    Any news on the time?
    Is this movie just playing once? I can't figure out if this will be my only chance to see it. Midtown? That sucks. All I can say is "Mall of GA IMAX, baby." THAT'S where it should have played instead.

    Alright Barr :freaky I was going to put in a call to you and Jr. Glad you are planning to attend. :thumb

    Flux: Notice the Midtown Art Cinema usually gets foreign and low budget films where the IMAX gets huge big budget jobbies. I do agree with you Midtown stinks but this is going to be a good film. :freaky

    waxy: My Uncle has been married six times, tell you sister you'll go to the next one and come over to the cinema. :lol3


    Okay here is the scoop. (as I know it).

    I called Landmark films who operates the Midtown Art Cinema and the movie starts Friday night. They have not published the times yet and said it is best for me to visit them on-line for the time schedule which will be posted On this site Thursday.

    There are also two restaurants in the courtyard ifin' ya'll want to get there early. I will be 2 hours from the theater at 4:30pm and will see ya'll there about 6:30pm.

    I'll make it a quick "gimmie some head" stop, that way I won't miss supper or the film. :freaky


    I'll arrive 6:30 and we can see what those two yuppie restaurants are all about. If they suck we can go some place else to eat. Fat Matt's rib shack? :deal

    What a teamplayer. You Da Man! Anyplace we can get together to break some bread would be great, especially if I don't have to be on a leash with the muzzle on.

    The Thai restaurant is mediocre, but I only ate there once.

    Apres Diem is quite good, but not terribly cheap. There are also two bars there, I think both serve food, not sure about the quality. One bar has pool tables. Within walking distance there are more restaurants, in the same complex, including a Mellow Mushroom pizza.

    I'll be trying to make it, depends on the time. Later is better. If it's before 7 fuhgeddaboutit.

    Midtown does get good flicks...they played Donnie Darko there not too long ago, and I think Motorcycle Diaries was there too, but I never got a chance to see it.

    It's actually a pretty good documentary movie, in addition to being a great action movie....don't hesitate to bring the women......

    they might get to liking this stuff if they see this movie....
