Out in Public: Special Movie Night Out

UPDATE (Aug 8): Showtimes released! With it being a tie, we've decided to go with the local boy, Neill Blomkamp's Elysium. He moved to Vancouver as teen, attended VFS, and still lives here with his wife. In fact the "Elysium" parts of the movie were filmed here. We'll be seeing the 7:15 show at Scotiabank Theatre on Burrard, get your tickets now!


On Friday August 9, we are going to have a special, one time, Friday night out at the movies.  Join Nerd HQ as we venture out into public.

Showtimes and locations for the movies on August 9th won't be released until  Aug 5, so final timing & location details will be posted closer to the actual date of this event, however, here are some basic locations/timing ideas so you can plan your life should you wish to join us:

THE PLAN:

Meet at either Scotiabank Theatre around 6-6:30pm.

Movie starts at 7:15

Watch Movie!

Movie Options:

Wolverine or Elysium or Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters???  Click below for the poll to the movie you would like to see most. The poll will close at midnight on Mon August 5.

Click here for POLL - POLL NOW CLOSED, Announcement about which movie soon to follow.

Please note! These three movies promise to be popular, so it will probably be in your best interest to pre-purchase your ticket. It's not necessary, but might save you some heartache at the box office.

    Grateful to Andrea for organizing this outing. We had a fun little talk in the lobby after the show. It was good to see both familiar & new faces.

    Hey everyone! We're at the front of the line for theatre 4, so we should be easy to find! See you when you get here!

    I've had to back out last minute. I'm on the ferry headed for the island. Got work there tomorrow morning. have fun guys and dolls!

    August 9, 2013

    • Andrea

      Have fun! I wasn't sure if I should expect you or not since you didn't RSVP, but it's good to know no seat saving is required!

  • Gayle

    Sorry, I'd be falling asleep and it's cheaper to do that at home. Have a good time.

    Happy Friday everyone! I hope people either have their tickets, or are getting them shortly, as I foresee this being SUPER popular tonight. For you lovely new folks, or maybe people who aren't 100% sure who I am, I will have a little 'Nerd HQ' sign with me at the theatre and am wearing a blue tshirt covered in sharks (in honour of my favourite week of all weeks, Shark Week, which ends tonight, but I digress...) and have big, curly brown hair. I'm going to hang out either in line, or near where tickets are torn. If you have any questions, just post them here and I'll see them! See you tonight!

    Hi there! Looking forward to this movie. Prob need to buy tickets in advance I would think.

    August 9, 2013

    • Andrea

      I would highly recommend getting tickets in advance!

      August 9, 2013

  • Sarah

    I has ticket, bought off my phone and everythings.

  • Andrea

    Alright folks, I know the vote narrowly went to AVX, however, that theatre is full. Like you can only get seats way down in front, full. So (sorry Joe) we're going to have to go with the 715 show. Please purchase your tickets ASAP!

    August 8, 2013

    • Andrea

      Cineplex.com, or the cineplex app, either way you still get your scene points

    • Corey B.

      Ok finally figured it out, ticket is bought

      1 · August 8, 2013

  • Jean-Francois A.

    I'm all ticketed up too! I'll try to get there early as well. Maybe I should bring a lot of coats, and be like "Yeah, these seats are taken, see, coat." ;)

    1 · August 8, 2013

  • Mariko

    Hooray, I bought my ticket! I'll try to get there as early as possible. Are we meeting up in line then? :)

  • Bo B.

    Darn. Friend's birthday same night. Friendship wins... it was a close call though. :(

    August 8, 2013

  • Nick N.

    I voted for AVX because the seats are better (sound is tehnically better, but mostly just a bit louder for most ears) and we can reserve seating.

    August 7, 2013

    • Julia S.

      I like AVX, but my only concern is how will we get seats all together? Just because we'll each be purchasing our own seats separately online... I guess we can just look at what's available and decide an area, then we'll each buy tickets in that area?

      August 7, 2013

    • Joe

      I voted for later start time since I'm gonna have to bail on the earlier start-time. I think someone *cough*Andrea*cough* may have to state a starting seat, and then the rest of us would plan orbit around that seat number if it's AVX. I know one or two people in this group would go for back row, while another might go for the fancy shaking seats 3/4 way-up.

    The Wolverine!!!!! Yes!!! Yes!!! Yes!!!

    August 6, 2013

    • Nick N.

      Says who?

      August 7, 2013

    • Joe

      No - that's a different meetup group, and I hear there's a new Doctor for next season.

    I assume it's Scotiabank theatre?

    August 7, 2013

    • Andrea

      Indeed it is

      August 7, 2013

  • Thomas Sullivan O.

    Boo!!! Boo!!! Hiss!!! Boo!!! Hiss!!! Hiss!!! Hiss!!! Boo!!!

    August 7, 2013

  • Nick N.

    If its The Wolverine, I'm out. Saw it last week. Good movie, but I can't afford to pay to see it twice.

    August 7, 2013

  • Joe

    tentative yes pending how busy this week is... or in other words, a lot of words saying maybe at the moment ;-P

    August 6, 2013

  • Nick N.

    What's the verdict?

    August 6, 2013

  • BookBabe

    A couple things...

    First - ALL THREE of those movies interest me, so can't really choose.

    Second - The Dolphin Theatre in N. Burnaby has Toonie Tuesdays -yes, movies cost $2! And right now it had The Wolverine playing there. Maybe (hopefully!) it will have the other 2 eventually.

    If there are any other (happily single) book & film loving nerds who might be interested in seeing various films there, message me.

    (The reason I mention "happily single" is because (1) I'd like to hang out with others with the same amount of freedom, and (2) so that people don't assume that I posted that in an attempt to find dates =)

      actually I was generally referring to how snobby, uptight and paranoid people are

      August 6, 2013

    • BookBabe

      lol... @ Thomas: I was going to say, "Nervous breakdown..?..Or heart attack? (from shock)". Do you really find people snobby/uptight/paranoid here -or did you mean everywhere? @ Nick: Thanks, but just brains here really. =|

      August 6, 2013

  • Thomas Sullivan O.

    what happens if 2 movies tie?

    August 5, 2013

  • Nick N.

    I vote for Elysium.

    1 · August 4, 2013

    • Bo B.

      Did you use the poll, so you know your vote is in the count?

      August 5, 2013

    • Nick N.

      Yes I did Bo. Thank you for checking in to be sure though. 8^)
