Argo movie night

I am trying this meetup again this week as it is supposed to be one of the best movies this year. Based on a true story, it takes place when the militants in Tehran storm the U S embassy. The 6 diplomats escape & hide in the Canadian embassy. Tony Mendez (Ben Affleck) goes there with an idea of making a fake movie & the 6 diplomats pose as his crew to escape. It sounds serious, but I heard it has a lot of humor, also. Directed and starring Ben Affleck (with a bad haircut). Costars Alan Arkin, John Goodman & Bryan Cranston.

    Very good--kept you on edge of the seat. Loved the way Mr Affleck merged real newsreels from back then with the movie. Had actual newscasts with Walter Cronkite, Ted Koppel & a very young Diane Sawyer. Also loved the music from 1979 (Led Zeppelin, etc) from my day.

    Just in case, my cell is[masked]-9698. Also, if you're running late, the movie doesn't start until 7 even later with previews, so you can meet us upstairs in the movie, also.

      Not a problem. Katherine has strep & Debi Mays dropped out, so we went from 6 to 3--Me, Debra Mullins & Helen, but at least I won't be by myself. I'm not as good as hosting movie night as you are, but a lot of people have already seen it anyway. I'll let you know about the movie.
