The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug - Opening Night - $8!

I have spoken with the Organizer of Discount Movies and Events and we can go watch this film on opening night for only $8! Do not go to the box office directly, come see me first so you can get your voucher. If possible, try to have the exact amount but I will bring change with me if need be.

The movie is scheduled to begin at 6:30 pm. If you are planning on attending, please start arriving by 5:30 pm and no later than 6:20 pm if at all possible. We will meet at the benches next to the Wells Fargo ATM above the movie theater entrance. I'd like our group to go in together and grab good seats. The movie is 2 hours and 40 minutes. Afterwards, I'll take our members over to Applebee's for late night appetizers and drink specials and 10% off regular menu items. We can discuss the movie and any other stuff on your mind. I also will give attendees an idea of future events and ask for opinions as well.

I will also be hosting guest for Discount Movies and Events that evening, so somebody may need to save me a good seat...please!!!

    Well since this is my first event I hope some of us make it to a bar or applebees after the 715 show. I'd really like the chance to meet of few fellow members too.

    Will we be going to Applebees after the first or second showing of the movie? I am really looking forward to meeting fellow members.

    I'll be there around 5:30, but I have to admit that going a grabbing a burger before the 7:15 showing would be nice...any respectable hobbit would have a meal on her mind.

    I've received a few questions about the movie tonight. I now plan on going to the 7:15 pm showing to avoid the theater with the D-box seating.

    I will still show up at the meeting place starting at 5:30 pm for any individuals who prefer to go the 6:30 pm showing instead.

    If you plan on coming to the 7:15 pm showing, please be there no later than 7:00 pm. I'd like to go in with everybody and get a good seat.

    Hi John and thanks for the update. I'll show up early, too since I'll be in that part of town anyway, but I won't mind waiting for the later showing, depending on how it plays out for whoever shows up.

    December 12, 2013

  • John

    I just found today that the 6:30 pm showing has been moved to the stupid D-Box theater. There is a 7:15 pm in the regular theater with better seating. I would prefer to go to the 7:15 pm as a result, but I will still show up early (5:30 pm) in case people still want to go to the early showing.

    • Elvira

      Hi John, thanks for the update! I had planned to leave work early as I have to take the 5 south, and that could be kind of unpredictable on a Friday afternoon. So hopefully I will be there by 5:30, but I don't mind going to one or other showing, I would prefer better seating as well but I am going to be hyped either way :)

    Arrgh! Wanted to join up for the Hobbit showing this Fri, but work-related stuff is calling! You guys have a great time, watch for the dragon-fire!

    Sticking a pin in this! I was at the Horton Plaza Day of the Doctor, but had no idea how to find the others. So I guess this will be my first meet.

    December 3, 2013

      Rebekah, we look forward to meeting you then.

    I would totally be down for a Saturday outing, cant make a weekday before 7 due to work.

    November 24, 2013

    • John

      Loc, Jeffrey and I talked about this and there is the possibility that if he can't make a Friday night showing he would probably host his group on Saturday or Sunday as well. Keep the faith my friend! We will get you in one way or another for $8!

      1 · November 26, 2013

    • John

      Loc, another viewing on Sunday night for $8. See my post above for more info.

      December 5, 2013

  • John

    Whovians,

    If you can't make the Friday night to watch this film, my friend Jeffrey from Discount Movies and Events will also be hosting a viewing on Sunday, December 15 at the same time and place. Go to his website and sign up to see the film there. Same price of $8.00!

    Looking forward to it!
    It will be my first meet-up ever as well, so I wanted to ask if there is a specific place you use as meeting point before the movie?
    Thanks :)

    December 3, 2013

    • John

      Elvira, we all look forward to meeting you then. The meeting place will be the benches next to the Wells Fargo ATM above the movie theater entrance.

      Thanks John! Looking forward to meeting you all :)

    Then I guess I am really, really EARLY! And I have more of the parking situation figured out! Wandering about I noticed underground parking on near the theater. How does one get to that?

    I look forward to the "after party" so I can meet some of the members.

    This is the first meet-up group I have joined. Looking at the conversation on the website, I see "mute" as an option. What does that do?

    Tasha, this event isn't until Friday, December 13th.

    I am quite perturbed. I had trouble finding a parking spot. I got to the theater door at 2 minutes after 6 (6:02). No one was to be found and the people I talked to had no idea what I was talking about! I had to just turn around and drive back home--movie unseen.

    November 29, 2013

  • John

    Sonette, I checked and the movie will start at 6:30 pm. This is the non-3D version. I am adjusting the time and would like everyone to start arriving by 5:30 pm and no later than 6:00 pm if possible. I'd like to go in with everyone and get a good seat.

    November 27, 2013

    • Sonette

      Got it. i'll see you at 5:30.

      November 27, 2013

  • Sonette

    What time will everyone be meeting at The Benches?
