To Rome With Love: Cedar Lee Theater / Stone Oven

  • Jul 12, 2012 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

It may not be as eventful as "Midnight in Paris", but even in his 70's, Woody Allen has a lot to say.  I hope you can join us.

6:00 EATS

We will start at the self-service stone oven.  We usually eat at the high tables in the middle. It is a bit over a 5 minute walk to the theater.

Tips for improving your restaurant experience:

  • Print a map or enter the address in your GPS ahead of time.
  • Bring CASH to pay for your meal.
  • When you arrive, ask to sit at the "Movie Group" table.

7:00 MOVIE

Meet near the entrance door to the theater 5 minutes ahead of time or look for the group inside the theater or meet us afterward near the theater door.

AFTER MOVIE DISCUSSION

We will head over to Lopez.  Perhaps we can sit on their patio.

DESCRIPTION
Woody Allen's latest film, To Rome with Love is a story about a number of people in Italy, some American, some Italian, some residents, some visitors, and the romances and adventures and predicaments they get into.

REVIEW

"A film that sometimes comes off as an intersection of tangents, but it also gives rise to moments of joyous whimsy."

NOTE TO FIRST TIME GOERS
If this is your first movie with the group, there is no fee to attend.

This group has been successful partly because members have a genuine interest in meeting fellow independent movie goers. We don't always know where to look for you, especially first timers.  Consider posting your picture and printing out the pictures of the attendees to help find everyone easier.

We have multiple meeting places:

  • Entrance door to the movie in the theater hallway 5-10 minutes before the movie starts
  • By the entrance door or ticket office after the movie
  • Reserved table at the restaurant under the name "Movie Group"

We don't always sit together in the movie theater but if you see a bunch of people talking about good movies they have seen, it is probably us. Please join in. We are always happy to get new people involved.

NOTE TO ALL
In the world of Independent films, it is recommended that you check back a few days before the event to make sure the movie, restaurant, location or time has not changed.

    I liked the movie during and after it. The more I think about it the more I find in it. I also enjoyed seeing a lot of people I had not seen since April when we left for France. My dish at Lopez was also great. - The only downside was the noise. Lopez is always somewhat noisy, but last night there were two different groups of people who were literally shouting. I could hear only the persons to my immediate left and right. To hear Jim, sitting opposite me, I had to lean forward until we were a foot or so apart, and even then it was not always easy. Or maybe my hearing is going...

    Is it time for Woody to retire? It must be on his mind, since his character addressed that in the movie. This movie was funny enough, but not cohesive and had a few question marks. For example, who was Alec Baldwin's character? At first he seemed to be a real person, but then began popping up as a muse or advisor over the shoulder of the young architect character. Also, is it just me, or does Alec Baldwin seem to be in every other movie coming out lately? He is also in the new release, Rock of Ages.

    I enjoyed the movie. More times I laughed then I usually do at most "comedies. Afterwards, at Lopez, noisy. A few people were able to talk with people right next to them. Overall, a nice evening.

    Not much discussion, not much movie. Great time socializing.
