"Much Ado About Nothing" at BETHESDA ROW CINEMA

DINNER AT "MON AMI GABI": 6:00 pm MOVIE: 7:30 pm
Let's meet for an early dinner at "Mon Ami Gabi" at 6:00pm and proceed to go and see "Much Ado About Nothing" at the Bethesda Row theatre which is next door. Feel free to come to one or both of the events! A nice opportunity to mix and mingle with "Shakespeare Lovers" members on this July 4 weekend! Afsaneh

    It was most enjoyable -- I was quite surprised at how good it was and how well the language flowed even though it was filmed as if it were today (in a rich person's Hollywood home). Afsaneh, he is a comic book writer?! Good of you to pick that up. And I also liked that it was in black and white. Enjoyed having dinner with you, Howard and Sonya, too

      Director of 2012's "Avengers" too - apparently, a massive hit. The Home in the movie, was the director's own home I have since discovered - and the whole movie was shot in 12 days.

    Sensational! The intimacy captured in this film version was quite something!! Movie versions of Shakespeare's plays often distract you with too much scenery, music, and non-verbal activities that would be going on. JOSS WHEDON, the director of this version of "Much Ado About Nothing", happens to also be a comic book writer, which gave me my A-ha! moment! The intimacy of the conversations, the faces often in close up view, did indeed have a picture book quality to them! And of course, Black and White was genius for getting our focus further on the words, rather than any technicolor wizardry! A pure delight! WE all enjoyed it! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

      Great. I'm sure you'll enjoy the whole ambience, and you'd be a lovely addition.

    This is iffy, though. I'd love to come but I have to work towards a publication deadline on Monday. Won't know till later if it precludes Sat. at cinema.

    Hi all,

    Thanks for the suggestions:

    So sorry I can't make it! Would really love to have joined you all, but I'll be out of town for the 4th of July weekend :(.

      Another time! See you on the 14th! Enjoy the 4th weekend!

    Afsaneh, Do you think we should get our tickets on-line in advance? Or at 6 pm when we meet for dinner? (Not sure how popular this will be and whether there is a risk of the 7:30 show being sold out. It is a Sat. night.) Betsy

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
