Pain & Gain (7PM Show)

  • Apr 26, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This looks like a pretty silly movie....but what the heck I could use a good laugh.

Showtime is at 7, I will be at the theater by 6 and we will head in for seats by 6:30.  The movie is showing upstairs so look for the group at the tables by the big window at the top of the escalator.

In general, I arrive at the theater an hour before the show to start gathering people, and we head in for seats about 30 minutes before the show, so we can sit together. This also allows us to take turns getting snacks, etc., before the previews start.

About Buying Advanced Tickets:

  • I encourage everyone to consider buying your tickets in advance.  We see most movies on opening weekend and they do often sell out.
  • is the site that this movie theater uses.  Be warned though, there are sometimes hiccups to the system, especially the mobile app. 
  • Not being able to complete a transaction does not mean they are sold out.  Please don't post a comment to the site that the movie is sold out.  Zip me an email and I will check it out. If it is indeed sold out, I will let people know.

If you miss the group ahead of time, come find us after. We gather in the hallway outside of the theater we just saw the movie in, to discuss the film a bit, allow for restroom breaks and to get a head count of all those who would like to go out after for drinks and munchies.

$$$$Managing the after event is much easier if everyone brings cash, so please plan ahead if you want to go out with the group after.$$$

    really sorry i couldn't attend. admit that i appreciate your review. 'terrible' is not a common adjective used to describe a film so when it's used, that means the film is definitely not worth $$. THANKS!

    Small group showed to "enjoy" this little that was really terrible! Good cast and it starts out funny....but it goes downhill rather fast. Marky Mark was awesome as the ever hopeful "brains" of the operation. Oh well thanks for coming out to watch it with me.

      Agreed. For the most part it was a lousy, often disgusting, movie, but I liked certain aspects of the film, and thought certain individual scenes and sequences worked well. I thought this was Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's strongest acting job to date, and Tony Shalhoub was terrific. [SPOILER ALERT-SPOILER ALERT-SPOILER ALERT]The whole scene where he wakes up in the hospital and tries, exasperatedly, to convince the cops that a bunch of losers have just tried to kill him is just hysterical.
