Movie Time: THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER MITTY

  • Silver City Polo Park

    817 St. James St, Winnipeg, MB (map)

    49.887582 -97.201087

  • CANCELLED DUE TO LACK OF INTEREST - time too late in the day.

     

    Please reselect the movie you want to see. Unfortunately they have changed the time for THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER MITTY movie to 10pm. I would rather go out earlier than that. Still there could be some that want to see this movie at 10pm.

    I was looking for some feedback on whether you are still interested in seeing this movie or want to see an earlier one. So far the responses are to see a movie at around 7pm.

    I will do something different since I know we all have different preferences in movies.

    I will post the movies as meet ups that people have told me they want to see. Select between them.

    ***

    For something a little warmer, lets go check out a movie!

    The theme of this movie is on enhancing and adding adventure to your life. What a great message to start 2014 off with for this great group of people. 

    Ben Stiller directs and stars in THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER MITTY, an all-audience feel-good adventure that celebrates the true potential in everyone.

    Walter Mitty, an ordinary guy, lives out his fantasies in highly comedic and outrageous daydreams. When fate intervenes, Walter decides to jump into life and heads out on a global journey that turns his real life into an adventure more extraordinary than he could ever have imagined.

    Winner for the 2013 National Board of Review Award for Top Ten FilmsAwards

    Start time: 10pm

    Meet up with other members to see this movie at 9:30pm.

    No $2 Meet up fee.

    Rats. I was thinking of making a last minute decision and coming. 9:30 pm is good for me. I find anything around 6:00 or 6:30 pm just too early. I tend to work on Saturdays and don't usually finish up until around 6:00 pm, then I have to get ready to go out and allow for driving time. Oh well, I guess that's what happens to us night-hawks. The movie would get out around 11:30 pm or midnight, and on weekends I'm easily up until 2:00 am or later (earlier?) anyway. See you all again another time.

    Maybe someone needs to start up a group for late-night, night-hawk, people?

    And it looks like August: Osage County is also around that time.

    • Stacey

      I have this concern that everyone will choose a different movie. I hope that doesn't happen.

      January 14, 2014

    • Margaret

      I know! Because part of the fun is getting to see our Out and About friends again.

      January 15, 2014

    It's a shame it has to be so late.

    • Stacey

      Does anyone want to see this for the 10pm showing? If not I will delete it from being an option.

    Wow, could we just meet up around 6? Then pick the movie we want to see? Since they all start around 7 anyway, just thinking out loud

    January 15, 2014

    • Stacey

      You would think that is simpler, but I have experienced it already and it isn't. I was going to cancel the movie night, but then I thought some may want to go out, so this is the result.

      January 15, 2014

    • Stacey

      The movies playing right now don't really interest me, but they may interest you. So you have a few choices and you will clearly see who you will be meeting up with. If no one selects a movie, I will simply cancel it.

      January 15, 2014

  • Stacey

    I am setting up the movies people have told me they are interested in seeing separately. Please re-choose the move that you want to see. Only choose one.

    January 14, 2014

  • Stacey

    Unfortunately, they have changed the movie time for this movie to only once in the day, and it is now at 10pm.

    January 14, 2014

    • Shirley

      I would prefer to go for around 7 pm as well.

      January 14, 2014

    • Stacey

      So far there is 5 votes. All to keep it at a movie at around 7pm.

      January 14, 2014

  • Angel P.

    I wouldn't have chosen it, as it seems a little far fetched, but heard good things and comedies are allowed to be a little far fetched. Is there really room at the Tim's for a couple of dozen people?

    • marian a.

      I am not sure what it is categorized as ??..I personally would peg it as a drama love story : )

      January 14, 2014

    • Stacey

      So would I.

  • Cheron L.

    What time are you meeting up, Stacey? Around 6 pm? I missed you all last time I did a movie with the group, and prefer that not to happen again.

    January 12, 2014

    • Stacey

      I will have the exact time to meet up soon. 7pm is an estimate at this point. It could very well be closer to 6pm.

      I went down & spoke to the manager of Silver City Polo Park today re info on this movie for Saturday. He said he is waiting for approval of info and the info should be released later today to the public.

    I havnt seen the second Hobbit yet, any other takers??

    January 12, 2014

    • Stacey

      That is right, everyone has choice. If when you meet up you find someone that wants to go see a different movie that you also want to see as well, that is wonderful. Enjoy.

    FYI - To like this type of movie you have to believe in "signs" and be able to read between the lines. It allows you to visit the scenery of Greenland & Iceland. It is not like the classic movie, but very interesting to me. I don't know about you. You decide for yourself. Different really does describe it.

      Talk to each other. If you want to meet and see a different movie, perhaps someone else does too.

      January 11, 2014

    • Stacey

      I say this because I don't think this movie is for everyone.

    Saw it, scenery awesome, plot ok. People magazine says "Stiller and Wiig (Kristen Wiig of SNL & Bridesmaids) don't have chemistry, but they do have charm." Sean Penn's in it too!

    Just saw it tonight. Different but interesting movie. The photography is quite beautiful.

    this movie by the same title but starring Danny Kaye was on Turner Classics last week

    January 1, 2014

    • Stacey

      I thought I heard the title before. I am classic movie buff. No wonder it got my attention. Movies made back then in my opinion were made to be entertaining and light hearted.

      January 1, 2014

  • Angel P.

    Hmmm. Will check it out before committing. I'd like to see The Book Thief, if anyone is interested in that. It's playing at North Gate last I checked.
