Announcing a new Meetup for Boston Movie Group!

What: Burlesque

When: Saturday, November 27,[masked]:00 PM

Where: AMC Boston Common 19
175 Tremont street
Boston, MA 02111

Put away the leftover turkey, forget about the holiday shopping trauma and come out to play! This movie looks like it will be a lot of fun.

7 PM is just an estimate, I will update with actual movie times closer to the event. In general, I show up an hour before the movie start time to gather folks together and we head in about 30 minutes before time to get seats. If you miss the group, come look for us after the movie. The group will gather outside the room where the movie has just been shown, to discuss the film, allow for restroom breaks and get a head count of all who are interested in heading to the Rockbottom for munchies, beverages and lively conversation.

My picture is on the website, check it out so you can recognize me. I will be wearing a meetup pin and will also have a meetup sign.

If the movie is playing upstairs, I will snag a table by the windows at the top of the escalators. If you get there before me, please grab a table. If it is playing downstairs, I will be near the ropes by the concession stand.

After stumbling upon The Burlesque Lounge, a majestic but ailing theater that is home to an inspired musical revue, Ali lands a job as a cocktail waitress from Tess (Cher), the club's proprietor and headliner. Burlesque's outrageous costumes and bold choreography enrapture the young ingenue, who vows to perform there one day.

Soon enough, Ali builds a friendship with a featured dancer (Julianne Hough), finds an enemy in a troubled, jealous performer (Kristen Bell), and garners the affection of Jack (Cam Gigandet), a bartender and fellow musician. With the help of a sharp-witted stage manager (Stanley Tucci) and gender-bending host (Alan Cumming), Ali makes her way from the bar to the stage. Her spectacular voice restores The Burlesque Lounge to its former glory, though not before a charismatic entrepreneur (Eric Dane) arrives with an enticing proposal...
