Weather permitting, we'll be seeing the 7:30 show at the Woburn Showcase. Dinner in advance will be at the Burlington Mall Food Court at 6:00.

There's a storm forecasted: If the weather looks bad, I'll post a cancellation notice on this message board at noon Wednesday.

Meeting Places:

6:00 at the Burlington Mall Food Court. Once you're in the food court area, look for us between Shotcakes (at the left end of the food stalls) and the Travelex kiosk.

7:00-7:10 in the lobby of the theater. Buy your tickets and then look for us to the left of the concession stand. At 7:10, we'll go in to find seats.


Burlington Mall Food Court - The mall is located at Exit 32B off Route 128/95. Turn right at the bottom of the ramp. At the traffic signals, turn right into the mall. The food court is located at the back of the mall on the second floor. The closest entrance is by Legal Sea Foods in back, but parking is harder. Alternately, you can park in front and enter through the entrance between Sears and Nordstrom - if you do this, walk straight through to the back.

Woburn Showcase Cinema - The cinemas are located off Route 128/95 at exit 35. There's a rotary at the bottom of the ramp - you want the Route 38 SOUTH exit. (From 128 North, this is the first turn; from 128 South, this is the third turn.)Once on Route 38, immediately take the right at the traffic signal (at the sign for the theater). After the road curves around, the theater is on the right after the hotel.

Your host...

...for the evening is Chris. I'll be wearing a teal parka. If you're running late, call or text me at[masked]-4933. I'll have the phone on until about 7:35 (texts only after 7:10). Note that this phone doesn't work when I'm home in Gloucester. If you have questions in advance, call me at[masked]-2254.

    Hi guys,
    The Yahoo Group poll on which weeknight works best for weeknight movies has not generated many votes yet and since four of you have signed up for this already, I think we'll leave it on Wednesday this month (on the 26th). (From the polling, it looks like we'll aim for Tuesday or Thursday in the future.)

    The Yahoo Group poll on which movie to see has just been posted and will close Sunday at noon. To vote, go to . (You'll need to be a member of the Yahoo group. If you're having trouble, please post your choices (up to three) below.)
