Hi everyone! This Tuesday let's watch OZ: THE GREAT AND POWERFUL (in 3D), the twist on The Wizard of Oz that tells the story of how the wizard (James Franco) got to Oz in the first place. This movie has received somewhat mixed reviews (running just 62% on rottentomatoes.com), and sounds like it has an interesting premise and terrific visuals but somewhat lacklustre story development. Still, it should make for an exciting and entertaining ride, as well as a new perspective on an old classic. So, please come see it with us!
SHOWTIME: 7:00 pm on Tuesday March 19 at the Varsity Cinema. (movie length = 2h07m)
MEETING TIME: 6:30-6:40pm
MEETING LOCATION: At the Varsity Cinema, just past the ticket-takers, by the customer service desk. Look for tall hairy Jeff with a yellow MEETUP sign.
TICKETS: This movie costs $10.99 (or $9.89 with a Scene card) since it is in 3D; you may wish to purchase your ticket in advance at http://www.cineplex.com/Theatres/TheatreDetails/Cineplex-Odeon-Varsity-and-VIP-Cinemas.aspx
MOVIE INFO AND REVIEWS: See http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/oz_the_great_and_powerful/
AFTER THE MOVIE: Let's all discuss the movie for a few minutes as a group right in the cinema lobby. Then, interested persons are invited for drinks and socialising, probably at the Foxes Den bar at 1075 Bay Street.
I hope to see you there!
UPCOMING: I am thinking of perhaps taking the following week (March 26) off. Let me know if you would like to guest-host then.
Best wishes, Jeff
