12 Years A Slave (2013)


"A man living in New York during the mid-1800s is kidnapped and sold into slavery in the deep south."


'12 years A Slave' (2013) (Trailer below)

"Devastating" "Brutal" "Harrowing" "Not for those with weak stomachs"

"The only movie made about slavery, EVER - All others always fell short with their mysticism, cookie cutter representations, and sentimental fantasia"

"Ejiofor gives the audience more emotion with a glance than most actors could muster with an entire page of dialogue"

This is just a small sample of what critics and film-goers are saying about this film.  Getting rave reviews at every festival and limited release it's played...and featuring a 95% rating on Rotten Tomatoes...'12 Years As A Slave' is now getting a broader release after 2 weeks in limited runs.


Do not miss what is being called 2013's best film and a "landmark in cinema history".


Directed by:  Steve Mcqueen (Shame, Hunger)

Starring:  Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael K. Williams, Paul Dano, Benedict Cumberbatch, Garret Dillahunt, Ruth Negga, Sarah Paulson, Scoot McNairy, Paul Giamatti, Taran Killam and Alfre Woodard


Event Host: Robb

When and Where: We'll meet up in the lobby of the Hillcrest Landmark Theaters at 6:45pm and head into the theater at 6:55pm.  The movie starrts at 7:15pm.  If you don't get there until after  6:55pm...no problem...you can either find us in the theater or look for us in the lobby after the film.

    Just an FYI for everyone - This film is starting to get A LOT of buzz as possibly being the best picture of the year and possibly taking the Oscar.

    Since this is opening night: Although there's no guarantee...this could be a busy night and you may want to buy your tickets in advance. There also may be "nobody" there. lol. But this is just a heads up in case.

    If you do want to purchase tickets ahead of time, you can go to Fandango starting Tuesday...or purchase them directly from the theater at the following link (for the 7:15pm showing):

    • Robb

      Great, Nat! I should be there by 6:30pm...or 6:40pm at the latest - and we'll definitely head in no later than 6:55pm to ensure we get decent seats. ;)

    Hope everyone's having a great week! Just some info for the Film and Parking -

    ~Time~
    Although the movie starts at 7:15pm, the group will be meeting in the lobby starting at 6:45pm and heading into the theater at 6:55pm. If you don't make it to the lobby by 6:55pm, no problem. Either look for the group in the actual theater...or look for us after the film.

    ~Parking~
    There's 3 hours of free parking underneath the theater, which can be accessed on 5th Ave. However...you need to make sure you get your ticket validated at the box office to get those 3 free hours. You can also get additional offers of validation at restaurants afterward.

    ~Movie tickets~
    Since this is opening night, it could be busy and you may want to buy your tickets in advance.

    If you do want to purchase tickets ahead of time, you can purchase them directly from the theater in a link I emailed to everyone today but can't add here.

    See everyone at the theater!
