Free Showing of "Here Comes the Boom" at my place in South Boston!

  • Jun 23, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Come to my place this Sunday, and we'll watch a private showing of Here Comes the Boom with Kevin James and Salma Hayek on my big-screen TV!

We'll meet at McGoo's Pizza at 7 pm (around the corner from where I live), order *FOOD*, and bring it back to my place. If you miss us at McGoo's, my address is

311 Silver St (Rear), South Boston MA 02127.

If you don't want pizza or Italian food, there is a Chinese and Mexican place next door to McGoo's. There's also a Dunkin' Donuts across the street, and there's a P S Gourmet if you prefer cafe-style coffee.

Feel free to bring your favorite DVD's, too. If there's something you want to watch, we may be able to see a second movie. And if you have any requests, please post them below. For me, "The Princess Bride" and "The American President" are must-sees. Any other recommendations? I've got an extensive movie collection, so don't be bashful!

Snacks are always welcome. I'll provide the TV and chairs!

If there's continuing interest, I will try to repeat this event every Sunday night.

TRANSPORTATION: If you're coming from downtown, take the Red Line to Broadway station, and then take the 9 bus towards City Point (or walk the 12 minutes up West Broadway). Or you can pick up the 9 bus at Copley and take it all the way. The 9 bus stops right in front of McGoo's Pizza, at "Perkins Square," the intersection of Broadway and Dorchester St. I live behind McGoo's on Silver St. Don't ring the doorbell. Go through the white gate on the right of the house, down the short alleyway, and my door is on the left. You'll see a Meetup sign.

If you want to drive, there is street parking along Broadway St and Dorchester St, and there is a small public lot next to Bank of America diagonally across from McGoo's.

For next week's event, Pitch Perfect!

    I remember fondly the 80s when we'd go to Play It Again Sam's in Brighton for a double-feature. Such a novel thing it was back then -- movies inside with a bar & food! Back when MTV played videos & happy hours still existed. Thanks Gary for bringing back the fun.
