Last Vegas

Free preview of Last Vegas (note that you must get passes ahead of time using the link at the bottom of this email).  Movie starts at 7:30.  We should be in line at least by 7.  The website says they may sellout, but the rep tells me they won't.  I think 7 is a good compromise between camping out and getting there at the last minute as the movie starts.

Regarding dinner, it might be a little tight to do something organized before the movie, and after the movie could be a little late for people.  I don't have to get up until about 8, so I'm good to midnight.  If people can hang out, lets get something after the movie.  If you can't, there's a little time before to grab something on your own.

In case you haven't heard or read about the movie, here's a little about the movie:

Synopsis: Billy (Academy Award®-winner Michael Douglas), Paddy (Academy Award®-winner Robert De Niro), Archie (Academy Award®-winner Morgan Freeman) and Sam (Academy Award®-winner Kevin Kline) have been best friends since childhood. So when Billy, the group's sworn bachelor, finally proposes to his thirty-something (of course) girlfriend, the four head to Las Vegas with a plan to stop acting their age and relive their glory days.

Release Date: Opens in Theaters Friday, November 1, 2013

Rating: PG-13: Parents Strongly Cautioned

    Melva, did you make it? Todd did you get up to the VIP? And Todd and Doug, you guys disappeared after the show - did you not get the memo about going out afterwards? Or was it too late on a school night?

      I was 50/50 on going out afterwards since it was a school night. I went to the bathroom after the show and it looked emptied out when I got to the lobby so I improvised and picked up a bottle of wine on the way home!

      Sorry. Next one then.

    Good time. Good movie. Great VIP seats. Good time at Crave afterwards. And the price was right. My quick movie review: standard formula with great actors and some great lines. There was scene reminiscent of Raging Bull. This morning, while in the shower, I realized there was sort of a Gordan Gekko moment. Now I'm wondering if there were some other fun references I missed.

    I enjoyed the movie. I haven't laughed that much at a movie in a long time.

    Now that we have our seats, I'm in the bar. Rouben, I owe you a drink...

    I'm in the theater lobby

  • kimber

    We are at the bar by the front door

  • tyler

    I'm heading to Crave right now... and I have an extra pass if anyone needs it.

    They will issue tickets now. VIP seats are limited to special invites, not Gofobo for this screening. I have a pair of seats front and center behind the railing if anyone wants to claim the other. Probably will hang out at Crave for awhile now.

    October 14, 2013

  • Sandra

    Gary wanted me to post and let everyone know that we are going to meet at Crave between 6:45 and 7:00 and all go and get our seats at the same time.

    October 14, 2013

    I heard they were out of passes, but the I got this from a member: "Hi Gary, I get the emails from promoters for these movies too. Just wanted to let you know that even when the site says they are sold out, that many people cancel their reservations and that puts passes back into the mix. So, if you or anyone ever wants them, just keep trying because they are often available the same day even a few hours before the show. Cheers!

    Tim (and Jennifer) and Todd, let me know if you were able to get passes. If not, I have one, Kimber has one, Sandra has one, and Rouben has one, which would be more than enough. But I got a few email requests too, so I need to know.

    October 14, 2013

    • Doug H

      If they give away passes does that imply the show is passed out versus sold out?

      October 14, 2013

    • Tim G.

      Gary I have not gotten past and yes I am so I'm still waiting to find out when I get done with my meeting if I can make it

      October 14, 2013

  • Gary

    Looks like we have a veritable plethora of seats.

    October 14, 2013

  • Michael O

    I have an extra seat as well.

    October 14, 2013

  • Tim G.

    Gary, Jennifer and I may be able to make it tonight, I will be in a meeting until about 7:15 in Golden Valley. So I would be cutting it close.

    October 14, 2013

  • kimber

    As of now I have an extra ticket too. I will be next door at Crave for their happy hour chicken tacos (yum) about 5:00. I plan to get in line at the theater around 6/6:15. The last screening I was at had the VIP seating available (bigger comfier seats.. nice). If anyone wants to join me.. let me know.

    October 14, 2013

    • Dana A

      I think all of us would like VIP seating, how do we do it?

      October 14, 2013

    • kimber

      Just get there early (by 6:30). I cant guarantee this screening will be in one of the VIP theaters though. At a regular movie you can bring your drinks from the bar into VIP. However, I'm pretty sure they frown on coming/going during the screenings. What does Gary's promo connection have to say?

      October 14, 2013

  • Sandra

    I am wondering if anyone is passing through Uptown that I could catch a ride with to the movie?

    October 11, 2013

    • Gary

      Sandra, did you find a ride?

      October 14, 2013

    • Sandra

      No I didn't find a ride. I will also now have a free pass for someone.

      October 14, 2013

    Not able to get tickets.
