Only RSVP if you are genuinely interested in attending. No shows and late drop outs will be recorded.
Date: Sunday 15 September 2013
Time: Meet by 9.50am for the 10.00am session. Look out for my Meet Up badge on a table opposite the ticket booth. I know it's early but look at my lunch venue ideas below!
A note to our new members: We buy our tickets individually at the desk (or online if you wish). We're in Cinema 1 (but this may change) and there is no reserve seating. Given the timing I say we'll have the cinema entirely to ourselves. For members who attended "Jobs", remember your complimentary ticket if you haven't use it already.
Post Film Discussion: I've booked a table for us at Beer Deluxe at Federation Square. It's reasonably priced, and offers vegetarian and gluten free options - see menu at http://www.beerdeluxe.com.au/fed-square/menus
Could you please update your rsvp if you don’t intend to come. Last minute drop outs on Saturday night and Sunday morning, and not showing up is not very nice, so please be considerate (I keep a list of offenders!).
You are most welcome to join us for the film only, but please let me know.

Synopsis: "After everything in her life falls to pieces, including her marriage to wealthy businessman Hal, elegant New York socialite Jasmine (Cate Blanchett) moves into her sister Ginger's modest apartment in San Francisco to try to pull herself back together again.
Throughout his career, Woody Allen has created many indelible female characters portrayed by some of the world's greatest actresses. Certain to take her place in this gallery of multifaceted, complex, and richly observed women is Jasmine, the troubled heroine of Allen's new film BLUE JASMINE, portrayed by the extraordinary Cate Blanchett. She stars alongside an incredible supporting cast including Alec Baldwin, Sally Hawkins, Bobby Cannavale, Peter Sarsgaard, Louis C.K. and Michael Stuhlbarg, in this emotionally powerful drama that is wise, tender and funny in equal measure".
