The Great Gatsby Movie

We've all read the book, so now let's go check out the new movie adaptation of The Great Gatsby. Love it or hate it, Baz Luhrmann will be sure to give us a lot to talk about.

The movie starts at 7 pm. (It is in 2-D, NOT 3-D.) Let's gather in the front lobby at 6:45 pm. If you arrive late and don't get to see us before the movie, don't worry, we can just catch up with each other after the movie.

Everyone is responsible for purchasing their own ticket. I recommend doing it ahead of time just in case it sells out.

You are welcome to bring along significant others, family, & friends.

After the movie, we can grab a few drinks at one of the nearby bar & grills to discuss!

    Hated the first 20+ minutes as kind of Baz' excess but once JG was introduced & story was underway, I was charmed. Thought it was excellent! Carey M. was fantastic as Daisy and Leo (not one of my favs either, Craig) seemed a perfect JG. May go back now to see the Robert Redford version.

    Hey, Nerds: For those who would like to have dinner before the movie, we will be meeting at the San Antonio Grill at 5:30. If that doesn't tickle your fancy, we will also be going out for drinks after the movie. You can eat dinner then, too, if you like. Or hell, why not eat dinner before and after? That's probably what I'll do. See you later!

    Should we dress for the Gatsby period?

      Mikhail: Be sure to fill it with good rye whiskey, not vodka! ;-)

      Craig, the words “good” and “whiskey” are antonyms. I already filled it with good “Smirnoff-Lemon” vodka. Would be great with Sprite and pop-corn. ;-)

    For those who would like to take the Metro, the theater is right across the street from the Eisenhower stop (Yellow & Blue).

    Got my ticket! BTW, parking on a Saturday night in their lot is not easy ... just FYI for those unfamiliar w/this theater. Can't wait! :)

    Looks like my plans have changed, so I'll be at your little party, hate-watching Leo! Bwah-ha-ha!!

    Alas, I have another gig that night. Since I'm not a Leo fan, and Baz Luhrmann just doesn't excite me, I'm happy to skip this one. Enjoy, Nerds!
