Announcing a new Meetup for Plus & Proud: The Zaftig Society of Kansas City!

What: The Sunday Afternoon ~Plus & Proud~ NEW Movie Club! Movie & Discussion!

When: November 8,[masked]:30 PM

Price: $4.00 per person

Cinemark 20 Merriam Theatre
5500 Antioch Rd.
Merriam, KS 66202

I know we have bowling scheduled this week on the same night but some of us were still wanting a movie since we need our "cinema fix".

NEW MOVIE SUNDAY this week includes:

A Christmas Carol with Jim Carrey starting at 5:45
The Box with Cameron Diaz starting at 5:05
The Fourth Kind starring Milla Jovovich starting at 5:00
Men Who Stare At Goats starring George Clooney starting at 4:50

As always we like to meet in the lobby or in the cafe just off the lobby to the left while we wait for others.

Don't forget the popcorn...

And since we are doing bowling and they are offering a great menu choice, we are heading to the bowling alley after the movie. The special bowling doesn't start til 9 but this would only give us about an hour after the movie we can relax there.

Donna and I are personally going to see The Box at 5:05pm. Others can join us or they can choose one of the other flicks. We'll be waiting in the lobby at 4:30 and staying until 7:30 for others who see other shows.

If you are running late, or you need to ask about the movies, bowling or need someone to wait for you call Ron at 816.223.1516.

About this meetup:

A few weeks ago when we had the Olive Garden & a Movie meetup, we decided that Sunday movies should be a tradition for the group. We were especially excited to find out that you can see new movies at Cinemark Merriam for $4.00 matinee price (before 6 PM)! Cinemark Merriam is the big theatre near the corner of Johnson Drive and Antioch, or if you are coming either direction on I-35, you can exit onto Antioch and practically be in the movie theatre's backyard.

So, this Sunday, we are going to start that tradition - a cheap movie, and then discussion and socializing afterwards at Denny's. You know Denny's, that all-American diner where you can get such delightful dishes as "Moons Over My Hammy" or "The SuperBird."

After the movie, we will head approx. 1 mile South on Antioch to Denny's. Denny's is just west of the Sears Grand - was K-Mart - that's at the corner of Antioch & Shawnee Mission Parkway.

Denny's Restaurant
9001 WEST 63RD ST

If you want to join us for just the movie, or the restaurant, that's fine. You can email Lana and get her cell phone # if you want to be alerted when the movie is out and we're heading to the restaurant.

P.S. If you are on the fence about attending, give the group a chance. We don't care what size you are (big, little, tall, short, thin, black, white, straight, gay.....) everyone is welcomed into this group with love and understanding, and you'll make new friends you don't know how you've lived without so far! Socializing keeps us connected to the greater world, raises our serotonin, boosts our immune systems, and makes us happier, more well-rounded people!
