Please join us as we watch STAR TREK: INTO DARKNESS (view the trailer), the highly anticipated sequel to 2009's reboot of the franchise, directed by J.J. Abrams (Alias, Lost, MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 3, STAR TREK, SUPER 8, STAR WARS EPISODE VII) and written by Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman (both wrote MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 3, STAR TREK) and Damon Lindelof (PROMETHEUS). The film stars Chris Pine (STAR TREK, UNSTOPPABLE, THIS MEANS WAR), Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock, THE HOBBIT), Zachary Quinto (24, STAR TREK, Heroes, American Horror Story), Karl Urban (THE CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK, STAR TREK, RED, DREDD), Zoe Saldana (VANTAGE POINT, STAR TREK, AVATAR, COLOMBIANA), Simon Pegg (SHAUN OF THE DEAD, HOT FUZZ, STAR TREK), John Cho (HAROLD & KUMAR GO TO WHITE CASTLE, STAR TREK, FlashForward, Go On), Anton Yelchin (CHARLIE BARTLETT, STAR TREK, TERMINATOR: SALVATION, FRIGHT NIGHT), Bruce Greenwood (THIRTEEN DAYS, DEJA VU, NATIONAL TREASURE: BOOK OF SECRETS, STAR TREK), and Alice Eve (SHE'S OUT OF MY LEAGUE, MEN IN BLACK 3).
After the crew of the Enterprise find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction.
We will most likely not be seeing the movie in in 3D or IMAX.
UPDATE (PLEASE READ!):
We'll be attending the 1:00 PM showtime. If you'd like to save time and ensure your ticket, you can buy your tickets online here (in case the link says the showtime is no longer available, just select "Sunday, Jun. 2, 2013" and the 1:00 showtime and it should work). Fandango does charge a convenience fee, and I don't think Regal waives it if you're a rewards member, but just in case you can use Regal Crown Club #: 0000021242167 (5 leading 0s). We'll be going to Aditi Indian Dining (walking distance) for dinner following the movie. If you plan to attend, you must RSVP separately for June's Dinner (no reading required!).
We ask that you please meet up with the group before the movie so we can accurately take attendance. If you arrive before the meetup starts, we'll be standing near the tables past the ticket checker. After that prior to the showtime, we'll start saving seats (to the extent we can for a group this big) and you can meet us right outside the entrance to our theatre room. If you arrive late, we'll re-congregate after the movie immediately outside our theatre room.
Lastly, we do ask that if you attend a movie screening with us, that you please refrain from talking during the movie or disrupting the experience for other guests. We want everyone in the group to be able to hear and enjoy their movie experience, and we also would like to maintain a positive relationship with the theatre, so your cooperation is appreciated. There will be plenty of opportunity to discuss the movie during dinner.
Please update your RSVP and guestcount if you will not be attending!
