With only 14 people voting, Blue Jasmine is the top choice with 59%, Elysium was second with 56%. Movie actually starts at 7:10.

If you want to have dinner with others, please coordinate in the comments section.

FYI, here were the choices:

Blue Jasmine (Cam7) - Woody Allen's latest, but more importantly, stars Cate Blanchett.

The Conjuring (Cam12) - on the list because of Vera Farminga (Up In the Air, The Departed, Higher Ground).

Fruitvale Station (Cam12)

Hannah Arendt (Cam3) - docu-drama about war crimes trial of Eichmann.

The Way, Way Back (Cam12) - one more chance - it got lots of votes last month.

The Act of Killing (Cam3) - documentary about anti-communist death squads in Indonesia, post-1965.

Elysium (Cam7,12)

Lovelace (Cam12)

    Blue Jasmine is a noteworthy film. The creation of a story in which I the viewer played a role is what all film should aspire to. I loved seeing several of my prejudices splashed out against the big screen.

    This Film was a surprise - no woody allen formula but a good remake of a classic play/film with a strong sense of acting, directing, with a fresh perspective and plot line.

    Great night! Really felt like I was watching live theatre at times tonight. Cate Blanchett gives an amazing performance. I really liked all the character dynamics and sub-plots, a really wonderful ensemble. Thanks everyone for a great discussion - as always it felt like we could have talked movies all night. Thanks meetup peeps!

    fair movie. Fantastic acting by Kate Blanchett. Felt like i had just had a nervous breakdown myself by the time it was over.

    Hi all, I have seen Blue Jasmine (great) and I plan to see Fruitvale Station which is playing about the same time. Then I will head over to the coffee shop for the chattering.

    Sure I can be there early to round up our Indie lovers ! Glen you said the movie starts at 7:10, is this the opening night?

    I'll be inside the lobby closer to the glass entry doors--look for the woman with lavender in her hair...say 6:45?

    I won't be there with my sign. So if you're new, please arrive early and don't be shy while you try to find the group.
    Anyone looking for dinner company before the film please coordinate here. Have fun!

    OK, I hardly ever join in these conversations, and now it's twice for one event! I thought I'd complicate matters by saying it might actually work to our advantage to see a downtown film. (Not in the least prejudiced by the fact that I will be downtown that afternoon for work.) After the film and discussion, some of us might want to walk over to the DeAnza Hotel, where Kat Parra will be singing. I've heard her a number of times, and she has a beautiful voice!

    Friday, August 9th from 8:30-12:30 Kat Parra Latin World Ensemble
    Hedley Club, Hotel DeAnza
    233 West Santa Clara St.,
    Downtown San Jose, CA[masked]

    Agree about wanting to see Fruitvale Station. Also saw The Way, Way Back... Way Back!

    I've really been wanting to see Fruitvale Station, but can understand people's concerns about parking downtown during the Jazz Festival. Perhaps we can arrange to see it another time. Already saw and liked The Way, Way Back, so wouldn't see it again.

    Can only make the camera 7. Impossible to make those down town San Jose movies on a Friday (traffic)

    Shucks....life intrudes

    Also, remember that the San Jose Jazz Festival is next weekend (8/9-8/11) so with Camera 3 and Camera 12, it might be hard to find parking.

    I nominate "Blue Jasmine" as one of the movies to vote on. It starts paying this week.
