Details

Skyfall is the twenty-third spy film (http://www.meetup.com/wiki/Spy_film) in the James Bond series. In Skyfall, Bond's loyalty to M(Judy Dench) is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. Bond investigates an attack on M16 agent Eve(Naomie Harris); it transpires that it is part of an attack on M by former MI6 operative, Raoul Silva (Javier Bardem). 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.

Naomie Harris will be the first Black actress to play Miss Moneypenny in the new James Bond movie 'Skyfall'. Harris(age 36), whose mother is Jamaican, was raised in London and went to Cambridge. She starred in the post-apocolyptic film 28 days Later(2002) and was the voodoo priestess in two Pirates Of The Caribbean films. The new Bond girl will initially play an M16 field agent known as Eve, but the plot will see her character transform into Moneypenny.

Then pick up your card at the theater's Guest Services before buying your ticket. Every Friday you will receive an email with the list of $6 films(usually 2-3 weeks after the release date).

If you would like to have dinner or drinks and socialize before the movie, come to the upstairs lounge/restaurant early, around 5:30p. We will try to be on the large red sofa to the left of the bar(otherwise ask the lounge hostess where Chicago Black Professionals Meetup is). Theater seats are reserved, so come up to find our group's seat numbers so you can buy one nearby. Or call or text Robin T. [masked].

Parking is FREE, there is a lounge/restaurant upstairs, and seats are reserved. So you can buy your ticket near the group, then come up and enjoy dinner or drinks if you arrive early. No need to line up way in advance for good seats together!
