Movie: 'Cloud Atlas' starring Bae Doo-na -- Win tickets and more!

  • Nov 1, 2012 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

UPDATE 10/25: Showtime and venue have been announced: 7 p.m. at AMC Van Ness 14.

Note: Showtime is 7 p.m. Running time is 164 minutes. We'll meet in the lobby beforehand, and anyone who has trouble finding the venue or the group can call Alby at[masked]-5971.

Bae Doo-na ("The Host," "Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance") shares the screen with Tom Hanks, Halle Berry and Hugh Grant in "Cloud Atlas," a sci-fi/fantasy adventure drama adaptation of David Mitchell's 2004 novel that's the latest from the makers of the "Matrix" trilogy and "Run Lola Run."

To mark Ms. Bae's turn on the international stage, we'll be awarding two free tickets through a Twitter-based contest (see the bottom of this event listing for details) and raffling off movie tie-in posters, T-shirts, journals and ticket vouchers (see image below) on the day of the event.  No additional purchase necessary.  (Geez, I sound like a cereal box ...)

 

For those who wish to purchase a discount ticket(s), send $8 per person through PayPal to albertleelim [at] hotmail [dot] com, designating the payment as a gift or payment for services. Refunds to those who cancel by 5 p.m., Oct. 31.

Synopsis: A British conman/composer in 1930s Belgium.  An American newswoman sniffing out a nuclear conspiracy in the 1970s.  A Korean clone who gains sentience in a dystopian future.  Across centuries and oceans and realities, the destinies of these and other figures converge.

Trailer here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQFAPeaJOf8

We'll meet and greet over dinner afterward.  Join us!

3. The winner(s) of the free tickets will be chosen at random from among the eligible Tweets on the evening of Oct. 31.
