Dinner and a Movie: Safe Haven

And the votes are in! Safe Haven wins the day, beating Die Hard by only a few votes. Here's the breakdown:

A Good Day to Die Hard- 12

Beautiful Creatures- 7

Safe Haven- 15

Dark Skies- 1

We'll be catching the 8:40pm showing of the movie, and that means we'll be eating before the movie- meeting at 6:30pm- at the Skylight Diner, about a block away from the theater. That'll give us time to settle in and not rush before catching the film. Keep in mind, Skylight is a diner, with diner style food and diner style service, but they seat huge groups quickly and do separate checks- and for that we give them our humble patronage.

If there are enough people interested, we'll end the evening after the movie at a local bar with some drinks. It's a nice way to continue the many enjoyable discussions we are bound to have, discuss the movie, and just generally carry on with the fun.

    Great movie & the best company. Sorry I had to leave so quickly after the show but, thank you Shawn for organizing such a great event!

    I made it for dinner yet I had to miss the movie cause it conflicted with my other prearranged plans. I enjoyed the dinner and meeting most of you.

    Hey Folks, I just sent out an email with details and my contact info. If you dont get it within the next couple of hours, let me know and I'll resend it. We'll be catching the 8:40pm showing of the movie, so if you're pre-ordering, keep that in mind.

    Hey! Anyone from Grove street, Jersey City?

    February 23, 2013

  • Karen

    Since this is such a large group, would anyone be interested in joining for the dinner, but then seeing Idenity Theif or Side Effects at 850 or 900. Safe Haven is 10 minutes longer than both of these, so they would all get out around same time.

    Hi! It will be my first meet-up. Do you have a special section at the diner or do I just ask the waitress when I get there? I assume that I just buy my ticket in advance?

    I hate paying "convenience fees" when I order tickets online. Please feel free to use my AMC Stubs number to avoid fees, if you're pre-ordering.
