The movie starts at 4 PM, and is two hours long, so we'll eat at 6 PM. (Come early to buy your ticket, $7.) After the film, our group will meet in the lobby, and walk over to the eateries!
There have been good reviews of ARGO, which is a true story! Theatre is in the shopping center at the NE corner of Scottsdale and Shea Blvd.
Posting this as a "lite dinner" because we are going to have a selection of places right across from the movie theatre: Pita Jungle, Coffee Plantation, & Gelato Spot. (The Plantation also has sandwiches). There are outdoor patio chairs where we can do our socializing. Of course, if you want to go to a nearby restaurant you can team up with some friends and do that too.
