Hope everyone is keeping warm on what seems like the COLDEST day in a long time (Fri Jan 25)! Snow coming later too... I thought I'd return to central London for this go-around... it may be the heart of winter, but there certainly seems to be a plethora of outstanding films at the cinema.
Let's get together and watch oscar-nominated Jessica Chastain play the lead character in the drama that was the hunt for Osama Bin Laden... ZERO DARK THIRTY (by Oscar winning director Kathryn Bigelow, who helmed the film The Hurt Locker).
Here is the link to the film's web site: http://www.zerodarkthirty-movie.co.uk/
As usual, we will meet for some socializing - in this case some drinks after the film at a nice local pub in Picadilly, the famous "Tree Pub" (Waxy O'Connors).
[UPDATE - In addition to the England v. Ireland Six Nations Rugby match at 3PM (to 5), Chinese New Year's is on that day, so local pubs may be quite busy... So! I have some alternatives in mind in case Waxy's, which is quite popular, is full... St. James Pub (Shaftesbury Avenue), The Golden Lion (on Wardour Street), or possibly a place I have been wanting to try, the 5th View above Waterstones.]
Here is a nice web link to an informative page with background on the hunt for Bin Laden at the National Geographic: http://channel.nationalgeographic.com/channel/seal-team-six-the-raid-on-osama-bin-laden/
