    Austin Movie Nights!

    Ok here is my list, did some research plus remembered a few from an AMC Horror movie countdown and scariest Movie scenes ever! Not sure how many of these are on DVD, some are mainstream some might not be easy to locate, but I am willing to make a screening of any of them. I am going to visit...

    Speaking of meets, I think I just stumbled upon one Jacob Aaron. How is that for a teaser?

    Austin Movie Nights!

    Your best bet might be just to let Nils coordinate the sale, if you have never done anything with Ebay. For if you haven't you will need to set-up an account with them and then you will probably want to set-up a Paypal account. Also as a brand new account holder your lack of feedback could...

    Austin Movie Nights!

    Had the same experience on viewing E3 as well. aw it at Gateway then a few days later saw it in digital at Highland. You could tell the piture was improved, but what really blew me away was the sound. They seemed to have the bass dialed in great. Also on every movie I have seen at the...

    If by extensive you mean everything then yes. It might not be everything, but it sure looks, feels, and sounds like it. Nils I would be interested. I believe they said they are planning to show stuff like Stealth and The Island on the digital screens soon, although neither is a digital...

    Austin Movie Nights!

    I have got to give a plug to what I believe is the best theater in Austin, Galaxy Highland 10. This theater had a complete makeover last Summer. Stadium seating was added to all theaters, new sound systems, and new seating. So all the theaters are nicely sized and I know the chairs are the...

    Austin Movie Nights!

    Well I went to see it today as well, but not on digital so MAria and I will catch that when the things settle down. But all I have got to say is "Ugh". Presence of many Metachlorinines must not equal greater brain cell mass. In my best Napolean Dynamite voice "Geez, what an idiot!"...

    Jonathan the 20th sounds good (21st would probably work as well). The box lists the running time of THHGTG as 190 minutes FYI.

    No projector, just my LCD 17" WIDESCREEN HDTV still.:emoji_thumbsup: What night would be good for you Jonathan if you were to host, as I can't? Maria is in school crunch mode. Thus, I am disallowed to have folks over until the 13th of May.

    Austin Movie Nights!

    Any interest in folks out there to see the original British TV series of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy prior to the remake's arrival in theaters. I don't think Maria and I will break down to see the new one as I don't think they can improve upon the original, it is a classic. Very...

    Austin Movie Nights!

    Yeah Hank, Fredrick, and Cody, where did you guys sneak off to after the movie? We went outside and thought you guys were right behind us. Then we stop in the lobby to let you catch up and "Puff" your gone. Oh well. The movie was a fun movie my only complaints were towards the end with the...

    How about the 7:35pm showing at Gateway on Friday night. That way we will have time to enjoy a happy hour somewhere all the way up to 7pm.

    Hank, You still up for an adventurous outing this Friday for Sahara? It may be just you and me, but I am ready to go. How about we wet are dry throats at a nearby watering hole before the movie and then stumble over to the theater. Which theater's are going to be showing it? Is...

    I am not sure of what my schedule will be that particular weekend as I have a big workevent going then, but it definately sounds fun to me. So I am in if I can. Is it a problem if my adventure wear includes stockings?:D

    So anyone else heading down to Scholz's this Wednesday for the free show? BTW, the Blind Boys of Alabama were amazing on Friday. The store was nearly packed full of people, and the band responded with a flawless performance. The Kills afterwards were pretty cool as well, although they were...

    Austin Movie Nights!

    Speaking of foreign movie suggestions two good ones came out in the past month at least in R1. Twilight Samurai - woo hoo, awesome movie! The Celebration - this one took about five years from its US theatrical release to make it to DVD here. I would buy it but the DVD is in freakin' full...

    Well to Leroy and John, don't be shy about joining our Poker games. Unlike many others around town we play for low stakes (just $5 buy-ins), so even if you have horrrendous night at most you would lose $20, but to me that is about the same cost as any other form of entertainment for one night...

    I should be able to make it, and who knows maybe this year I will show up ready to compete with ingredients and all. I also have to book a flight to New York to defend my martini mixing title in June. The pressure is on. James, shame on you for suggesting HT stores and only talking...

    Colin you still hosting a movie this week? My preference is Tuesday night, if Monday I will come but will be late - 8:30ish. James you can see my equipment by clicking one of the corresponding buttons in my thread header.

    Sorry Colin can't do a movie night on that particular Monday. How about a Tuesday showing of ROTK:EE? :b

    Austin Movie Nights!

    Speaking of Cole Porter and Jazz, just finished finally seeing a really Great movie, "American Splendor." This movie was kind of like "Man On the Moon" but the biographical subject, Harvey Pekar, is still alive, and the movie all around is just better than the above. It is much more touching...

    Be sure to give Hank really good directions, remember John lives down there near Greg and we all know how well Hank found Greg's house.:) I plan to attend, may have to go to a work function that night, but may be able to get out of it.
