Gravity (at Lakewood Ranch Cinemas) ...and MacAllisters Grill & Tavern

Could this be a sell-out?  Don't know!  Not sure how big theater is.  3rd weekend in theaters.

Better suggestions for spot to meet?

Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity is an eerie, tense sci-fi thriller that's masterfully directed and visually stunning.

GRAVITY stars Oscar (R) winners Sandra Bullock and George Clooney in a heart-pounding thriller that pulls you into the infinite and unforgiving realm of deep space. Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (Clooney). But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone.

PG-13, 1 hr. 31 min.

After film we'll go to MacAllisters Grill & Tavern for discussion.  Just 300 ft away from cinema.

    Suspenseful, edge of your seat movie....nice to see Sandra Bullock in a dramatic role for a change. The food at the Paris Bistro was good. A small group this time and I hope it was not because we were at a different theater in eastern Manatee....really not that far!

    Really enjoyed the movie. Great adventure story with sublime visuals. Paris Bistrot is a small beautiful place, quite sophisticated, and a good value though a little pricey.

    I saw the 3D version of Gravity. I can't say 3D added much - unlike Life of Pi which had knock-your-socks-off 3D effects.

    The restaurant is Paris Bistrot.

    Had me on the edge of my seat. Not all of it logical - but this is entertainment -not a documentary. Glad I went and afterwards we went to a sweet little French bistro that I will happily return to! Was fun conversation too. Deb, were you the one who suggested where we dined? Or was it Cathy? Name of the place? Thanks, Chris for putting this together and all who helped with suggestions!

    It was good....we couldn't sit together, but we connected before going in so we knew who was there. Afterward we went to the French bistro on Main Street. Parking was a breeze and the beer fest didn't get in the way of our plans at all. Nice to meet you all.

    just an update to my directions. Once you are on Lakewood Ranch Blvd, turn RIGHT onto Boardwalk Loop (left turn is still Nature's Way), which is the 2nd traffic light - the first is Main Street, but better going the few hundred feet to Boardwalk Loop. Main Street will be crowded tonight as it is the annual Beer Festival from 5-7pm........you might want to come a little earlier for parking......see you later!!

    sorry Chris, I won't be able to make Saturday night--it is in a very small theatre, so I hope you all get there early--marlene

    for those of you not familiar with the area, it is very easy to find. Take I-75 north from Sarasota to University Parkway and make a RIGHT off the ramp, heading EAST. Lakewood Ranch Boulevard is the 3rd traffic light - turn LEFT. Pass Lakewood Ranch Medical Center on your LEFT and turn RIGHT at the 2nd light after the hospital onto Main Street (the left turn will be Nature's Way). At the t-intersection, which is only 50 yards or so, turn LEFT and follow around - you will see the theater on your left.

    3rd week playing so any free-movie-passes might be good.

    I just saw that there is a Beer Festival on Main St LWR Saturday from 5-9 PM. It might be hard to eat there.....but we could drink!

    October 25, 2013

    • Christopher

      Passes to festival are $25. Not sure if we'll drink that much. :) Thanks for heads-up!

    There is a small pub/tavern right next door that does $5 specials (soup & sandwich or burgers). Several of the theatres are really small ... you may want to check as to which one it's in. I probably won't make this one.

  • Cathy M.

    Yea!! Right down the road!! There are several good restaurants right on Lakewood Ranch's Main street where the theater is. The Polo Grill is too noisy, but good food......also good Italian at Main Street Trattoria, MacAlllisters Bar & Grill and Pinchers Crab Shack. All have menus on line. This site has links to all the restaurants:
