LOOPER @ Cineworld Shaftsbury Avenue

The Science Fiction Book Club cordially invites the London Movie Meetup Group to join us to see the what could be the Sci-Fi hit of the summer, LOOPER.

[BOOKING LINK]

REMEMBER: IF YOU WANT TO BE RECOGNISED
HAVE A PHOTO

In a futuristic gangland, a killer (Gordon-Levitt) works for a mob in the year 2042 as a "Looper", where he kills and disposes of people who are sent from the year 2072. Loopers like himself are well paid on the terms that the target must never escape. When one target arrives however he recognizes the victim (Willis) as himself and hesitates, allowing his older self to escape. The resulting failure of his job causes the mob to come after him, forcing him to fight for his life as he hunts his older self!

The Plan - Everything TBC until the cinema post the film times

5.45pm - Meet at the cinema

6.00pm - See film

8.00pm - Go for drinks at the Red Lion on Kingly street as its nice and quiet. [It's only about a 5-6 minute walk]

    A bit of a disconcerting film.

    Sounds odd to say, but too many people attended, for the Red Lion after venue to handle. I couldn't really find anyone to talk to, and the overall atmosphere was very uncomfortable.

    Cool, gritty movie set in a lived-in future. Great acting, and didn't drag for me at any point. Could have done with more blood and guts. Great action film!

    Interesting but a rather overplayed violence in a simple plot somehow gripping at times. I am not sure about the logic of te ending sequences.

    Dear everyone, we will meet inside the cinema itself (which is inside the Trocadero), near the box office. I expect we'll be the only large group there. Apologies in advance if I don't speak to you individually, with[masked] people that's not going to happen :). Seating will most probably be unallocated so its first come first served and we will going into the screen by 1745 at the latest, afterwards we will meet just outside the entrance to the cinema screen itself, give people 5 mins to freshen up then head off to the pub, The Red Lion on Kingly Street http://goo.gl/maps/SO1cm. Its about a 5 min walk away. Due to a few people calling me at weird hours (a Sunday mornings) asking when I'm organising the next film, I don't distribute my number anymore so please leave yourself time to get to the cinema. ok have a good afternoon and see you there!!!!

    People should bear in mind that there is about a 5 minute walk to the pub after the film. It's the Red Lion on Kingly Street. When we get there please go upstairs and to the rear :-) http://goo.gl/maps/SO1cm

    Gerard, well done for moving the venue! Movie pricing can be insulting at times, especially at Odeon and Vue, and it's good to vote with our wallets!

    • Gerard

      Thanks :)
