Premise: "Disney's A Christmas Carol," a multi-sensory thrill ride re-envisioned by Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Robert Zemeckis, captures the fantastical essence of the classic Dickens tale in a groundbreaking 3-D motion picture event. Ebenezer Scrooge (Jim Carrey) begins the Christmas holiday with his usual miserly contempt, barking at his faithful clerk (Gary Oldman) and his cheery nephew (Colin Firth). But when the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come take him on an eye-opening journey revealing truths Old Scrooge is reluctant to face, he must open his heart to undo years of ill will before it's too late.Cast: Jim Carrey, Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Bob Hoskins, Robin Wright Penn, Cary Elwes, Fionnula Flanagan Run Time: 1 hr. 36 min MPAA RATING: PG - for scary sequences and images I'll see you at the movies.
Do your eyes sparkle whenever you hear the phrase Coming Soon To A Theatre Near You?
Are you looking for a cool group of friends to see new flicks with on OPENING WEEKEND?
Are you SICK AND TIRED of having 500 movies in your Netflix queue...and NO ONE to watch or discuss them with?
Do you get into intense debates about the symbolism of Fight Club, the endings of Inception & No Country For Old Men or whether Quentin Tarantino is a visionary filmmaker or a hack?
Did you answer YES to any - or all - of those questions? Then you need to join us here at SOCAL MOVIE FANATICS!
Since 2006, SoCal Movie Fanatics (SCMF) has been Meetup's prime destination for big screen excitement in the Los Angeles area! SCMF is dedicated to gathering movie lovers across SoCal every week to see the latest and greatest films from Hollywood. We are not a free movie screening club. Reserved seating, parking validations, IMAX and 3D are par for the course in our group - although we do squeeze in an indie/arthouse flick from time to time.
Our Calendar is jumping with movie outings going on across the city! You'll see some great flicks. You'll eat some good food (we always go out to eat before/after the movie). You'll make some great new friends! Sure beats sitting at home alone on a Saturday night streaming Netflix by yourself! :)
