Les Miserables

UPDATE 1/1/13:  Oh my goodness!  I am losing the battle against my cold and will not be able to attend.  I'm really sorry.  Cindy has graciously offered to host the event.  She is short with short black hair and she says she will be looking around for people who look lost.  The plan is still to buy tickets together at 1:30 so we can sit together.  Thanks Cindy!!!

UPDATE 12/31:  We will still be meeting at 1 for a 1:40 show.  The Maple has assigned seating for this showing so PLEASE, if you want to sit with all of us, please join us FIRST and then we will buy tickets together and near each other.  I will be trying to work with the new owner in the next few weeks to see if there is a way to reserve seats before the event, but for now that is the only way we can sit together.  So I'll be in the coffee area, waiting for you to show up to buy tickets together at 1:30.  Is that clear?  Hope so!

OK - let's see if we can "christen" the Maple on New Year's Day.  I saw this production live in London and didn't like it.  I'm hoping the movie version is better!  We are shooting for the early afternoon showtime, gathering for coffee before, and dinner after if people are interested.  I will post the actual time once the theater does.  So if you don't have plans, aren't too hung over, or not a college football fan, please join us!

Les Misérables is the motion-picture adaptation of the beloved glIn obal stage sensation seen by more than 60 million people in 42 countries and in 21 languages around the globe and still breaking box-office records everywhere in its 27th year. Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption–a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s (Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever. In December 2012, the world’s longest-running musical brings its power to the big screen in Tom Hooper’s sweeping and spectacular interpretation of Victor Hugo’s epic tale. With international superstars and beloved songs–including “I Dreamed a Dream,” “Bring Him Home,” “One Day More” and “On My Own”–Les Misérables, the show of shows, is now reborn as the cinematic musical experience of a lifetime.

    Love the renovated Maple, except for the policy of seating-after-the-movie-begins.

    Couldn't wait...saw it w/ a few buds tonite. The Maple is the perfect place to enjoy this long, dramatic, emotional journey - stretch back and let it enwrap you...

      I'm seeing it again tonight with a friend. 2x might be enough for me, although I really loved it.

      Well I hope you're seeing it in a roomy theater, for a 3hr movie, the Bham 8 crampy seating was rather uncomfortable.

    I've enjoyed the theater version of Les Miz and the previews of this film version look terrific. I look forward to meeting you all and getting your impressions of the film.
