  • This location is shown only to members

Recipent of 5 Academy Award Nominations and multiple International Awards, Amelie takes you on one girl's magical journey as she discovers she possesses the power to make people happy. 

Please join me Wednesday, January 1st to be immersed in Amiele's world whilst being mesmerized by the beauty of  Paris' 18th Arrondissement, the 'old village' of Montmartre.

Movie begins @ 2 p.m., box office opens @ 1:30 p.m.

I'll be in the balcony, upper middle section.

After the movie, we'll visit one of our local cafes....and pretend we're in Paris.

Cafe location will be posted later.

See you then....

Caroline :-)

    I always love watching Amelie. So sad, funny, heartbreaking and wonderful. For 2014, I will listen to the Glass Man and follow my dreams.

    Amelie ROCKS! In case some viewers still didn't get my joke below after seeing the movie for the first time... Very early on in her adventures she attends a lot of movies. Besides turning around to see the expressions on others' faces, she notices things in the films no one else would. The example in the scene is a fly or some kind of bug on the wall between the heads of two lovers just before they kiss. (And, no, I don't have a special observation this time around. Does anyone else have their own example of an "Emilie" observation?)

      I have enjoyed this movie countless times. I always get stuck around the point where Amelie's mother dies. The narrator describes how her father becomes more and more distant, how she has no playmates, etc, but they still depict Amelie using the same (adorable) young actress, so you don't feel as if Amelie is advancing in age while this is going on. Then, suddenly, "5 years later" she is a young adult, moving out of the house. What?

      Also, here is an interesting article about the visual style of Amelie. Lots of green, gold and red; little if any blue. http://evanerichards....­ Anyway, it was so nice to see the film on the big screen again!

    The hikers who attended may not agree, but I think It was the perfect frigid new years day activity! It was great to meet @ the cafe before & after the movie.

    I loved the movie Amelie - not only the charming and funny story, but the rich colours and cinematography. Quite a few of us hung out in cafe afterward, and it was a fun movie to discuss. Everyone seemed to agree it was a nice way to spend New Yrs Day afternoon. Thanks!

    Amelie is a great movie and was a great way to welcome 2014 on a positive, high note.
    Dryden cafeteria was just fine for after movie conversation.

    Yaz, take care! Nice meeting you.

    I loved the movie-it was surprising and sweet. I couldn't wait for Amelie to take that final risk to find love. It was nice to see such a big crowd, too. I enjoyed talking to Brian, Sue and Marcia before the movie, too. A great way to spend New Year's Day!

    Not only will I be there, I am sure to notice something about the movie no one else will! (if you've already seen the movie you will probably get the joke here!)

    See everyone tomorrow.
    I'll be by the ticket booth at 1:30.
    I sort of expect a huge turnout so we should greet and then folks should take a seat in the upper middle where we normally sit.

    Of course, if you want to keep me company in the lobby, you are more than welcome. ;<)

    I plan on staying at the Dryden afterwards for coffee unless something unusual happens, e.g. the cafeteria is closed.

    Other than that: "HAPPY NEW YEAR!".

    P.s. No drinking and driving tonight.

    Since we are in the Dryden already, I thought we might simply adjourn to the Eastman cafeteria. If it is crowded or closed, we can go down to Starry Nights.

    I've seen it before and it's worth seing again! -- Thank you, Larry.

    Hi, everyone,
    The Eastman House cafeteria should be open so I thought we could just adjoin there after the movie. Thoughts?

    I can host. Should I submit a curriculum vitae for the position?

    The best laid plans.....so...my flight from Atlanta back to Rochester doesn't arrive until 4 p.m. on 1/1/14, which means I'll need a volunteer to host this event. Any volunteers?
