Let's see The Grand Budapest Hotel at the Sun-Ray

By now Film Connoisseurs of Jax regulars have the preview of this latest effort by director Wes Anderson thoroughly memorized.  Now it's time to see if it lives up to the hype!   Plan to stick around afterwards to discuss our reactions to the movie. The quarterly fee for the website are due in a few days, so a dollar or two donation would be greatly appreciated.

    It was good but probably not Anderson's best, I think. I expected better from him.

    Thank you for your email Chris, you got my name right :)
    I tried buying tickets online, but the site was not available. But there are ample tickets as per theater office.

      I'm thinking you only attend films with the word "hotel" in them ;-). Really glad you joined us.

    I think we were all very impressed with The Grand Budapest Hotel. Thanks to all who showed up and also to those who generously contributed to the cause. I think the next time we have a large turnout and are met with an after movie downpour, we'll make Al's Pizza the automatic choice, as they are always very accommodating.

      Very nice to meet you too! The movie was great! The weather was terrible but the company made it all worth while.

    I already have plans with another meetup group on Friday, but would LOVE to see the film! If only it was Saturday, Sunday or Monday! Drat!

    I am sorry I will be unable to attend` tonight. I did get to see the film Wednesday, but it's an instant classic and worth repeated viewings (imho).

    Sadly cannot make the time of the movie tonight. Will join the group next time.

    Sonja may well be right about the possibility of a sellout. If you're concerned, you can purchase your ticket in advance on the Sun-Ray website (there's a $2 service fee).

      I didn't know that. Thank you Chris!

    Really bummed that I can't go to this with you guys. But Sir James Galway is performing with the JAX Symphony tomorrow night, and he's a personal hero of mine. But have fun!

      It seems every other week there's another famous flutist coming to town ;-)

      Have I mentioned that I live your dry sense of humor?

    Just saw it this morning in Europe. Enjoyed it. The filming,cast small models and farce of a story. Great spoof with some score of actors.

    YES! Been waiting to see this one. Good thing we get there early, I'm sure it will sell out.

    Drat! Indeed, I too can probably recite the lines from the trailer. ;-) Alas, I'll be out of town Friday. I'll definitely catch it soon, though.

    I hope to be there by 6:45...if late, I'll be looking for film goers grou.-:)
