Oz: The Great and Powerful

The Fantasy Book Club cordially invites the London Movie Meetup Group to a screening of Sam Rami's Oz: The Great and Powerful.

When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot—fame and fortune are his for the taking... that is until he meets the witches Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz), and Glinda (Michelle Williams) who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity, and even a bit of wizardry, Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well.

The Plan

  • [BOOKING LINK]
  • Buy your own ticket before hand to avoid disappointment
  • Meet at the Jack Horner Pub (which is opposite) for a quick drink from 4pm-ish. Meet in the very right hand side of the pub towards the rear.
  • Head to the cinema 10-15 mins before the film starts
  • Watch the film
  • Afterwards head back to the Jack Horner for a few drinks
  • That's it.

    I'm in!

    March 9, 2013

  • Gerard

    As its allocated seating I'll be checking with the cinema when the actual film starts for those who don't want to sit through 30minutes of adverts. I'm happy watching someones adverts if they want to pay me though!

    March 9, 2013

  • Camilla

    Is everyone planning on sitting together - if so, which aisle should we go for?!

    March 6, 2013

    • Gerard

      hiya, people just seem to be sorting their own seats out with a few people arranging to sit together. I always think its the meeting up before & after thats most important :-)

      March 9, 2013

  • Mosun

    Tomorrow will be my first time meeting the group. Can I ask how this usually works? Do I buy my ticket before hand? Do we buy together?

    March 8, 2013

    • Gerard

      Hi Mosun, yes, as the description above says "Buy your own ticket before hand to avoid disappointment"

      March 9, 2013

  • Gabriel

    Don't think I can make it I'm afraid- it's supposed to be a lot better than Alice in Wonderland in the colourful 3-d world stakes!

    March 8, 2013

  • Karine A.

    Sorry can't attend tomorrow now cause I am working. Hopefully will be free for next event.

    March 8, 2013

  • Gerard

    Please have a photo showing your face if you want to be recognised! Members conplaining of not being able to find the group with pictures of Sunsets, eyeballs, dogs, flowers, faries and/or jack pumpkin head (which is very oz themed) in their profile will be gently laughed at.

    March 8, 2013

  • Rohit K.

    Hello again. It doesn't look like a lot of people have booked their seats yet, including me, but is there a general area where everyone will be aiming to be seated?

    Not my kind of film, so will give this one a miss, but last night was my first with this group, when we saw ARGO in Wimbledon.
    I really enjoyed the evening, the film was excellent and it was great to meet Yander, who so kindly organised it and several of this group's members.
    Looking forward to the next one.
    By then I should hopefully have a photo up as well, which I have not managed to do from my iPad......?
    To those of you who are going this Saturday: enjoy OZ! :)

    March 4, 2013

  • Rohit K.
