The show we are watching is Transcendence.
Three scientists - Max and the husband and wife team, Will and Evelyn - have been developing a programming code for the world's first fully self-aware computer. When a group of anti-technology terrorists assassinate Will, Evelyn uploads his brain into a prototype supercomputer. Although she at first finds the experiment seems to have gone wrong, before too long Evelyn finds Will responding in computer form. She goes on to connect Will to the Internet so he can help make further scientific breakthroughs. Will asks Evelyn to connect a microphone and a camera up to the computer so he can see and speak to her as well. When the anti-technology organization finds out, they try to steal the supercomputer and destroy it, but Will no longer needs the computer to survive.
Drinks and dinner are ritual :D
The amount to transfer is $10. I will announce the collection details after the end of Divergent: (http://www.meetup.com/The-Movie-Food-Drink-Club/events/157496412/) to avoid confusion of payment. There is a high chance that you will not be seating with the main group if you decide to buy on your own. Will really appreciate that those who are interested to transfer asap rather than wait to the last minute. You are strongly encourage to transfer early to join in the fun at the wasapp group. Of course you can choose to stay on the sidelines and not join the wasapp group if you prefer not to :D

Agenda (Rough time line subject to changes)
[masked] Meet at Wilkie edge Hans café for coffee
[masked] Meet for dinner at Xin Wang Café or Manhanttan Fish market dependent on your sub group (Electronics and Firewall will be at Xin Wang Café, Gigabyte and Hypertext will be at Manhattan)
9.10-???? Taking pictures PLUS Post Movie drinks and PARTY!!!
I will start to distribute the middle row first. Those who come later will be seated at the side :D
Priority will be given to those that answered the questions when RSVP.
Take note that your RSVP here merely indicates your interest; while making payment confirms your seat at this event!
As I am doing this on a volunteer basis (inclusive of all organisers in this meetup), I hope you guys will transfer early rather than wait for last minute. I will try to buy cheaper tickets via whatever credit cards promo available. It can be a substantial cost savings for a big group and thus I will go down to buy on the spot usually. My regular crowd will know that I always refund whatever amount excess.
However anyone who transfer after the deadline will need to pay the usual price and extra 1 dollar booking fee as I am going to buy your ticket via internet from henceforth. I hope you guys understand that I cannot go down multiple times just to satisfy people who disregard the deadline. Thus the price difference between the discounted tickets (for those who pay early) and the extra (for people who pay late) can be between 2-4 dollars.
Date line for the transfer is 14th Apr 2014 at 5pm.
Seek your cooperation that I will need to have some form of structure organsiation (in terms of dress code, sub groups and etc) if the event swells beyond a certain number of pax. If there are no form of organisation, it will be extremely difficult for the first timers to interact in a crowd of 30-60 plus new faces. Not to mention that I will not be able to function as an effective host to these people as I am giving out tickets. If you do not like structured events, it would be advisable not to attend those that is hosted by me when the RSVP is beyond 40.
This is a meetup to watch Transcendence, the 1st mainstream Hollywood movie about the technological singularity. I would like to have a discussion after the movie, so I hope we can get enough people to book 1 entire cinema hall (at least 70 people). Please get your friends to join! The movie is scheduled for release in mid-late April
