Dinner and a Movie- Star Trek: Into Darkness

Th winner by a no margin at all, a difference of one vote, is Star Trek: Into Darkness. I have to say I enjoyed keeping an eye on the voting this time around. The breakdown of votes is as follows:

Star Trek: Into Darkness- 25

The Hangover Part III- 24

Fast & Furious 6- 3

Epic- 2

So we will be catching the 8:50pm showing of Star Trek: Into Darkness. Which means we'll be getting dinner before the movie. We'll meet at the Skylight Diner at 6:45pm, get some grub, then head over to the theater.

Now, because deomocracy must be something more than two wolves and a sheep arguing over what to have for dinner (that quote doesn't really apply, I just wanted to use it) I will say that there is a showing of the Hangover at 8:35pm. For those of you who'd like to make a splinter group and catch that, I have no problem with that. I'll even include some details for it in the email I send out later tonight.

Now, because it's usually nice to talk about a movie after it's over, and always nice to talk when it's with good people, I intend to get some drinks in the area after the film and welcome anyone interested in doing the same.

    I did not buy my ticket...is this going to be a problem? And how will I find everyone? I might get there a little after 7pm.

    May 24, 2013

    • Shawn

      I just checked and there are still tickets available for Star Trek. If you're sure you're going to make it, I can buy the ticket and then you can pay me back tonight. As far as finding us, just call or text me at the number I sent in the email, and I'll help you.

      May 24, 2013

    • Shawn

      You have to let me know soon about the ticket, though.

    Hi! Is it too late to join? I just RSVPd a second ago.

    May 24, 2013

    • Shawn

      Hey Frances, it's never too late- but I recommend you buy your ticket as soon as possible. I recommend Fandango.

      May 24, 2013

    Oh Yeah!

    I'm so sad to miss this but my boss gave me some work tonight

  • Christine N.

    Shawn hate to be from the dark ages but I never bought movie tickets online. Do I select the theatre and buy the tickets and get a print out when I get there?

    May 23, 2013

    • Shawn

      Hey Marie, no problem. I guess it depends on the website you use. I use fandango. In which case you do select the theater first, then the date you're buying the ticket for, then for the movie and time. Seems like a lot, but it really isn't. After that, you have either the option to print something out, or pick your tickets up at the theater. CHoose whichever is your preference. Let me know if you're still having problems.

      May 23, 2013

    • Christine N.

      Just bought my ticket so excited, I missed your last dinner and a movie not this time. Any landmarks to look for when arriving to the diner?

      May 24, 2013

  • Shawn

    last comment for tonight, I swear (probably)- Ashton Gilliard has been kind enough to volunteer as the point person for the Hangover crowd. A couple of you have already done it, but anyone that plans to be a part of the splinter group, please indicate that here in the comments.

    Any suggestion where to park? I am not familiar with the area...Thanks :)

    May 23, 2013

    • Shawn

      Hey Li, I don't know too much about parking in the area, other than that there a few parking garages nearby. I come in from Jersey, so usually, I park at Secaucus and take the train from there to Penn Station. That's only about a 2 block walk to the theater. Hope that's at least a little helpful.

    I hope everyone that can is busy buying their tickets online. I've just bought mine. I'll be sending an email out later tonight with all the details and my contact info.

    May 23, 2013

  • Judy C

    Are there any concerns about waiting so late on a holiday weekend to buy tickets for the movie we vote on?, Maybe you should just make a decision and go with it so we can get tix before tomorrow?, after all it is memorial day weekend.

    May 23, 2013

    • Shawn

      I realize your concern, but it shouldn't be a problem. If it does end up being one, I shall accept full responsibility.

      May 23, 2013

    Star Trek!

    Ok, guys- it's a dead heat right now between Star Trek and Hangover. 22 votes each. I'll do the final count at 6pm tonight. If its still tied, I'll make the deciding vote. So those of you who've been campaigning, might want to kick it up a notch before then.

    May 23, 2013

    • Shawn

      Hey Rose, I usually recommend people buy there tickets ahead of time online. Sometimes I get discounted tickets for the group, but not that often.

      May 23, 2013

    So, how many people usually end up showing up?

    May 23, 2013

    • Shawn

      It's hard to say, because it's different every time, but usually between 20-30 people show up.

  • Ashton G.

    Hangover! Wait, is 42 now an option?

    May 21, 2013

    • Shawn

      Someone suggested it in a comment, but it's not one of the options. The only reason I didn't include it is that it's been out for a little bit, so I figured there was a good chance that a lot of people have seen it already. I recommend it, tho

      May 21, 2013

    • Kay

      42 would have been great, but it has been out awhile ... I will have to see it

    Hello there, I am new to these groups. Where do we meet and what time? Will you let everyone know? Thanks.

    May 21, 2013

    • Shawn

      Hey Alona, when and where we meet will depend on which movie is chosen and what time it's showing. What I do is change all the details on the event page to reflect what the final plans are and I also send out an email the night before the actual event with all of the details and my phone number.

      May 21, 2013

    • Alona P.
