Dinner and a Movie: Taken II

And the decision is made! The movie with the most votes by a significant lead is Taken II. The breakdown of votes is as follows.

Taken II- 31

Frankenweenie- 4

Argo- 23

Here Comes the Boom- 0

We'll be catching the 7:05pm showing of Taken II at the AMC Loews 34th Street 14 Theater. I highly recommend buying your tickets as soon as possible. I've already bought mine.

We'll be doing dinner after the movie at the Skylight Diner, located about a block away from the theater. The service isn't great, the food is what you expect from a diner, but they'll seat just about any number of people immediately and do seperate checks- hence why we continue our humble patronage with them.

We'l thenl end the evening (for those who want it to go on a little longer, that is) at the Local Cafe, which despite the unassuming name, is the actual name and not just a cafe that is local. This will be a good opportunity to continue conversation over some drinks.

    I saw Taken II. The movie wasn't so great but the people I met afterwards were. Our Skyline mutiny led us to Tick Tock. Nice Meetup

    I think the group was too big to coordinate and eat afterwards. Might be better if it is not planned so far out in advance.

    I saw Argo and found it very powerful. I was on the edge of my seat for two hours and I felt sick afterwards. The diner was PACKED with people (in odd costumes) waiting for a table for half an hour.

      Hey Ann, there's a group eased up to you now, and I'll be there Ina couple of minutes.

    Several people told me that they are down with Argo, so I will lead the mutinous faction to Chelsea. The theater is at 260 W. 23rd Street, and you can buy advance tickets at http://www.clearviewcinemas.com/location.asp?house=109. The movie starts at 6:15; I'll be in the lobby at 6:00 in a plain gray t-shirt. The movie should finish around 8:30, so we should get to the diner around the same as the Taken folks. Any questions, text me at[masked]-0669. Let the insurrection begin!

    Ok Folks, I just sent out the email with the details and my contact info. I also included details and Marc's contact info for those going to see Argo. If you haven't recieved it by tomorrow morning, let me know, and I'll send you a copy.

    For those of us meeting for Taken II, how will we identify the group leader?

    I don't mean to influence anyone's vote--well, yes, I do. Argo's getting much better reviews than Taken 2 (94% vs. 19% on Rotten Tomatoes).

      the votes dont' add up to the # of people!

      October 10, 2012

    • Shawn

      Marc, you guys are more than welcome to split in order to watch Argo. It's been done before. If you want to take the lead on that and be the contact person for those who want to see Argo, I can help out with that. Erika, not everyone that rsvp'ed voted, the votes pretty much never add up to the # of people attending.

    I'd rather see Argo too.
