http://photos2.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/4/2/c/e/event_249497102.jpegThe trailer for this looks very silly. Action packed with lots of bad one liners and the cast is awesome...how can you beat a movie with eff Bridges, Ryan Reynolds, and Kevin Bacon?
Showtime is 7:20, I will be at the theater by 6:30 and we will head in for seats by 6:50. Sorry non-3D fans but the movie times were awful....afraid the Lowes is betting on Grownups2 to be the hit this weekend. Man I hope they are wrong the first one was terrible!
In general, I arrive at the theater an hour before the show to start gathering people, and we head in for seats about 30 minutes before the show, so we can sit together. This also allows us to take turns getting snacks, etc., before the previews start.
About Buying Advanced Tickets:
I encourage everyone to buy your tickets in advance. We see most movies on opening weekend and they do often sell out. Fandango.com is where to buy tickets. Be warned though, there are sometimes hiccups to the system, especially the mobile app.
Not being able to complete a transaction does not mean they are sold out. Please don't post a comment to the site that the movie is sold out. Zip me an email and I will check it out. If it is indeed sold out, I will let people know. If you miss the group ahead of time, come find us after. We gather in the hallway outside of the theater we just saw the movie in, to discuss the film a bit, allow for restroom breaks and to get a head count of all those who would like to go out after for drinks and munchies.
$$$$Managing the after event is much easier if everyone brings cash, so please plan ahead if you want to go out with the group after.$$$

Plot Summary: Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds headline the 3D supernatural action-adventure "R.I.P.D." as two cops dispatched by the otherworldly Rest In Peace Department to protect and serve the living from an increasingly destructive array of souls who refuse to move peacefully to the other side.
Veteran sheriff Roy Pulsifer (Bridges) has spent his career with the legendary police force known as R.I.P.D. tracking monstrous spirits who are cleverly disguised as ordinary people. His mission? To arrest and bring to justice a special brand of criminals trying to escape final judgment by hiding among the unsuspecting on Earth.
Once the wise-cracking Roy is assigned former rising-star detective Nick Walker (Reynolds) as his junior officer, the new partners have to turn grudging respect into top-notch teamwork. When they uncover a plot that could end life as we know it, two of R.I.P.D.'s finest must miraculously restore the cosmic balance...or watch the tunnel to the afterlife begin sending angry souls the very wrong way.
