GUNGA DIN - Starring Cary Grant Just $3.00 (Mirvish Village)

On Monday, May 20th we will be showing the classic movie, Gunga Din from 1939. Loosely based on a poem by Rudyard Kipling this story takes place during a Thuggee (where the word "Thug" comes from) uprising against the British. Three fun loving Sergeants played by Cary Grant, Victor MacLagen, and Douglas Fairbanks Jr. are doing just fine until one of them decides that it's time to get married and leave the service. The other two try to trick him back into rejoining.

Gunga Din, played by Sam Jaffe is a lowly water boy that befriends Sergeant Cutter, played by Cary Grant. Din would love nothing more than to become a British soldier but it's not permitted. Cutter and Gunga Din find a temple of gold where they learn of a major attack on the British being planned by the Thuggee.

The movie will begin at 7:30 PM. The Central Bar and Grill is generously giving us this space from 6:00 PM until approximately 10:00 PM, so please, do your best to support them by having Dinner, an Appetizer, a Drink or any combination of the 3. Their food is actually Quite Good and Really Inexpensive. Their 2 specialty dishes are Pork Chops and Salmon. I particularly like their Grilled Chicken Sandwich. You will be hard pressed to find a better Dinner and Movie deal anywhere!!

This night will also be shared with the Life Begins at 40 Social Group and Thumbs Up Theater Group. If you happen to be in one of these other groups please RSVP just One Time.

Everyone is responsible for their own bill.

Separate cheques highly recommended.

There is a meetup fee of $3.00

Directions - Located one block west of Bathurst and Bloor. From your location go to and click "Get Directions." The destination address is 603 Markham Street  

Transit - Take the Bloor/Danforth Subway Line to Bathurst Station. Walk one block west along Bloor to Markham St. and you're there. For further TTC info call[masked]-INFO (4636) and dial O to speak with a live person.

Parking - There's a parking lot on Markham Street, just north of Bloor. I believe it's a flat rate of only $4 after 6PM. There's street (meter) parking on Bloor St., and if you're lucky you'll get a spot right in Mirvish Village (Markham St. between Bloor and Lennox). If you're parking on the street be sure to read the signs carefully to avoid a fine.

We'll see you at the movies!!
