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. Note: Happy hour prices are only available until 6:00 PM.

The Movie for tonight is the Great Gatsby playing at 7:40 PM. I suggest you purchase movie tickets prior to dinner.
Some people attending the movie are dressing up in 1920's regalia. Note: The 1920's clothing is optional for everyone else but mandatory for Queen.
An aspiring writer falls under the spell of an aloof millionaire with designs for the young scribe's unhappily married cousin in director Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's celebrated novel. It's the spring of 1922, and wide-eyed Midwesterner Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) has just moved to New York City in pursuit of the American Dream. Settling into a home next door to wealthy Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio), Carraway grows increasingly fascinated by the elaborate parties held at his new neighbor's estate. Meanwhile, across the bay, Carraway's cousin Daisy (Carey Mulligan) flounders in her marriage to philandering aristocrat Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton). Inspired by the debauchery on display at Gatsby's wild parties and the lives of the wealthy elite, Carraway begins putting pen to paper as it gradually becomes clear that his cousin and the millionaire share a complicated romantic past that remains unresolved. Isla Fisher, Jason Clarke, and Elizabeth Debicki co-star.
Movie tickets are $6.00 all day on Tuesdays for seniors (60).
Note: You may purchase discounted AMC movie tickets (two for $16.00) at the Covington and Tukwilla Costco checkouts stands. Twelve dollar movie tickets for $8.00, a savings of $4.00 per ticket.
