Announcing a new Meetup for Cleveland Independent Movie Goers!

What: Fair Game / Stone Oven Caf?

Fee: $1.50 or $5 for 2010.

Where: Stone Oven Caf?
2267 Lee Road
Cleveland, OH 44108
[masked]

Plame's status as a CIA agent was revealed by White House officials allegedly out to discredit her husband after he wrote a 2003 New York Times op-ed piece saying that the Bush administration had manipulated intelligence about weapons of mass destruction to justify the invasion of Iraq.




[ 6:00 EATS
The Stone Oven is self service. Great sandwiches, salads, etc. We usually sit at the high tables in the middle. It is about a 5 minute walk to the theater.

7-7:30 MOVIE
Meet at the ENTRANCE DOOR 5 minutes ahead of time or look for the group inside the theater or meet us afterward outside the entrance door in the lobby.

AFTER MOVIE DISCUSSION
Jimmy's, at 2195 Lee, is a block left of the theater and is expecting us afterward for coffee, beer and beet cake.

DESCRIPTION
Fair Game follows in the tradition of All The President's Men as presenting a probing look into an important political issue in the form of a crackling thriller. Director Doug Liman uses his Bourne Identity/Mr & Mrs Smith skills to move the true story of exposure of Valerie Plame (Naomi Watts), the wife of US senator Joe Wilson (Sean Penn), as a CIA undercover agent by the Bush Administration at breakneck speed. Plame's research based on her contacts in Iraq had put serious doubts on the existence of WMD in Iraq, which was not in line with White House's view point. They thus considered her "fair game" for discrediting and public exposure. Fair Game is fascinating for all those interested in the mechanism of power and use/abuse of it; and is also a riveting piece of film making
FEE
Goes toward charges incurred for using the MeetUp website. You can access PayPal or pay your fee to the Organizer at the event.

THEATRE LINK:
Cleveland Cinemas (Cedar-Lee), Cleveland Heights, 2163 Lee Road. http://www.clevelandcinemas.com/cinemadrilldown.asp?intCin=2921

PARKING: There is metered/garage parking in back of the theatre and metered parking in back of Stone Oven, so bring a few quarters. Credit cards work in the garage.
A free parking lot is on Edgewood road, one block west of Lee road at Cedar.

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.

We have multiple meeting places: 1. Entrance door to the movie in the theater hallway 5-10 minutes before the movie starts, 2. By the Marquee (or entrance door) after the movie, or 3. Reserved table at a 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.
