The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

Walter Mitty is a dutiful son, a loyal friend, and a man who takes pride in his work as the photo editor of Life Magazine. He is also a compulsive fantasist who gets lost in heroic scenarios in which he saves the life of the co-worker he adores but who he can barely manage to speak to in reality. When the publication is bought out and a team of corporate hacks elects to go all digital, a legendary photographer entrusts Walter with the negative of an image he considers to be perfect for the final cover… that he loses. Walter embarks on a worldwide search for the photographer, which becomes a journey of self-discovery and a recovery of his buried dreams. From James Thurber’s extremely short 1939 story, Ben Stiller has created a sweet, globe-trotting (but New York-based) comic fable with an up-to-the-minute everyman.

Tickets are $9.75. Raleigh Grande accepts cash, debit and credit cards.

    A very enjoyable film and evening. Another nod to Dave S for suggesting NeoAsia which was very good.

    I loved that they hired Rodney Mullen to do the flat-land skating parts. For those that have never seen this person skate and have an interest, take a few minutes to look over this video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJg2_dUHd84

    He has a wiki page at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rodney_mullen

    Incidentally, he invented the kick-flip maneuver featured in the film.

    This was a lot of fun; I really liked this movie! Good music too and I liked Kristen Wiig singing Space Oddity. Thanks for suggesting Neo-Asia, Dave.

    As an aside FYI addition to Shawna's post, since I was in the general area I was able to stop by the theater and purchase my 6:30 ticket ahead of time- the parking lot at 2p was full and American Hustle was sold out. See you soon and merry xmas to all.

    Tickets are available in advance on the theater's website: http://www.carolinacinemas.com/raleigh/. There is a $1 service fee totaling $10.75 for the 6:30 PM show. I decided to play it safe and get my ticket as it's been brought to my attention the possibility of shows selling out due to moviegoing popularity on Christmas Day.

    I plan to arrive a bit early. I'll be near the seating area in the lobby at 6:00. If we're unable to get seats together, let's gather in the lobby afterwards.

    If anyone's interested in gathering after the film to discuss the "real meaning" of this Ben Stiller film, I called over to Neo-Asia and was told it is open till 10pm tomorrow.

    WALTER MITTY is basically a remake of the Oscar winning 1947 film that starred Danny Kaye in the title role. There was supposed to be a remake for this done in the 1990's with Jim Carrey,but it never got off the ground. Ben Stiller does the big screen/CGI loaded remake that should be the event of the holiday season.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
