Pizza & A Movie: Dallas Buyers Club

  • Its Oscar season - so many movies, so little time...

    Here's one I really want to see before I head down south for a few weeks.

    Matthew McConaughey stars in DALLAS BUYERS CLUB as real-life Texas cowboy Ron Woodroof, whose free-wheeling life was overturned in 1985 when he was diagnosed as HIV-positive and given 30 days to live. These were the early days of the AIDS epidemic, and the U.S. was divided over how to combat the virus. Ron, now shunned and ostracized by many of his old friends, and bereft of government-approved effective medicines, decided to take matters in his own hands, tracking down alternative treatments from all over the world by means both legal and illegal. Bypassing the establishment, the entrepreneurial Woodroof joined forces with an unlikely band of renegades and outcasts - who he once would have shunned - and established a hugely successful "buyers' club." Their shared struggle for dignity and acceptance is a uniquely American story of the transformative power of resilience

    This one's getting Oscar buzz for the performances of both Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto, who plays transsexual Rayon.

    We will be going to see the 4:35 showing of this movie at the AMC Star Cinema on County Hwy. PD, just east of Verona Road. Buy your ticket and meet us in the lobby area (left side).  For those interested, after the movie let's head over to Roman Candle Pizzeria (2685 Research Park Dr., near the southeast corner of Lacy and Fish Hatchery Road in Fitchburg).

    Movie time is approximate, since times for this date aren't published yet.  Stay tuned for an update if the time changes.

    Hope to see you there!

    FYI, the Movies and Meals MeetUp is going to the 2:55 showing of Wolf of Wall Street. I don't like dealing with the crowds that show up at new releases, so I'm going to pass. Next time!

    Dallas Buyer's Club is gone from Madison! Look for my email to vote for an alternative selection for this Meetup.

      I've already seen Saving Mr. Banks and have no desire to see the 2 other choices, so guess I'll take a rain check on going to the movies. Choices are definitely kid-centric right now because (I guess) it's school vacation.
