Safety Not Guaranteed: Cedar Lee Theater / Grotto Wine Bar Shaker Square

  • Jul 8, 2012 · 4:15 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This is a really quirky movie that I hope you may enjoy.  The Plain Dealer loved it.  It might not be a deep movie, but is worth some chuckles and some discussion on what it all means.

4:25 MOVIE (TIME COULD CHANGE)

Meet near the entrance door to the theater 5 minutes ahead of time or look for the group inside the theater or meet us afterward near the theater door.

6:30 EATS AND DISCUSSION

We will head over to Grotto's patio (weather permitting) for delicious food and wine.  It is about a 10 minute drive from the theater.

(216)[masked] 13101 Shaker Square

 

Tips for improving your restaurant experience:

  • Print a map or enter the address in your GPS ahead of time.
  • Bring CASH to pay for your meal.
  • When you arrive, ask to sit at the "Movie Group" table.

 

DESCRIPTION
"WANTED: Someone to go back in time with me. This is not a joke. You get paid after we get back. Must bring your own weapons. SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED. I have only done this once before."An unusual classified ad inspires three cynical Seattle magazine employees to go looking for the story behind it. They discover its author is a mysterious eccentric named Kenneth, a likable but paranoid supermarket clerk, who believes he's solved the riddle of time travel and intends to depart soon. Together, they embark on a hilarious, smart, and unexpectedly heartfelt journey.

REVIEW

"A charming movie that blends comedy, romance and science fiction -- not necessarily the most obvious combination of genres, but one that director Colin Trevorrow and writer Derek Connolly manage with assured ease."

REVIEW

NOTE TO FIRST TIME GOERS
If this is your first movie with the group, there is no fee to attend.

This group has been successful partly because members have a genuine interest in meeting fellow independent movie goers. We don't always know where to look for you, especially first timers.  Consider posting your picture and printing out the pictures of the attendees to help find everyone easier.

We have multiple meeting places:

  • Entrance door to the movie in the theater hallway 5-10 minutes before the movie starts
  • By the entrance door or ticket office after the movie
  • Reserved table at the restaurant under the name "Movie Group"

We don't always sit together in the movie theater but if you see a bunch of people talking about good movies they have seen, it is probably us. Please join in. We are always happy to get new people involved.

NOTE TO ALL
In the world of Independent films, it is recommended that you check back a few days before the event to make sure the movie, restaurant, location or time has not changed.

    A genuinely good movie. Not exactly what you might think, but isn't that true about life?

    Enjoyed the movie and the discussion afterwards. The Grotto had good food and the outside dining was very nice.

    Great discussion over half-price wine. What more could one ask for?

    Funny, sad and well acted with interesting metaphor about trying to go back to fix things in your past. Writers seemed to not know how to end it. the usual excellent conversation with different opinions about how the movie really ended.
