maybe js or i could pick you and cliffy up from dorval. i'm also right between montreal west and vendom train stations. so if trian is easier, that might be the easiest way, and then johnny could pick you up from montreal west station

The Hobbit on Friday the 14th December

at 11:02 - 5th, December 2012
JS mentioned that he has next Friday off and wants to go see The Hobbit in theaters. I mentioned to Andy that I wasn't particularly fond of the idea of seeing said movie opening night, but since it's one of the only nights JS is available I may be persuaded otherwise.

We would need to make an outing of it though, and possibly reserve tickets and seats ahead of time, which means that we would probably be attending the Colissee, since I believe they are the only theater with this as a possibility.

I suggest we sound off on the topic since it would be most prudent to finalize the planning and organize the purchasing of the tickets as far ahead of schedule as possible.


(If you haven't noticed, Lincoln has truly had an effect on my vocabulary, or perchance just my writing ;) )

Here's a trailer to wet your appetite.

oh that's great, it's the ultra avx that we'd be able to reserve seats at colissee. Can you find out if it's possible with downtown?

Tickets purchased.

well one of us should definitely park downtown - only other thing i'd suggest is we should grab food or a drink before!

i'm going to be downtown anyway, friend getting something delivered and needed someone at their apartment. plus need to pick up a cheque for work.

food before hand would be good, would definitely need to get there super early though

News comment 21 | User comment 1299 | 8:08 - 13th, Dec 2012


tickets came upto 18$ each. ultra avx 3d, im hoping it'll be worth it! the seats are reserved, so we dont have to wait 3 hours in line - showing up 10 minutes before probably isnt a good idea either

Are you staying downtown after work or going home?

Maybe we could all take one car.

Wondering what the best way to get there would be. Can't take the subway since it's going to be closed around 1AM and i only know a couple of places where i probably won't have trouble getting parking.

js js

And i probably will get thai express since it's been a few months since the last time i had it.

there's a thai express near my place on sherbrooke - you guys could come by before the movie & we could head downtown after ? i'm open to other suggestions.

alternatively, we could just meet up before the movie

Don't really have a preference for where we eat. Alex mentioned that it would be easier to find parking near his place so we could all meet up there and drive together.

sure, its very easy to find - decarie south (15S), sherbrooke street exit. left on sherbrooke, then right on prud'homme. (it's the first street where you can take a right onto - it's also right before the gas station if that helps). address is 2115 prud'homme h4a 3h3.

around 8:30 ?

That should't be a problem. I think a bit earlier might be a good idea since we want to meet alex at 8:30 and i have a tendency to get lost. I was thinking of leaving at 7:30.
