Last minute addition! Turns out I am free this Saturday and thought I would love to see this flick. I adored the first one and if it is even half as good as the last one, then it will be great! By the way, does anyone know how I can get a couple of those minions to come and clean my house? I don't usually worry about reviews, but if you are curious it got 75% at Rotten tomatoes.
I will be at the theater by 6:30 and we will head in for seats at 7. The movie start time is 7:20.
That will give us 20 minutes to take turns with snack and restroom runs, while others guard the seats.
I encourage people to buy their tickets in advance so you don't get there to find them sold out.
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.
$$$$Managing the after event is much easier if everyone brings cash, so please plan ahead if you want to go out with the group after.$$$
