Terrific Tuesday Eve Meetup @ Living Room Theaters! Argo


Grab a drink and let's go see a movie! Bring friends and some good conversation to discuss the film, its characters, the production and more. The Living Room Theater is the location of our weekly Tuesday meetup. Most movies they play are independent, foreign, artistic with an occasional blockbuster.

We meet Tuesday evenings to take advantage of their $5 Terrific Tuesday Movie special. They have weekday showings of all their movies in the 7:00 hour, and those are the showings we're shooting for. If you see something coming up there that you'd like to recommend as our Living Room movie of the week, message me or post it on the board by Wednesday the previous week!

See you at the movies!

 Argo

 

Based on true events, Argo chronicles the life-or-death covert operation to rescue six Americans, which unfolded behind the scenes of the Iran hostage crisis-the truth of which was unknown by the public for decades. On November 4, 1979, as the Iranian revolution reaches its boiling point, militants storm the U.S. embassy in Tehran, taking 52 Americans hostage. But, in the midst of the chaos, six Americans manage to slip away and find refuge in the home of the Canadian ambassador. Knowing it is only a matter of time before the six are found out and likely killed, a CIA "exfiltration" specialist named Tony Mendez (Ben Affleck) comes up with a risky plan to get them safely out of the country. A plan so incredible, it could only happen in the movies.

"Argo is a crackerjack political thriller told with intelligence, great period detail and a surprising amount of nutty humor for a serious look at the Iran hostage crisis of 1979-81."
Todd McCarthy - THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

"White-knuckle tense and less self-congratulatory than it sounds, Ben Affleck's unexpectedly comedic third feature has the vital elements to delight adult auds."
Peter Debruge - VARIETY

"Argo is a triumph. It has tension, sincerity, mystery, artistic responsibility, entertainment value, technical expertise, a narrative arc and a thrilling respect for the tradition of how to tell a story with minimum frills and maximum impact. It's a great footnote to history, one of the best films of 2012 and a sure-fire contender on Oscar night."
Rex Reed - NEW YORK OBSERVER

    Ben Affleck's character was an "Ex-fil" aka Exfiltration Specialist with the CIA. What a cool job. Thanks for coming out everyone!

    I might not get there until right before the movie starts. We will meet in the lobby after the movie and try to snag a table in the lounge area. I will have a small table sign so be on the lookout for me.

    I haven't heard anything about this movie. I like Ben Afflec, and it got the people's choice award at the last Toronto Film Festival. Seems like it ought to be pretty good.

  • Lorraine

    Well now it looks like we have to see Argo since it's playing there. Finally some fresh flicks!

    What are people's thoughts on the film? Josh will be gone again. Anyone interested in switching it up as far as location goes? I thought it might be fun. Open to suggestions.
