Movie and Dinner - ABOUT TIME (a romantic comedy by Richard Curtis)

  • September 7, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hold the presses! A little something for the Ladies this time (and the Anglophiles among us who love movies shot in London and the UK) - a schmalzy but oh-so-enjoyable-guilty-pleasure Rom Com from the definitive master of the genre, Richard Curtis... About Time!

Four Weddings and a Funeral? Notting Hill? Love, Actually? Yep - all by Mr. Curtis. While not always very true-to-life, these enjoyable films always put me in a good mood on a rainy day, showing an admittedly naive at times, but in the end hopeful, look at the world. Something we all need I would say.

So if the the Hugh Grant-style Rom Com will give you a nice break after a long week, why not come out and check this one out with us. In addition to Rachael McAdams, the son of Brendan Gleeson is in it, as is Bill Nighy. 

All are welcome of course, to include the gentlemen, but I did think that something needed to be posted catering a bit more to the ladies in our group after all the action films. Don't worry guys, I'll post Rambo 37 or something next time out to restore balance. Ha ha...

Here is a review by the Hollywood Reporterhttp://www.hollywoodreporter.com/movie/about-time/review/602866

Following that, enjoy this teaser trailer via YouTube on the film: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u2PUMA6nFWk


WHAT: Movie (About Time) & Dinner (Thai Silk)

WHERE: O2 Centre, North Greenwich (Cineworld O2 for Movie, Thai Silk for Dinner)

WHEN: Saturday, 7 September 2013 (Meetup Time 530PM at Thai Silk; Movie Showtime at O2 is 2030 (830PM))

TUBE: Jubilee

Web Link for Movie Review, as well as an additional trailer, and listing of showtimes (but not tickets) at TIME OUT LONDON: http://www.timeout.com/london/film/about-time?page=2#booking

TICKETS: Web Link for Cineworld at O2 (North Greenwich) is here - http://www.cineworld.co.uk/whatson/5999#cinema=79&date=all

NOTE: Tickets for our event date, Saturday 7 September, are not yet showing (for some reason), although dates for the 4th, 5th, and 12th (?) ARE. So we know the movie will be there, they just have not yet posted our times and purchase links yet. Still, the TIME OUT web link above with the review does show a 2030 (830PM) showing on the 7th. Will update probably on Tuesday when the link is posted.


We will meet before the film to eat and socialize at Thai Silk (a nice place I have hosted an event at previously, for The Hobbit, last December)... then, we will be seeing the 2040 (840PM) showing of About Time. Should be fun - although it DOES mean I will have to take the late train back to Cambridge! Ha ha... oh, well, it's Saturday night, right?

Look forward to seeing everyone at the movies! 


Cheers!

    A lovely choice for a late Summer Saturday night - full of joy, hope, fun, London scenes and Time Travel! And Domhnall did SUCH a good job of doing a Londoner/Hugh Grant accent - impressed! ;-)

    Thanks Brett for a good evening's entertainment :-)

    Had a great time again hosting for such fine people... thank you as always for your RSVP and attendance as you make the group what it is! The movie WAS great actually - as good as the others Curtis is known for, and made up for the S & L being closed...

    Too far Jade coming from N. London? I have you beat on distance coming from Cambridge (Wink!)... you should come. It is always a fun group.

    September 7, 2013

    • Claire

      I agree! Jade, Greenwich is not far out at all really, on Jubilee line which lots of North London is too.
      Brett, I probably won't make it for dinner but maybe for dessert ;-) or tea after, so hope to get to S & L around 7.30/7.45. Cheers, Claire

    Alysha... ??? Really... surprised as Thai Silk was a classy affordable place. Sure... Slug & Lettuce might work but we may need to choose on the day or just go for drinks - S & L can get busy.

    September 3, 2013

    • Alysha N.

      I know! It's such a shame but yes Thai Silk at the o2 is no more

      1 · September 3, 2013

  • Marianne

    Sorry, not going to be able to make that now; too difficult to get too..... :(
    You all have fun though and see you another time.

    September 3, 2013

    Sadly can't make the event now. Hope to meet some of you next time. Enjoy the film and thanks for organising Brett!

    September 3, 2013

  • Alysha N.

    Just reserved my ticket. But i just thought i'd mention that Thai Silk at the O2 is no longer there - walked past it a couple of weeks ago and the Slug & Lettuce have expanded taking it over.

    Well... it is prime time Saturday night, and it is opening weekend so it might sell out. I would buy in advance if possible.

    Gita... it wasn't an official poll, just a term I used. People were suggesting their opinions as I had not posted a location yet. If you want to make a suggestion please keep up with the commentary and make a suggestion... would be happy to consider it.

      it doesn't seem to be showing in central london, except for hammersmith. In the circs best to keep to what you've announced.

    P.S. We can also meet first to socialize over dinner at Thai Silk, a place I took a group to see the Hobbit ladt December... good food at reasonable prices.

    September 1, 2013

    • Kat

      The food was great there last time :)

      September 2, 2013

    I didn't realise there was a polling for chosing a venue, I'd be grateful if you'd make this clear in future please. I'm now a maybe, will decide nearer the day

    Hello everyone - I hope everyone had a great weekend! So... for a venue, my count on the vote was 5 for central London, and 8 for South/SW/SE. So! Let's meet at the O2 North Greenwich - which is still quite central to everyone. Will post the tickets web link tomorrow (Monday).

    Sure... will be posting the location this afternoon. I didn't think this was a sell-out film, so thought I could wait until this weekend to choose a cinema. You will have fun I promise!
