Grand Budapest Hotel

The long anticipated film is finally here. We plan to meet for dinner afterwards. There are a few restaurants co-located and more near-by.

I cannot remember the theater's layout, so we will go with our customary lobby area to the left of the box office. Make sure you take down my cell# when I email it to you. 

Zany comedy, over-the-top drama, whimsical and eccentric. THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL recounts the adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting and the battle for an enormous family fortune -- all against the back-drop of a suddenly and dramatically changing Continent.

    This movie was a classic. Too bad there were a number of fans that backed out.

    update: unfortunately, there is a sold-out advanced screening at AMC Veterans on Tuesday 3/25 (http://www.advancescreenings.com). no word on where or when this movie will be released more broadly in Tampa Bay.

    The odds are improving that this film will be in Tampa next week. I had just realized that this will be our 600th event. No bad for a shy introvert from Philly.

    About all the comments about the venue. We don't know yet when and where this film will be shown in Tampa Bay. Hosts usually pick the theaters where they can best make it happen. Muvico Starlight is a great theater but it's ~25 miles from me. I'd be the last one to show up and weeknights would be out of the question. I am also considering choosing theaters we don't usually go to just to mix things up a bit. I've been doing this almost 8 years. You know what I'm saying?

    I moved it back another week to make room for the Gasparilla International Film Festival on our calendar. Most likely betters our chances that this film actually reaches Tampa.

    March 17, 2014

  • Arthur

    I'm in Brandon but will drive to Bay Walk or Oldsmar to see it, both likely destinations. I have no one to join me that would appreciate the film, so will watch your group.

    If someone has an inside track on when GBH goes general release or is coming to Tampa, please share.

  • Anthony N.

    Sorry, but I can't make it tomorrow (also, apologies about having missed RSVPing for other events lately).

    March 15, 2014

    • Lee

      We moved the date back Anthony. Maybe next week would work better for you? We don't have a rule about how often you RSVP nor will Organizer in my group will coerce any Fan in seeing something they don't want to. No, Sir. not on my watch.

      March 15, 2014

    • Lee

      We would like you to visit our calendar a couple times a month. We are also open to suggestions.

      March 15, 2014

  • Lee

    Well Fans, it looks like, for this movie "In Select Theaters" means Tampa Bay is not yet selected. Until we know more, I pushed the date back to next week.

    I am fine with the date and afternoon is best. Countryside is fine too. So easy...

    I prefer Pinellas Park or Countryside. March 16th will probably work better for me then the 15th.

    February 24, 2014

  • Meg

    Citrus Park and Pinellas Park are closer to me but if there are more people from Clearwater attending I don't mind going to Countryside.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
