Movie time and Lunch or Snack

"The Butler" tells the story of a White House butler who served eight American presidents over three decades. The film traces the dramatic changes that swept American society during this time, from the civil rights movement to Vietnam and beyond, and how those changes affected this man’s life and family. Forest Whitaker stars as the butler with Robin Williams as Dwight Eisenhower, John Cusack as Richard Nixon, Alan Rickman as Ronald Reagan, James Marsden as John F. Kennedy, Liev Schreiber as Lyndon B. Johnson, and many more. Academy Award® nominated Lee Daniels ("Precious") directs and co-wrote the script with Emmy®-award winning Danny Strong ("Game Change").

We will meet outside the Harkins Theater, 16046 N. Arrowhead Fountains Center Dr. (83rd and Mariner's Way) in Peoria and then go to lunch at the Corner Bakery at 16222 N. 83rd Avenue (South of Bell). Check later for time. This is supposed to be an incredible movie so don't miss out!

    Thanks Cindy for organizing these outings. I do enjoy them and was sorry I had to leave for another engagement. I did want to hear others' comments on the movie. Will see you Friday at Birt's.

    The movie was great. It sparked some good conversation afterwards of where we were and if we remembered some of the events depicted in the movie. It was nice meeting some new members and discussing future activities. Thanks, Cindy, for all of your work.

    Those who can't make the movie can still meet us for lunch or snack afterwards. Time to be determined.
