Thu September 17 at 8:00 PM, The New Parkway Theater
474 24th Street, Oakland, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
Dear locals, please join me for the next meetup at Oakland's New Parkway Theater for a showing of Airplane!, a classic comedy from 1980. Don't like movies? No worries! Buy a drink, get some food, and just hang out with fellow MeFites between 8 pm and 9:30, when the movie starts.
As blockbuster movie nights sometimes sell out, you may want to buy your ticket in advance. Give me a shout if Thursdays suck for you and we'll try a Friday night next time.

Airplane!? In a theater?! Surely you can't be serious!

This is all fine and good, but when will the Parkway get some movies about gladiators?

I am so in. And don't call me Shirley.

This is beyond my current planning event horizon but it sounds pretty damn great.

Hmmmm...I live in Oakland. And I don't have a show that night. So maybe? I haven't actually seen Airplane!, so I suppose I ought to get on with my pop culture education.

Why pretend, we all know perfectly well what this is about. You want me to have an abortion.

I would love to go but have other plans that night. But no plans on Friday! I'll check and see if it changes.

Alas, smartyboots, it is a 1-night only event.

I love sleeping in movie theaters.

I wish this wasn't on a school night :( I just want to tell anyone who's going good luck. We're all counting on you.

Hey folks, a reminder that The New Parkway has food and beverages. Also, classic movies sometimes sell out in advance. I'm not sure I'll actually stick around for the movie itself (it's a school night!) but I will be there at 8 pm until when the movie starts at 9:30 to meet 'n' greet any MeFites who make an appearance.

I may pop in briefly. Not staying for the actual movie.

Yay, halifix, if you can make it, great. I'm DB and I'll be wearing red shoes, striped socks and a vintage red Mother Jones Magazine tee.
