If you'd like to have dinner before the movie, please note that when you RSVP (add a Comment), so we can get a head count. We'll go to Crepevine ( (click for info). Meet there at 5:45 PM. We'll head to the theater around 7:00 PM. Non-diners, we'll meet you on the balcony landing around 7:15.

The movie is short, so there'll be plenty of time to go to Cafe Epi for coffee/dessert (maybe even some trivia…), after the show. Re-group on the landing, after the show, and we'll decide.

The Stanford Theatre does not accept credit cards, so come prepared with $7 cash for your ticket.

And now, on with the show!
