Read the book and then see the movie - Winter's Tale

UPDATE - WE WILL BE SEEING THIS MOVIE AT ROBINSON - IT STARTS AT 7:25.  I'LL BE IN THE LOBBY FROM 7 TO ABOUT 7:15.  IF YOU GET THERE LATER THAN THAT, MEET US IN THE THEATER. PLEASE UPDATE YOUR RSVP IF PLANS HAVE CHANGED AND YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO MEET US.

CAN ANYONE HELP VONDA AND ARIFA OUT WITH A RIDE THAT NIGHT?  I HATE TO SEE ANYONE HAVE TO MISS THIS IF THEY WANT TO COME.

I want to see the movie Winter's Tale that's being released on Valentine's Day and just this evening I found out it's a book!  So let's read the book and then see it sometime late in February. 

FYI Downton Abbey fans - the main female character is the woman who played Lady Sybil.

Here's the info about the book and movie:

New York City is subsumed in arctic winds, dark nights, and white lights, its life unfolds, for it is an extraordinary hive of the imagination, the greatest house ever built, and nothing exists that can check its vitality. One night in winter, Peter Lake--orphan and master-mechanic, attempts to rob a fortress-like mansion on the Upper West Side.

Though he thinks the house is empty, the daughter of the house is home. Thus begins the love between Peter Lake, a middle-aged Irish burglar, and Beverly Penn, a young girl, who is dying.

Peter Lake, a simple, uneducated man, because of a love that, at first he does not fully understand, is driven to stop time and bring back the dead. His great struggle, in a city ever alight with its own energy and beseiged by unprecedented winters, is one of the most beautiful and extraordinary stories of American literature.

    I like the idea of reading a book and then seeing the movie based on it!!!

    I'm still a couple hours away from Pgh, so I don't know if I'll make it. I changed the rsvp to a "No" so that you will not be looking for me. If possible, I'll be there and find you. Enjoy!!

    I can attend the southside works location or even waterfront but not Robinson. When will we know for sure which location?

      I won't know for sure till the schedules come out - probably next Wednesday or Thursday.

    Will anyone be traveling from/through downtown Pittsburgh to this movie and then back into Pittsburgh? I have never been to either of these theaters and since I live in Butler County, but work in downtown Pittsburgh, I am not familiar with either the Robinson or Southside areas. Would like to come to the movie, but not feeling inclined to go searching for a theater in the dark in an unfamiliar high traffic area.

      Vonda - as long as we are going to Robinson it's very easy to find. It's right off the Ridge Road exit off 376 west. You'll see the shopping complex called Settler's Ridge from the highway. You just go to the top of the hill and you'll see the theater.

      The last time I drove to Robinson for anything was at least 5 years ago when I met some people for supper at one of the restaurants there (I remember that it was summertime and we sat on the patio to eat). While your directions seem simple enough - "Ridge Road exit off 376 West to Settler's Ridge shopping complex" - since I so rarely travel to Robinson I have literally no clue where Ridge Road or the Settler's Ridge shopping complex are among the jumble of stores that I picture in my mind as "Robinson" - Driving is not an issue for me - God knows that I put more miles on my car per year than most people - probably twice as many miles as a lot of people - and I will be happy to "meet up" at the theater in Waterworks (Aspinwall), Waterfront, anywhere in the North Hills, or Cranberry - but if carpooling is not an option for Robinson or the Southside than the odds of my attending on the 24th/25th are slim to none.
