SCMF AWARDS SEASON SOUTHERN POTLUCK: Beasts of The Southern Wild @ Pasadena

  • February 8, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Join ~MC~  and the Fanatics as we catch one of this year's Academy Award nominated films in the running for the coveted Best Picture prize:  "Beasts of The Southern Wild." In addition to its' Best Picture nomination, the film has 3 other nominations including Best Actress, Best Director and Adapted Screenplay.

Instead of plunking out $12 bucks at a theatre, we will watch this members-only screening of this film in the home of V.I.P. member and event hostess, Allison Gibson on February 8, 2013 at 7:00 pm.   V.I.P. members will be given priority over other SCMF members.



 

THE PLOT:  Hushpuppy, an intrepid six-year-old girl, lives with her father, Wink, in the Bathtub, a southern Delta community at the edge of the world. Wink's tough love prepares her for the unraveling of the universe; for a time when he's no longer there to protect her. When Wink contracts a mysterious illness, nature flies out of whack, temperatures rise, and the ice caps melt, unleashing an army of prehistoric creatures called aurochs. With the waters rising, the aurochs coming, and Wink's health fading, Hushpuppy goes in search of her lost mother.

Visit the film's website for more info including trailers.



 

THE GAMEPLAN:

  • Any remaining SCMF members will be moved from "Waiting List" to "Yes" status until capacity is reached.   RSVPs are capped at 20 people.
  • There is nothing like food for the soul, so we're meeting at Allison's home at 7:00 pm for a Southern-inpsired potluck.   Bring a dish that will feed at least 4-6 people.    Our home cooks can check out Healthy Southern Recipes and Menus or Deep South Dish: Recipes for Potlucks for inspiration.   These Pasadena-area restaurants offer take-out on call-ahead basis or you can go the store-bought route.   This event is free to attend, but you must bring your favorite dish -- Southern-inpsired is preferred.
  • In your RSVP comments, indicate what non-vegetarian or vegetarian dish you're bringing (entree, side, appetizer or dessert) so that we don't have a duplicate of items.   Members are welcome to BYOB -- please drink responsibly.  Utensils, napkins and cups will be provided.  Bring your own plastic containers if you would like to take any left-overs.
  • Showtime at 7:45 PM. Please read  and adhere to the SoCal Movie Fanatics Ground Rules & Event Disclaimer listed below as this is a Limited Attendance event.   Directions to the location will be sent 24 hours prior to this event to "YES" RSVPs with profile pictures.

    It was nice and homey! Delicious array of food. Didn't really see what all the hype is about this movie though...it felt like a documentary. Don't really care for documentary style movies unless I am looking educate myself on a subject.

    I was eagerly looking forward to this but I am way behind on a work project and will end up working late tonight. I hope there's another event coming up soon.

    Okay, Movie Fanatics, here's more news. I had planned to have my new 55" TV installed & ready for this screening (and it will be for Oscars night), but there's been a couple of snags for the 8th. So we'll either screen the movie on my 32" Vintage box or use the projector. Either way, I wanted to make sure all Fans know we WON'T be viewing Beasts on my new LED TV, in case that will affect your desire to attend. Looking forward to our Beasts feast!
