Dec 25 Movie and Early Dinner for Holiday Orphans
This meetup is for Seattle Cinema Club members who will be orphans on December 25, and who would like to socialize by seeing a newly released movie followed with an early dinner at nice Indian restaurant. This activity will take place near the University District, and will be limited to eight persons. Because everyone will be an orphan on this day no guests will be allowed.
We will start by viewing the 1:15 pm showing of “Les Miserables” at the Sundance Cinemas (formerly the Metro) located at 4500 – 9th Avenue N.E., Seattle. There is good bus service to the U District on a holiday, and Sundance is ten minute walk from 45th and University Way. There should be plenty of street parking on and near Roosevelt Way. Because this is the opening day of a highly anticipated film everyone should purchase his or her ticket in advance. The ticket price for this matinee showing is $8.00, and there is evidently no service charge for the on-line purchase.
Note: the official meetup to see “Les Miserables” is tentatively planned for Sunday, January 6, at approximately 3:00 pm, at either the Thornton Place Cinemas next to the Northgate Mall or the SIFF/Uptown theater in lower Queen Anne. This event will have no limit on the number of participants.
At the conclusion of the movie (i.e., after all the credits have rolled by – the interesting location credits are typically shown at the very end) we will walk to the Bombay Grill, 4737 Roosevelt Way N.E., approximately two blocks away, for an early dinner. Here is their menu
We will discuss “Les Miserables” and any other topic under the sun while dining on Indian delicacies.
When you arrive at Sundance meet me on the second floor café. I am an Asian male who wears glasses and who will probably be wearing a hat of some type (beret, black rain hat, Russian ushanka faux fur hat if it is really cold). There is a head shot of me in the photo section of my profile so you can see for whom to look.
Participation in this meetup will be granted to the first four men and the first four women to sign up. Everyone will initially be assigned to the waiting list, and the first four men and four women will be manually moved to the ‘attending” list. Replacements will be done on a same gender basis until December 24 on which date the RSVP system will be switched to “manual” which means that the first person, regardless of gender, who notices an open spot and claims it will be added to the “attending” list.
Wishing everyone the best in the new year.
