I decided to post a bonus Geek movie for October and take advantage of $5.00 Tuesdays at the Southpoint Cinemas.
We will be seeing Argo, which is getting very good reviews, is based on a true story and is supposed to be quite exciting and suspenseful. It also has a star studded cast including: Ben Affleck, Bryan Cranston, Alan Arkin, and John Goodman
We are seeing the 7:15PM show at Southpoint Cinemas, and I will meet everyone in the lobby no later than 7:00PM. Since the movies are only $5.00 on Tuesday, these nights are popular, so please be on time so we can go in and get seats together.
Since this is a school night, I am not planning any food/dinner gathering afterward.
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.
As with all geek events, we request a $1 donation to cover meetup fees, snacks and prizes for future events.
2 Strike Attendance Policy
Since many of our events fill up and have waiting lists, we enforce a “Two Strike” attendance policy. If you are a “No Show” or a “Late Drop” (dropping less than 6 hours before an event) it will count as a strike. After two strikes you are subject to removal from the group. So please only sign up for events that you know you can attend and update your RSVPs in a timely fashion if your plans change.
