I'm proposing a little "Summer Movie Group." We used to do this when I was in college, and I think it might work here.

One thing that I really like to do is talk about movies, expecially ones that come out during the Summer months. I think it would be a cool idea that this summer when a major blackbuster opens, all that are interested should meet at a designated theater at a designated time and watch it as a group... and then maybe afterwards go somewhere, grab a bite to eat and talk about it.

Would y'all be interested in something like this?

Of course you have to pay your own way, it's not my treat. ;)

$8.00 too much for you? Did you know that there are discount student tickets for the Regal Cinema theaters available for purchase in Marion Hall?

$6.50 for unrestrcited tickets (any time, any day) or $5.50 for restricted tickets (not valid during evening hours on new movies for the first 10 days). I picked up a bunch over Christmas and they work just fine.

Some of the movies coming out this Summer that we would see:

Finding Nemo
The Matrix Reloaded
X-men 2
The Hulk
Pirates of the Carribean
Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life
Charlie's Angel: Full Throttle
... and many, many more!


Interested? Check the Poll above...

it sounds like fun. but we should go to santikos theaters 'cause they have the best prices. from 4-6 on any day you can get tickets for $3.50-4.00 :D

--plus they also let you have free refills on all the drinks :) (not like you should be drinking so much during a movie--but anyways lol)

Agreed! Santikos is best. I like the Embassy Santikos as there's also a lot of places to eat right around there too.

Santikos sounds good... where are they at? Is there one behind the Hobby Lobby on Bitters and West, near that Habenero Grill?

Edit: Split the discussion about censored words to the Feedback forum.

Yep. It's called Embassy Santikos, and Habaneros Grill would be a fun place to eat before or after the flick. We could also eat at the Wings Stop....

Habanero Grill sounds good, but the Wings Stop kinda scares me--do they have more to offer than meat? (i've never been there before)

Cause i know i'm not the only vegetarian here ;)

Yo,

That sounds like a really good idea! count me in.

It sounds like fun, because not many people fully understand what it takes to develop and create cool movies like the "Hulk", the "Matrix", and LOTR! It would be really cool to sit there looking at some awesome digital affects, and later able to discuss the small things that an 3d designer can spot, or better yet a graphics designer in general.

.........Yo!!!!!

Having us watch movies would be a great idea over the summer. Embassy would be a great location. I have a friend that works at the Santiko's locations as a manger. I can see if he can get us some kind of discount as a group or something along those lines if you are interested.

Just wanted to make sure everyone reading this thread knew about the thread of the first movie we're going to go see:

X-Men 2 - THis Saturday - Embassy Santikos (http://www.cgauiw.com/forums/showthread.php?threadid=66)

Hope to see everyone there.
