Dinner and a Movie - Saving Mr. Banks

Lets meet at Tambellini's in Bridgeville, and then see a movie at the
Chartiers Valley Stadium 18 - Saving Mr Bank starring Tom Hanks.

Summary of Movie:
When Walt Disney's daughters begged him to make a movie of their favorite book, P.L. Travers' "Mary Poppins," he made them a promise - one that he didn't realize would take 20 years to keep. In his quest to obtain the rights, Walt comes up against a curmudgeonly, uncompromising writer who has absolutely no intention of letting her beloved magical nanny get mauled by the Hollywood machine. But, as the books stop selling and money grows short, Travers reluctantly agrees to go to Los Angeles to hear Disney's plans for the adaptation. For those two short weeks in 1961, Walt Disney pulls out all the stops. Armed with imaginative storyboards and chirpy songs from the talented Sherman brothers, Walt launches an all-out onslaught on P.L. Travers, but the prickly author doesn't budge. He soon begins to watch helplessly as Travers becomes increasingly immovable and the rights begin to move further away from his grasp. It is only when he reaches into his own childhood that Walt discovers the truth about the ghosts that haunt her, and together they set Mary Poppins free to ultimately make one of the most endearing films in cinematic history. Movie starts at 7:10 PM

    I had a great time at dinner, opted to linger over coffee and conversation rather than rush off to the movies, and really enjoyed the company of some interesting new friends. Thank you for organizing, Bonnie.

    • Arlene

      Yes, I remember you, Julie! I think you might have been actually sitting in front of me in the middle. I sat in the top back row in the middle. There was a row between us. Am I right?

    I am sorry for the short notice, but I must cancel. Something came up that I have to do. Hopefully next time. Thanks.

    Just wondering if anyone else who is on the waitlist for dinner would like to meet up separately for dinner before the movie? I realize we won't know until the last minute if we clear the waitlist or not, but I was thinking of maybe having a backup plan. I'd still like to join the group for the movie either way, but it's Friday night --- and I'd still like to go out to dinner.

    Dee, this is the theater in the Chartiers Valley Shopping Center, it's behind Giant Eagle and KMart if that helps you. It's right on Washington Pike/Route 50, the main road thru town. Until recently it was called the Destinta Theatres. Tambellinis is in Bridgeville, right off Bower Hill Road, I'd guess about a mile.

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.
