Midnight Children: Indian movie based on Salman Rushdie's novel

The author of this book, Sir Salman Rushdie, won the very prestigious Booker Prize with this novel released in '80. This book, from what I understand, is somewhat fantastical and is a loose metaphor of India's Independence back in '47. This movie was released just last year, and it features many excellent Indian actors.

Here's the official information about this movie: Midnight's Children is a 2012 film adaptation a novel of the same name by this year’s Boston Book Festival keynote speaker, Salman Rushdie. Two children born as India declares independence from Great Britain are switched at birth in a Bombay hospital. The film spans the unfolding of their lives against the backdrop of India navigating independence. The film features an ensemble cast of Satya Bhabha, Shriya Saran, Siddharth Narayan, Ronit Roy, Anupam Kher, Shabana Azmi, Seema Biswas, Shahana Goswami, Samrat Chakrabarti, Rahul Bose, Soha Ali Khan, Anita Majumdar and Darsheel Safary. With a screenplay by Rushdie and directed by Deepa Mehta, the film began principal photography in Colombo, Sri Lanka in February 2011 and wrapped in May 2011.

Pre-movie meetup 6 pm for food: at Sip Wine Bar & Kitchen (581 Washington Street) is near to Chinatown T station - so as Emerson College for the movie. http://www.sipwinebarandkitchen...­. 

For those who go directly to Emerson College or late comers, please find Harry near the door or in the Center right before or after the movie. Harry looks like his profile photo without a dog. His mobile is[masked] (text during the movie).

From Harry: "I'll be there at around 5:30 at Sip Wine Bar. i'll be wearing a vanilla-colored sweater with dark pants. At  7:10 sharp, we will leave the Bar, and we will be at the movie theatre,  We would all be able to sit together since not too many people have signed up for this movie, according to the people of Emerson. We will improvise our next steps during our initial meetup at Sip Wine Bar, and perhaps, we'll all chat about next steps (if there are any) after the movie."

    Thanks for the e-ticket info. I also purchased my tickets on-line but opted for the "will call" option. I hope there is no problem.

    I purchased an e-ticket for this event thru the ArtsEmerson web site and received an emailed receipt from them--but no e-ticket.

    I called the Box Office, and they informed me they were "having some problems" with their e-ticket system. So I opted to pick up my ticket at the Box Office.

    Just to alert folks to this gremlin....
