FREE Movies on the Terrace: "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery"

It's that time of year . . . FREE movies with sailboats, good friends, and lakeside luminescent libations (a/k/a Beer from the Union). Last year's "Galaxy Quest" and "Wrath of Kahn" meetups were such hits that we decided to host another FREE movie meetup on the lovely UW Memorial Union Terrace.

The film: Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997)

Summary: Mike Myers stars as Austin Powers, by day a hipster fashion photographer in mid-'60s swingin' London and by night a crime-fighting secret agent. Austin's wardrobe is pure Carnaby Street at its most outrageous, his vocabulary is crowded by the cool lingo of the day, and he's irresistible to women, despite the fact that he can be charitably described as "stocky" and has teeth that strike fear into any practicing dentist.

Movie Start Time: 9 PM after the sun sets. Even though the meetup's time is 7 PM, you don't necessarily have to get there that early. I do recommend that you get there before dark so you can find the group and an available seat.

How to find the group: I will aim for getting us the same "rock star" seating we had last year in front of the screen, one step up underneath some nice shade trees. I will gather a few tables and mark our area with a balloon. Call me at (608)[masked] if you have trouble finding us.

Food: Is recommended . . . especially if you partake in lakeside luminescent libations (a/k/a Beer from the Union). Food is on your own and is available from der Rathskeller inside Memorial Union. You are also welcome to bring any food you wish from anywhere you choose.

Lakeside Luminescent Libations: You may purchase beer from the Union if you have a WISCard (employee, student, or affiliate) or are a member of the Memorial Union.

Hope to see you there!

    It would have been better if they hadn't run out of seats indoors.

    I've secured rock star seating in a shaded area in front of where the screen will be. It is marked by a Mylar balloon shaped like the sun with a smiley face.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
