meetup time is 6:45pm in the main lobby of the Garneau. I'll be near the couches. I'll hold my usual bouquet of artificial flowers so that you can spot me easily.

    If anyone is interested in a post-film coffee and discussion, we can certainly head out afterwards for that, too.

    Hope to see you then!

    Hi Maria. Wish I could go. When I was marooned in Kingston, ON long ago, the only entertainment was this movie. I saw it about 8 times. I know all of the dialog--in both English and Italian. This character, along with the 1950s George Reeve's version of Superman, pretty much defines my personality.

    I can only hit the Wednesday viewing next week, but it'll be amazing on the big screen every day. This will help get people ready. :) haha

      Haha! Awesome. Incidentally, I went to a great Fringe show called "Good, Bad, and Ugly" the other day. This show was a performance of chamber music with a modern twist, and the chamber ensemble played this theme song! :) Too bad that you can't make it for this meetup, though. Seems that our paths just can't cross, hey? But at least you'll have a chance to see this film on the big screen, even if on a different night.

      I ended up changing the date to Wednesday after all, as I can't make it on the Saturday anymore. :) Hope you can attend the meetup!! :)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
