MOVIES + FOOD: Drive
LOCATION: Figure of Eight pub, Broad St, Birmingham, B1 2HG - FOLLOWED BY - AMC Cinema, 220 Broadway Plaza, Ladywood Middleway, B16 8LP.
DATE: Pub meet: 14th October from 6pm for food & socialising. Movie starts at 20:50 so we'll be leaving the pub around 20:30.
IMPORTANT NOTE!! Please be advised that acquiring a table will be on a first come first served basis on the night, as tables cannot be reserved. We may use more than one!
Yes, the powers that be have pulled yet another release date at the last minute - this time for 'The Thing'. The good news, however, is that we can instead watch it in December.
Looking forward to Friday, 'Drive' seems to be a good alternative offering, receiving a couple of awards including 'Best Director' at the Cannes Film Festival.
The synopsis is:
"When a Hollywood stuntman and getaway driver finds himself double-crossed by the mob, his only choice is to drive for his life."
Lets meet as planned at the Figure of Eight pub on Broad Street at 6pm (leaving for the film at about 8.30pm). Look out for the jellybean (menu sized) card which will be sitting on one of the tables. If you are new, you may wish to email me for my mobile number to help find the group.
Any questions, feel free to drop me a line. I look forward to catching up to you all and hopefully seeing some new faces! :-)
