Jerusalem - Martinis and IMAX at Fernbank (9pm show)

There is a new IMAX coming to Fernbank in January and it looks great.  Here is a description:

Immerse yourself into one of the world’s most beloved cities in this stunning new IMAX® film. Discover why this tiny piece of land is sacred to three major religions through the stories of Jewish, Christian and Muslim families who call Jerusalem home. Unprecedented access to the city's holiest sites, as well as rare and breathtaking aerial footage of the Old City and the Holy Land, combine to make Jerusalem a unique and stunning cinematic experience.

We'll meet in the front lobby by the ticket counter at 8pm, then go downstairs and grab a quick drink in time for the 9pm show.

Martinis and IMAX is a great post-holiday event and Fernbank is great in winter.

Tickets are $13 ($12 for students).  You may purchase tickets ahead of time on the website or at the ticket counter.

Because of the change in Fernbank's IMAX program, I had to change the event time and will not be able to make the movie because of prior plans.  But I will be there at 8pm to greet and organize folks.

Hope to see you there.

    Thanks for coming everybody. Good movie and nice group, although maybe the biggest we've had for an IMAX event.

    Anyone interested in dinner before official meetup? Emory Village serving suggestion - Doc Chey's or Steady Hand? ...i'm coming in from Lindbergh area

    Hi All, I had to change my RSVP. I'll have to catch you at the next one.

    January 3, 2014

  • Mark

    My friend arrived late and needed to cancel dinner so I will be watching the movie with the group. See everybody at 8 in the front lobby. If late, try to find us downstairs before we head back upstairs for the movie around 8:50. Again, if you cannot make it, please change your RSVP - this group has a strict no-show policy.

    I removed my RSVP because I'm meeting a friend for dinner and then we are coming over to the movie. He had no trouble getting a ticket online. See ya there.

    Hi all. Great to see so many people going to this. Please make sure your RSVP is updated and if you cannot attend, please change to a no. Otherwise, see you at 8pm tomorrow.

    I'll buy a ticket once I am off the wait list

    I just bought my ticket. Also, the South Pacific movie coming out later this month looks really neat. I decided to get a ticket to the 8PM January 31st showing of that one, too!

    IT IS NOT SOLD OUT. THE MARTINI & IMAX STRUCTURE HAS CHANGED.
    Here’s a quick look at what’s NEW: The times they are a-changin! Martinis & IMAX® will now begin at 7pm and live entertainment will start at 7:30pm and will continue until 11pm. Films in the IMAX® Theatre will now run at 8pm, 9pm and 10pm. WITH MARTINIS & IMAX, THE IMAX FILMS DO NOT BEGIN UNTIL 8:00. "JERUSALEM" ONLY SHOWS AT 9:00 AND IS AVAILABLE. "PENGUINS" SHOWS AT 8:00 AND 10:00.

      Hey... I live in Midtown and I'm new to the group. I'd like to join this event and put my name on the waiting list. But I'm still just a bit confused. If the IMAX doesn't start until 9:00, is the group still meeting at 6:30? Can we join a little later if necessary? Thanks.

      December 31, 2013

    • Mark

      Meeting at 8pm in the lobby. Show is at 9pm.

      January 1, 2014

  • Tyeisha

    Thanks for adding me to the list. I just purchased my ticket to the 9 p.m. Jerusalem show (IMAX-M+I). See you all Friday

    From Fernbank's website (thanks again, Steve):

    Here’s a quick look at what’s NEW:
    •The times they are a-changin! Martinis & IMAX® will now begin at 7pm and live entertainment will start at 7:30pm and will continue until 11pm. Films in the IMAX® Theatre will now run at 8pm, 9pm and 10pm.

    December 31, 2013

  • Mark

    Here is the revised plan:
    -Meet upstairs in the lobby by the ticket counter at 8pm. I will be there to greet folks but will not be able to stay for the movie.
    -Head downstairs for a drink and music at 8:10-8:15.
    -Come back upstairs for the 9pm movie.
    -I have never seen an IMAX movie sell out but if concerned, you may purchase your ticket for the 9pm show ahead of time. Again, there is no 7pm show (and thus not sold out).

  • Jennifer

    Mark and Steve, thanks for sorting this out! So sorry you can't join us now Mark....next time! : ) Keep in mind Friday is the first night this film is showing and that it could be of special interest to many groups. Since we know the 7:00 show already sold out, it wouldn't hurt for people to pop online and grab a ticket now! Looking forward seeing everyone at 8:00, bottom of the stairs!

    December 31, 2013

    • Mark

      There is no 7pm show.

      December 31, 2013

    Purchase your ticket either at the window when you get there or else ahead of time via the website. We have done fernbank dozens of times and have never had a problem. If you think too risky, then can change rsvp to a no.

      Mark, no problem, hosting an event can be a challenge sometimes. Thanks for your work!!

      December 31, 2013

  • Mark

    Steve, thanks. That is brand new - just posted on the website. Sorry for the confusion. I will not be able to make the 9pm show this week because I have a friend in town from chicago. What I will do is keep this event posted and change the time so that it is closer to the movie time, since at least one person already went ahead and bought tickets for the show. I might also re-post later. I wanted to post the event early so that people had time to sign up - oh those tricky fernbank folks switching when they haven't done for years!

    I just checked the Fernbank IMAX website and Friday nights 6:30 pm show is sold out. Please change my RSVP to no.

    I elevated up from the wait list and I don't think there are any more tickets available for the 7pm show.

    December 30, 2013

    • Dee

      So are there group tickets? Otherwise I can't go either

      December 30, 2013

    • Mark

      We have done fernban dozens of times and never had a problem. You are welcome to purchase your ticket ahead of time if concerned.

    Hi all. Great to see such enthusiasm for this event. I always like going to Fernbank right after the New Year. Again, please make sure to keep your RSVP up-to-date, especially since there is a waiting list. This group has a strict no-show policy so if your plans change, please change your RSVP. See you Friday at 6:30.

    December 30, 2013

  • Kristina

    Love it. 6:30p.m. is a bit early and I am coming from Alpharetta so I may be late.
