Budget Movie Meetup: 42

Join us for the next budget Meetup, the Meetup of choice for the budget conscious film fan. See a new Hollywood release at the before noon bargain showtime followed by post-movie discussion over lunch.

April's movie is the new biopic of Jackie Robinson, 42. The story focuses on his first season with the Brooklyn Dodgers when he broke the color barrier in baseball. Chadwick Boseman stars and Harrison Ford plays Branch Rickey, the colorful executive who signed Robinson.

This month we're at the AMC Indianapolis 17 at Southern Plaza (at the US31 exit on I465 south). We'll see the 10:35 show. Meetup time is 10:15. The group convenes in the main lobby (past the ticket taker in the vicinity of the concession stand) before the movie; we generally take our seats about 10 minutes before showtime. If you miss us before the movie, we also gather in the hall/lobby outside the auditorium before heading on to the restaurant. Running time is about 2 hours, 10 minutes.

This event repeats every second Saturday. The location rotates among the three AMC multiplexes (Southern Plaza, Castleton Sq, Traders Point).

    Loved the movie but missed going to lunch afterward. I notice the new Qdoba is about to open. Maybe next time we can meet there for lunch? Dimitris is a good place but I didn't have the $ today.

      Good idea. The budget Meetup will be south again in July so it should certainly be open by then!

    The movie was great as expected with a discussion during lunch that went well.

    Really good cast and script did justice to the true story. Enjoyed the conversation at lunch as always.

      We usually go to Dimitri's, a family-style restaurant across the interstate from the theater on US 31.
