I'm going with another group at noon and the organizer (Mark, great guy) has agreed to allow our group to join them. I know it's not much time for you to plan but if you're free or want to cancel your other plans you should come. This has got to be my favourite comedy of the era, so I thought I would include my group. You should join his group as well if you like classic movies at: http://www.meetup.com/ClassicMovies/
If you'd like to hang around I'll be meeting them for drinks and munchies afterwards.
It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963) is an epic comedy produced and directed by Stanley Kramer and stars Spencer Tracy along with an all-star cast of comic greats including Milton Berle, Sid Caesar, Jonathan Winters, Buddy Hackett, Mickey Rooney, Phil Silvers, Dick Shaun, Terry-Thomas, along with Ethel Merman and Edie Adams.

We will meet at 12 noon on the 4th floor in the area between the theatre entrance and Jack Astor's (this is to the right of the entrance NOT left of the entrance where the ticket machines are). I'm the tall blond guy standing there. At 12:10pm we will head to the theatre and attempt to get a group of seats together. The movie starts at 12:30pm. Make sure to get your ticket on the main floor before heading up to the 4th floor to meet us - the ticket booth is at street level behind the escalators. As there might be a line for getting tickets you may want to take advantage of getting your tickets ahead of time - visit the "Classic Film Series" page at Cineplex.com to buy your tickets online or visit the Yonge & Dundas Cineplex anytime before September 8th to buy your ticket. Tickets for this movie are just $6 (there is no discount for seniors or students).
