The Lone Ranger (followed by Neopolitan Pizza at Cafe Porta Alba)

You may already have strong feelings about this movie.  If not, you probably will by the time it is over.  There seems to be a love/hate thing about Johnny Depp as Tonto, for instance....but I thought Mr. Ebert gave a beautiful intro (particular bits seemed appropriate for this particular audience):

"'The Lone Ranger' is a movie with no constituency to speak of. It's a gigantic picture with a klutzy, deeply un-cool hero based on a property that most young viewers don't know or care about....Too bad: for all its miscalculations, this is a personal picture, violent and sweet, clever and goofy. It's as obsessive and overbearing as Steven Spielberg's "1941" — and, I'll bet, as likely to be re-evaluated twenty years from now, and described as 'misunderstood.'" (To read more, see http://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/the-lone-ranger-2013).

We will meet in the smooshy chair section adjacent to the ticket counter area.  The movie starts at 4pm.  **Please note that, to sit together, we should buy our tickets at the same time, as you must choose your seat at the time of purchase.**

Post-movie, I'm suggesting Cafe Porta Alba for their excellent Neopolitan-style pizza.  To view the menu ahead of time, visit: http://www.cafeportaalba.com/pdf/pacdinner.pdf

    The Lone Ranger was meh, but the pizza and conversation afterward was great fun!

    I'm sorry, guys - really not feeling well today. I'll be thinking of the movie with curiosity and the pizza with deep-felt longing...

    I saw this movie on Wednesday, and it isn't what many critics make it out to be. Give it a day in court.

    I've had pretty hit-or-miss experiences trying to get good seats right before a movie starts at Sundance...Would it be more feasible to specify a desired seating area ahead of time so people can grab tickets in advance, or is that likely to be too complicated to deal with?

    • Anthea

      Yup - I'll get back to you later today....

    So if you saw Joshua's question... Yes, you could buy your ticket ahead of time, aiming for the middle of rows H or I.

    I'll go to a movie with you if and whenever you want to see a comedy movie. I like movies and TV shows that make me laugh. Laughter can reduce stress, and it's my primary type of entertainment.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
