      This reminds me of the live action short "do I have to do everything?"! Only you got what you had to do right. ;)

    I think the mix of films was better in 2012 and 2013, but there were still a few gems.

    Nice to have made it and to have met you Lana! Hope to join the group next time for dinner when I am recovered. :-)

    Very long but enjoyed all the films..third year in a row I've done this

    1 · March 2, 2014

    This was fantastic! Every short we saw whether it be live action or animation was worthy of an academy award, and very captivating regardless of premise. I wish we could see films like this on a regular basis instead of a special occasion. The interviews with the 3 directors was also excellent and very informative. Even though this was a real time commitment of 4 hours, it was totally worth it! Really enjoyed dinner and the conversation afterwards as well.

    Lana...I am concerned about parking. If the movie lasts over 3 hours and the parking lot is full, then how do we manage this? And also, if we go out to eat after...does the parking limitations expire after a certain hour or do we need to drive away from this area to park in an unrestricted area to find food?

    March 1, 2014

    • Lana

      The time limit is only for the small uncovered parking lot behind the theatre. The parking structure is fine.

      March 1, 2014

    • Valerie

      Nowadays you just really got to read the signs before you leave your car, and know how much time you might need.

      March 1, 2014

  • Terry

    Looking forward to joining the group and finally meeting you, Lana. Lol. :-)

    1 · February 23, 2014

    • Lana

      Haha...yeah!

      1 · February 24, 2014

  • Lawrence

    Sorry what is the admission cost again?

    February 22, 2014

    • Lana

      According to Fandango, it's $10.

    I have one of my French meetups at La Boulange in Lafayette from noon to 1:15 so if I can duck out in time I will attend too. For that reason I won't RSVP "yes" quite now. But it sounds great.

    1 · February 19, 2014

    • Lana

      It runs for over 3 hours, so we'll be there, lol.
