The Little Theater Movie and Talk Meetup Group Monthly Meetup

  • Jun 2, 2012 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Welcome to our group. We see movies at the Little Theatre on East Ave. in Rochester on the first Saturday of the month. We meet at 6:00 - 6:15 near the cafe behind the ticket booth for cinemas 2-5. I usually send out a suggested movie list from among the 6:30 to 7ish showings.  Pair up with people for a movie or join the general group. We agree to meet afterward at a near by restaurant, Gusto, on Alexander for conversation about the movie, life, or towards wherever our desires take us.

Join us to meet new people, see a movie, have a nice night out with good conversation, connection and companionship. All are welcome.

Hello all,

There are some good choices for movies this Saturday.

"The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" (PG-13, 124 min., in Little 2 at 6:40) is a story of a group of British retirees deciding to get a better bang for their pound by outsourcing their retirement to India.  A great cast of seasoned actors (Judi Dench,, Tom Wilkinson, Maggie Smith and Bill Nighy) work magic together.  See the review below.

With a powerhouse cast of Diane Keaton, Kevin Kline, Dianne Wiest, Richard Jenkins, and more, "Darling Companion" (PG-13, 103 min., in Little 1 on East Ave at 6:30) is a shaggy family searches for shaggy dog film.  According to the review, the movie kind of rambles, but may be fun to watch like a TV sit-com.  Watch the dog get rescued and then it rescues the family.  Everything gets all tied up in the end, and the daughter even marries the veterinarian.

"We Have A Pope" (Not rated, 102 min., in Little 4 at 6:50, subtitles) is a comedy-drama story about how the pope gets chosen in the Vatican.  In this movie, an unlikely Cardinal gets chosen as the next pope, but panics as he is presented at St. Marks Square and doesn't want the job.  He goes under psychoanalysis but escapes into the streets of Rome as the crisis is being handled by the Cardinals in charge.  Check out the review from The Washington Times.

"The Sound of My Voice" (R, 85 min., in Little 3 at 7:10) is, according to the interesting review from the Buffalo News, a movie that makes you think, with a twist at the end.  Watch out for more interesting work from this director/actress.  Good fodder for discussion.  Check out the review below.

Meet at the Little Theater between the cafe and ticket booth for cinemas 2-5 at 6pm or about 15 minutes before your film.  After the movie, we go over to Gusto's Italian restaurant on Alexander (next to the Old Toad Pub, walking distance from the theater) for drinks, desserts and discussion.  Join us.

    I reached there little late (~6:25pm) but I could not find/meet anyone from this group.
    Meybe people were there but I could not recognize them. Since this was my first time meetup.
    I wish there was some sort of sign or something about their presence.
    Next time I will try to be on time and hope to meet someone.
    I ended up watching movie 'Voice of my sound' on my own. It's end was very dramatic.

    Saw The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel - ( to me) it depicted the grass is not greener elsewhere - enjoy where you are and what you are doing and with whom!

    I really liked Marigold. Interesting idea, outsourcing retirement to a world of adventure. Sign me up. We had three tables at Gusto's, perfect size for good conversation. It seems like all had a good time.
