@PeterTHX , everyone is welcome. Only qualification is to show up pantless.

For anyone planning on attending, please chime in rather than show up unannounced. An accurate head count will help when booking table(s) for lunch.

Wups, looks like the earliest showing of Suicide Squad in Dolby Cinema is at 8pm. Pete's Dragon fills up the earlier shows, starting at 11:40am. Alternatively, there is a showing of Suicide Squad in IMAX 3D at 10:20am, which conveniently lets out just in time for lunch. What say you, Dan?

I was worried that would happen!

Let's do the IMAX at 10:20am!

Unlike the DCAP, there's no reserved seating, so show up early to claim your preferred seats. If anyone wants to break fast before the movie, let me know.

Dan, the movie runs just over 2 hours. Factoring in trailers and walking to the restaurant, what time are you setting the reservation (i.e., what time should the lunch-only folks meet us)? 1pm? That will give us a 10-15 minute buffer; we can talk about the movie, you can get your agenda notes from your car, etc.

Early reviews on Pete's Dragon are quite positive and it *is* playing in Dolby Cinema.

Yes, I would enjoy a good movie with Dolby Atmos & Dolby Vision and good actors like Redford & Howard (84% RT top critics).


It's nothing like the one from 1977. It's a family friendly movie, not a kiddie movie. Like Pixar.

That's all good. I just don't do "kid" movies.

Sanjay would get it.

Original plan is still in effect:

10:20am show of Suicide Squad at the AMC Burbank 16 IMAX Screen

Seats are *not* reserved, so plan on being at the cinema by 9:50am to use the restroom, grab concessions and find primo seats (although I don't expect the auditorium to be particularly full).

Lunch will be at 1:00pm at Barney's Beanery next door, for those skipping the movie (or choosing an alternate selection).

I will probably be at the Panera next to the cinema nursing a cup of coffee by 9:15 or so.

Scott, Ivan and I will probably meet you at Panera (grab coffee and a bite before the movie).
