  • This location is shown only to members

The members of Wimbledon Book Club would like to extend an invitation to the members of the London Movie Meetup Group to join us to see Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby down here in leafy Wimbledon.

Everyone is welcome.

 


Nick Carraway (Toby Maguire) is an aspiring stock broker in 1920s New York. Living on the outskirts of town, he reestablishes a friendship with his cousin, Daisy Buchanan (Carey Mulligan), and her husband, Tom (Joel Edgerton). Nick also befriends golfer Jordan Baker (Elizabeth Debicki), who is pressured by Daisy to begin a romance with Nick. Jordan informs Nick of his neighbor, the rich and enigmatic Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) who is famed for staging large, flamboyant parties for the region's elite. Attaching himself to Gatsby, Nick learns of a love between Gatsby and Daisy that was broken by the First World War. Now, Nick is caught in the crossroads of a staged game aimed at recreating the past. Soon it begins to show that greatness can sometimes be superficial to a person's real identity.

The Plan

  • 5:10 - Meet upstairs in the cinema by the Ben & Jerry's stand.
  • 5:30 - Film Starts
  • 8:00ish - Go for food and/or drinks at The Alexandra's roof terrace [link], sadly they don't take bookings so it's 1st come 1st served. If it's cold or wet we can go downstairs.

    I just realised that the only appropriate mark you can give a baz luhrmann film is 11/10!!

    Many thanks to so many of you for making the effort and coming all the way down to deepest, darkest 'saf London. It seemed a lot of you I talked to were having a good evening :-)

    PLEASE REMEMBER to have a clear picture of yourself in your profile if you want people to recognise you. Photos of flowers, sunsets, any breed of puppy, the back of your head, question marks, characters from mid-90's action films running at high speed, mountain ranges or giraffes will probably not help anyone to recognise you. Anyone using a photo like that and complaining about not being able to find the group will be gently laughed at, a lot. :-)

      I will be very happy to enjoy the film for you. Do you have a preference about how much you would like to enjoy it?

    Just in case we miss people outside the cinema after the film, this is the route from the Odeon to the Pub we will all be going to which is called The Alexandra. See you all later (except for the people disguised as flowers, sunsets, any breed of puppy, the back of a head, question marks, characters from mid-90's action films running at high speed possibly in heels, mountain ranges, pigeons and/or giraffes).

    Was just about to book my ticket online. It is the 3D version we're going to see right as this is what's coming up?

    • Rachel

      Thanks Alexandra, I realised after that it must be the 3D one. See you tomorrow.
