FREE advance movie screening - Philomena

  • November 25, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Fifth Avenue Cinemas

Hi guys!

Guest list is now closed. Thanks!

*** THEATER CHANGE***

We are hosting an advance screening of the film Philomena on Monday, November 25, 2013 at FIFTH AVE. Cinemas @ 7pm.

Synopsis and trailer are below.

Thanks!

Based on the 2009 investigative book by BBC correspondent Martin Sixsmith, The Lost Child of Philomena Lee, PHILOMENA focuses on the efforts of Philomena Lee (Dench), mother to a boy conceived out of wedlock — something her Irish-Catholic community didn't have the highest opinion of — and given away for adoption in the United States. In following church doctrine, she was forced to sign a contract that wouldn't allow for any sort of inquiry into the son's whereabouts. After starting a family years later in England and, for the most part, moving on with her life, Lee meets Sixsmith (Coogan), a BBC reporter with whom she decides to discover her long-lost son.

    This would have been my first Meetup with this group. Sadly, despite posting several messages, noone ever got back to me about tickets or to clarify the actual location of the venue (which changed without explination), so I did not attend.

    I'm pretty certain that the original venue for this Movie was Esplanade North Van but here it seems to have been shifted to a Burrard Street location.

    I emailed on friday, but did not receive a confirmation? Steph, did you get my email?

    Hi. Got a confirmation email but no ticket as well. Also, the instructions were to say how much tickets you wanted in your email so I asked for two, so I still don't know if I can bring my friend along.

    So usually when I confirm for these I get an email with the ticket. I went to print ticket and it said to email. I am wondering where I print the ticket I don't want to schedule going and take time off to see it without the ticket to know I'll actually get in. Anybody know how to make sure I have a ticket? Also thank you eOne I love all these invites to preview your new films it is an honour and I haven't been unimpressed yet you make great movies.
