Monday Matinee: Much Ado About Nothing

 

 

 

 

We will meet up for lunch near the theater before the 1:50 pm showing. More details TK...

In director Joss Whedon's (The Avengers, Serenity) modern re-telling of William Shakespeare's classic, a series of comic and tragic events conspire to keep two couples from truly finding happiness—but then again perhaps love will prevail. Leonato (Clark Gregg), the governor of Messina, is visited by his friend Don Pedro (Reed Diamond) who is returning from a victorious campaign against his rebellious brother Don John (Sean Maher). Accompanying Don Pedro are two of his officers: Benedick (Alexis Denisof) and Claudio (Fran Kranz). While in Messina, Claudio falls for Leonato's daughter Hero (Jillian Morgese), while Benedick verbally spars with Beatrice (Amy Acker), the governor's niece. The budding love between Claudio and Hero prompts Don Pedro to arrange with Leonato for a marriage. In the days leading up to the ceremony, Don Pedro, with the help of Leonato, Claudio and Hero, attempts to sport with Benedick and Beatrice in an effort to trick the two into falling in love. Meanwhile, the villainous Don John plots against the happy couple to destroy the marriage before it begins. Filmed at Whedon's own house, Much Ado About Nothing also stars Nathan Fillion.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone today! I will have a red MEETUP sign at Project Pie if you're joining us there. I think I have already met the folks who are just going to the movie, so keep an eye out for us at the theater. See you soon! :)

    I just sent out an email with details about tomorrow's lunch & film. Please let me know if you didn't get it (sorry the paragraphs all run together; there's a glitch in the Meetup software). Looking forward to seeing all of you soon!

    Also, in case you don't know about it, there is a parking garage under the theater. The theater will validate parking (maximum 3 hours, I believe, so you may need to pay a bit if you'll be parking there for lunch).

    Ok, I confirmed with Lotus Cafe that they are closing today (thanks for the heads-up, Andrew!). Here is the NEW PLAN for Monday:

    Noon - Meet for lunch at PROJECT PIE, 3888 Fourth Ave., Hillcrest (please let me know if you'll be there)
    1:50 - Movie at Hillcrest Cinema

    More info on Project Pie (build-your-own pizza place with regular & gluten-free crust options): http://www.yelp.com/biz/project-pie-san-diego

    If you need to contact me, please reply to the email I sent or use the phone number in that message. Thanks & see you soon! :)

    No guest coming. Any idea where we will meet to eat? If we eat at Lotus of Jersey Mike's we can get two validations, restaurant and movie. I've done it.

      Welcome to San Diego and to the group, Andrew! I'm happy you and your wife will be joining us. We will probably meet at Lotus Cafe around noon. I will send more info as the date approaches. Have a great weekend!
