Please join us as we watch TOTAL RECALL (view the trailer), the reboot of the 1990 classic. The film is directed by Len Wiseman (UNDERWORLD, UNDERWORLD: EVOLUTION, LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD) and written by Kurt Wimmer (THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR, EQUILIBRIUM, LAW ABIDING CITIZEN) and Mark Bomback (LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD, RACE TO WITCH MOUNTAIN). The film stars Colin Farrell (AMERICAN OUTLAWS, MINORITY REPORT, THE RECRUIT), Kate Beckinsale (UNDERWORLD, THE AVIATOR), Jessica Biel (BLADE: TRINITY, THE ILLUSIONIST), Bill Nighy (LOVE ACTUALLY, UNDERWORLD, PIRATE RADIO), Bryan Cranston ("From the Earth to the Moon", "Breaking Bad"), and John Cho (STAR TREK, "Flash Forward").
Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell), even though he's got a beautiful wife (Kate Beckinsale) who he loves, the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life - real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man. Finding himself on the run from the police – controlled by Chancellor Cohaagen (Bryan Cranston), the leader of the free world – Quaid teams up with a rebel fighter (Jessica Biel) to find the head of the underground resistance (Bill Nighy) and stop Cohaagen. The line between fantasy and reality gets blurred and the fate of his world hangs in the balance as Quaid discovers his true identity, his true love, and his true fate.
The movie, like the 1990 Schwarzennegger classic before it, is based on Philip K. Dick's short story: "We Can Remember It For You Wholesale".
UPDATE (PLEASE READ):
We'll be attending the 3:35 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, Aug. 19" and the 3:35 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 #: [masked] (5 leading 0s). We'll be going to Romano's Macaroni Grill for dinner around 6:00 PM. If you plan to attend, you must RSVP separately for August'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 3:00 PM, 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!
