Budget Movie Meetup: GODZILLA (2D)

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.

For May we're going to take a chance on the new Godzilla movie. The trailer promises a return to the serious tone of the Japanese original. A young English actor I don't know named Aaron Taylor-Johnson has top billing (to the extent any of the humans can be considered top-billed...), but it also has an unexpectedly high caliber supporting cast led by Ken Watanabe, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, Bryan Cranston, and David Strathairn.

The location this month is the AMC Castleton Square. Meetup time is 9:45 and showtime is 10. Running time is about 2 hours and 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'll take our seats 5-10 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 (NOTE date change this month). The location rotates among the three AMC multiplexes (Southern Plaza, Castleton Sq, Traders Point).

    Enjoyed this a lot more than I expected to. A high end monster movie with good performances and some nice visual flourishes.

    This my first time to be a part of something like this! I'm super excited about this. I am a huge Godzilla fan! My mom and I used to sit and eat pancakes and have a Godzilla marathon. We had so many of them on VHS...(VHS does that tell my age). I took her to see the last one and we had a ball. We made an event of it. My mom has passed away since, but my wife and I had already planned on see the new one anyway. I'm so excited to be a part of this group. Please keep me posted on that particular meeting so I won't miss out on meeting everyone who's going!

      Hi Alan, welcome to the group. We're easy to find before and after the movie in the lobby. We'll be the group of obviously unrelated adults standing around in a loose circle. (Plus you can look for me and Gary- our pictures are in our profiles.) An email will be sent out a few days before the event with the final meeting time.
