Watch Oscar-Nominated ZERO DARK THIRTY (with pub)

  • Feb 10, 2013 · 1:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hiya...

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/

    Cheers

      Hiya Amelia. In case you didn't see my post before, we will be meeting in the cinema after the movie (approx. 430, leaving together at 445). Not sure which pub will be free, so thought we should meet there and walk together. See you tomorrow.

      February 9, 2013

    • Amelia P.

      Yes thank you

    It seems the best place to meet after the film is in the seated waiting area of the Cineworld cinema... for both those attending the film, and for those only going to the pub (as the pub may change). We will gather again after the film at approx. 430, then leave to the pub at 445...

      Not sure about the membership my friend! I have been meaning to get one myself, but haven't yet... I would think the membership pays for a certain number of movies per month...

      Hiya - just updated the group with an email. We will be leaving the cinema approx. 445PM to go to Waxy's (get there around 5).

      February 4, 2013

    • Susie

      Hi Brett, Will you please send me a text or post on this page the name of the pub you decide to go to after 'Zero Dark Thirty' on Sunday? I can meet you all at the 'pub after' section of you event.... It would be nice to hear more about your days in the army. Susie :-)

      Sorry I never got back to you Jane! I will send out my details (to include my mobile number) on Saturday night before the film. Also - we will meet in a group in the seating area where people wait, across from the Ticket Booth inside the cinema (at the top of the escalator inside Trocadero). See you there!

    I'm a 'probably', so will get a ticket as soon as I know!

    Hi Brett - just a quick heads up but Sunday 10th January is the day Chinese New Year celebrations are going to be taking place, so the area around Chinatown may be a lot more packed than usual. Waxy O'Connor's going to be pretty close to all that action

      Really - Chinese New Year's? Well, perhaps we can all go be a part of those festivities after our movie? It should be all-right I think... if our pub is full, we can always find another one. See you there.

      February 5, 2013

  • Gemma P

    too early as I shall just have reached the pub

    January 26, 2013

  • Claudia C.

    Hi! ... If we buy tickets separately (either before or on the night), are we going to be able to actually sit together? Or is it free seating? Thanks.

      Hi there Claudia! Alas at this point I can't see whether the tickets are seat-specific or not. I will let ya know as soon as I know - often however, the seats are not assigned and are first-come, first-served. In those cases, we rely on the pub or restaurant bit to socialize so don't worry you will get to meet some nice people.
