10850 West Pico at Westwood Blvd., Los Angeles, CA
Ever since Adam (Jim Sturgess) and Eden (Kirsten Dunst) fell in love as teens, their bond has faced astronomical odds. The pair are separated not just by social class and a political system bent on keeping them apart, but also by a freak planetary condition: they live on twinned worlds with gravities that pull in opposite directions-he on the poverty-stricken planet below, she on the wealthy, exploitative world above. Their budding but illicit romance screeches to a tragic halt when interplanetary-border patrol agents catch them and Eden suffers an apparently fatal fall. But when, ten years later, Adam learns she is alive and working at a vast corporation whose towering headquarters connects their planets, he sets out on a dangerous quest to infiltrate the company and the upper world to reconnect with her. UPSIDE DOWN is a visually stunning romantic adventure that poses the question: what if love was stronger than gravity?
DINNER BEFORE THE MOVIE / MOVIE SHOWTIME
We'll meet at the Six restaurant (10668 Pico, about two blocks east of the Landmark) at 5:30 p.m. There is parking behind the restaurant. Please indicate in your RSVP whether you will be joining us for dinner. We'll leave the Six shortly after 7:00 p.m. to walk to the theater.
Showtime for "Upside Down" is 7:35 p.m. Be sure to purchase your ticket early, given that the Landmark has reserved seating and to ensure theater access.
POST MOVIE DISCUSSION
We'll meet at Lenny's Deli (2379 Westwood Boulevard, less than a block from the theater). Lenny's (on the site of the former Junior's Deli) has a collection of wonderful desserts for us to enjoy during our post movie discussion.
If you have any questions or need to track down the group, feel free to call or text Tim at [masked].
Hope to see you on Saturday!
