Calling all movie lovers. We meet the second Tuesday and the fourth Friday of every month to get our movie fix. We will be meeting for Happy Hour/Dinner from 5:30 PM until 7:00 PM before the movie. Note: Happy hour prices are only available until 6:00 PM.

Reservations are under Joy. See you at the movies!

The movie is Oz: the Great and Powerful in 3D at 7:25 PM. The senior ticket is $9.50 for this performance, adult tickets are $14.25. They have only sheduled 3D performances for this movie.

It is recommended that you purchase tickets before dinner/happy hour. If you don't want to see this movie you may select another one. The group usually splits up and goes to different movies.

Movie description:

Disney's fantastical adventure 'Oz The Great and Powerful,' directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum's beloved character, the Wizard of Oz. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he's hit the jackpot fame and fortune are his for the taking, that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone's been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity and even a bit of wizardry Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well.

Movie tickets are $6.00 all day on Tuesdays for attendes (60).

Note: You may purchase discounted AMC movie tickets (two for $16.00) at the Covington and Tukwilla Costco checkout's  stands. Twelve dollar movie tickets for $8.00, a savings of $4.00 per ticket.

    My last position was in technology sales as a mid market account sales executive in printers at HP in Colorado Springs...and before that at CDW in Chicago... I have two degrees the last one in Computer multimedia .. I would also love a teaching position and I have personal trainer certification. I have done a lot in sales but have no "network here"... and in college Iwrote news stories for NBC & CNN as an intern. I Waldo had my own gourmets food catering business for 10 years when my kids were growing up. ...and there is more so you could call me a "Jack of all trades!"

      Hi Shane, I try to make a decision about the events that I feel I can afford and get the most enjoyment out of. Some are more difficult to "visit" than others. When we are sitting down to eat, I try to get up and "visit" for a few minutes with the other end of the table so I can feel a part of the group. After all...that's what the meetups are all about, right? (BTW: I had a GREAT potluck Xmas party at my apartment...maybe I'll have another one of those!)

    Just thought I'd let you all know: I had my surgery this morning. All went well and only half of my thyroid .. So that's good news! My oxygen levels were too low all afternoon so they kept me overnight to regulate. The GREAT thing is that I can move my head (almost) as much as before!! I imagined being like a robot for six weeks, but as long as I use my hands to lift my head, it's all good!! So I just might be out there dancing next week!!! Yeah!!

      Hi Morlene...IF I'd known I'd feel so good today, I wouldn't have even mentioned my surgery! I really thought I'd be down for AT LEAST 6 weeks!!! I'm so pleased with my doctor, surgery and my friends! Thank you

    Steve, No worries, you RSVP'd for the Banyan Tree at 5:30 PM. The orginal posting went out under Mama Stortinos because the system had not yet updated the location.

    March 7, 2013
