The Incredible Burt Wonderstone (7PM Show)

  • Mar 16, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

The trailer for this makes it look like a hoot and how can you not laugh with this cast?

Showtime is at 7.  I will be at the theater by 6 and we will be heading in for seats at 6:30.  Note the movie is playing upstairs so look for the group at the tables by the windows at the top of the escalator.

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.

Because the group usually sees movies opening weekend, it is a good idea to buy your tickets in advance, especially if there is a lot of buzz about the film.

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: Superstar magicians Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carell) and Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi) have ruled the Las Vegas strip for years, raking in millions with illusions as big as Burt's growing ego. But lately the duo's greatest deception is their public friendship, while secretly they've grown to loathe each other. Facing cutthroat competition from guerilla street magician Steve Gray (Jim Carrey), whose cult following surges with each outrageous stunt, even their show looks stale. But there's still a chance Burt and Anton can save the act—both onstage and off—if Burt can get back in touch with what made him love magic in the first place.

    Had a good time hanging out with everyone at California Pizza Kitchen, meeting a couple of new people. Thanks, Doreen, for letting me "drop in" on your meetup after the movie.

    sorry guys I have been getting free screening passes from The Movie Screening Group. These Tickets get expensive. You should try that group too they seem to get all the passes, 3D as well.....no offense to this group. You guys are cool.

      I don't enjoy the free pass experience because I want to know I have a seat. The one time I went they hollered at us and only a couple of our group actually made it into the show.

      March 12, 2013
