Gravity: An IMAX 3D Experience

Let's have a movie night! I've been hearing really good things about Gravity, especially as regards to the science involved. The movie starts at 7:30. We will meet upstairs in the lobby/snack area about 15 minutes before. The movie is 1:31 long, so even with previews, we should be out by 9:30.

Official Description: Dr. Ryan Stone is a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky. But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone - tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth...and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.

    Hey, guys, so sorry about the poor planning. The movie was great though, and the after discussion very stimulating. Next time I will know better!

    What "age appropriate" would you say this is?

      Looks like we missed meeting up with you (and tickets) due to a mixup in the showtimes, Kjerstin. Sorry about that. Some of us are in the 7:50 non-IMAX show -- if you're hunting, three rows up from the entrance and to screen left. If not, perhaps another time we'll manage to actually meet.

    I am here in shorts, Lumos jacket, and flopflops near snack lines. :)

      Yeah, Caroline and I missed getting tickets as a result. A lesson for future attempts, I guess. We found Helen and Mark in the same boat, and are heading for the 7:50 Real3D show.

    I assume the entrance to this theater is on Swanson Drive? It is such a warren of streets and parking lots over there, I have not noticed a theater before.

      ...did "upstairs" get truncated? Autocorrect + cranky meetup App = poor commenting.

      I'll come early and stumble around. If you don't see me by 25 after or so, call[masked]

    Sounds like after watching this, I may never go up in a spaceship again! I can make it on Saturday.

    Already saw the movie; a good watch for sure! Have fun.
    And appears to be a hidden meaning to it, let me know if you found it ;)

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
