Smashed at Landmark E Street - Meet at 5pm

Smashed is a dramatic comedy about fidelity—and what it means to be committed to someone, to love someone, and to need to change your life... when your partner isn't capable of change. Kate (Mary Elizabeth Winstead, in a stellar performance) and Charlie (Aaron Paul) are a young married couple whose bond is built on a mutual love of music, laughter and drinking... especially the drinking. When Kate's drinking leads her to dangerous places and her job as a school teacher is put into jeopardy, she decides to join AA and get sober. With the help of her friend and sponsor Jenny (Octavia Spencer), and the awkward but well-intentioned vice principal at her school (Nick Offerman), Kate takes steps toward improving her health and life. Sobriety isn't as easy as Kate had anticipated, though. Her new lifestyle brings to the surface a troubling relationship with her mother (Mary Kay Place), forces her to face the lies she's told her employer, and calls into question whether or not her relationship with Charlie is built on love. Directed and co-written by James Ponsoldt.

    Just joined and trying to figure out when to get my ticket. At the door, before we meet at 5? Restaurant is optional afterward?

      Yes, we'll meet at the top of the stairs behind the box office. I will likely start sending people down as soon as they arrive, given the size of the group and uncertainty as to which theater E Street has selected. You can buy a ticket when you arrive provided the show does not sell out. We do not keep extra tickets on hand, and dinner afterward is optional.

    I've also pre-emptively made a reservation at Asia Nine, a pan-Asian fusion restaurant a block or so from the theater for 7:30pm. The menu is online at http://www.asianine.com/menu.html. They have large tables and have successfully accommodated film club groups in the past.

      Any chance the restaurant might be willing to let us move the tables around, maybe into a circle, so all of us can discuss the movie together?

      I can certainly ask the restaurant when I confirm with them tomorrow, but I can't make any promises as to what they'll do.

    Any chance the restaurant might be willing to move the tables around into a circle so it will be easier for us to discuss the movie all together?

    Given the size of the group, it might not be a bad idea to pre-purchase your tickets if you're sure you're going to attend. You can do so at the following link - https://tickets.landmarktheatres.com/Ticketing.aspx?ShowDate=10/21/2012&TheatreID=264

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
