Budget Movie Meetup: THE MONUMENTS MEN

Join us for the next budget Meetup, the Meetup of choice for the budget conscious film fan. See a new Hollywood release at the $6 before noon bargain showtime followed by discussion over lunch.

George Clooney directed and stars in THE MONUMENTS MEN as part of a team tasked with finding looted Nazi art in the last days of the war. The excellent cast includes Matt Damon, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, John Goodman, and Jean Dujardin.

The location this month is the AMC Castleton Square. Showtime is 10:40 and Meetup time is 10:30 in the lobby. Running time is about an hour, 50 minutes; we can expect about 20 minutes of trailers at the AMC.

The group convenes in the main lobby (past the ticket taker in the vicinity of the concession stand) before the movie; we generally take our seats about 10 minutes before showtime. If you miss us before the movie, we also gather in the hall/lobby outside the auditorium before heading on to the restaurant.

This event repeats every second Saturday. The location rotates among the three AMC multiplexes (Southern Plaza, Castleton Sq, Traders Point).

    The movie was a good vehicle to generate interest in this overlooked aspect of WWII history...not a great movie, but definitely a good, solid story with decent performances by a well respected cast. Saw an interview with author of book used as basis for the movie and am now motivated to read about it and learn more.

    Entertaining and thought-provoking dramatization of a fascinating true story. A well-crafted movie in the classic Hollywood tradition.

    Overall this was a good movie. I thought the character were all good or all bad. I think that in war there is a lot of in between.

    Showtime is going to be 10:40. I am going to have to miss it because I get to go to YesCinema in Columbus to see the Oscar Shorts program that afternoon.

    Does the movie start at 10:30 or is that just when you all will be meeting in the lobby? I have a meeting which goes until 10 or a little bit after but is just a couple miles away.

      The 10:30 time is a placeholder as showtimes aren't yet available. The Meetup time will be updated the Wednesday before.

      Hey Autumn, we'll probably have lunch at either the "Noodles and Co" or "Panera" near 82nd and Allisonville.
