By popular request, the January Geek Movie we will be seeing the latest star studded incarnation of Les Miserables, starring Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Sacha Baron Cohen, Helena Bonham Carter.
We are seeing the 8:15PM show at Brier Creek Cinemas and I will meet everyone in the lobby at 8:00PM with my meetup sign so we can go in and get seats together at that time.
Note: Due to the showtime, we are meeting for dinner BEFORE the movie at 6:30PM at Red Robin (7860 Alexander Promenade Place
Raleigh, NC 27617 - our normal after movie place across Hwy 70/Glenwood Ave from where the movie theater is). If you would like to join us for dinner, please update your RSVP comment that you are coming so we can get a table the correct size. I will up front with my meetup sign, or if they seat us, ask the hostess for the meetup group table.
Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption—a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s (Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.
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.
