I went to see the Pompeii exhibit at the Museum of Science and was very impressed with the artifacts I saw there. I wondered what it must have been like to live there back then. Here is my chance to find out. I hope they incorporate showing some of the day to day life, so I can see some of those artifacts in action. In any case, should be a cool flick!
The show time is 7:30. I will be at the theater by 6:30 and we will go in for seats at 7. The movie is showing upstairs, so we will gather at the tables, near the windows, at the top of the escalator.
Heading in for seats about 30 minutes before the show makes it easier for us to sit together. This also allows us to take turns getting snacks, etc., before the previews start.
Tickets are available on Fandango now. I have been seeing lots of ads for this and I expect it will be a sold out show.
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.
$$$$Managing the after event is much easier if everyone brings cash, so please plan ahead if you want to go out with the group after. We will be splitting one check for the group.$$$
