Sounds like this Friday night might be awfully busy, with an opportunity for fine dancing, but if anyone is still free there is a neat movie playing at the Missouri Theater. There's always so much to do in Columbia, sometimes its hard to decide! The Ragtag Film Series is opening Pan's Labyrinth at the Missouri Theater at 7pm Friday night. While I can't say exactly what the movie is about, it sounds kind of mysterious and fantastic and I thought it might peak the interest of the LB community - the adults at least, as its rated R. While it has received rave reviews from critics, Pan's Labyrinth blends science fiction, horror, and fantasy and isn't for the faint of heart. The movie tells the story of a little girl in postwar Spain who escapes real world violence by creating her own "gothic fairy tale" world. Looks pretty visually stunning so I'm excited to catch the premier on a big screen. If anyone else is interested, I'd love to hang out - no event stamps, no logbooks, NO COOTIES, just pizza and a movie. How about Shakespeare's Pizza at 5:30 this Friday, Feb 9? Then we can walk over to the theater - just next door - after dinner. Tickets are $8 for gen. admission, $6 for students. If you'd like more info on the movie, check out http://www.ragtagfilm.com/, or the movie's website http://www.panslabyrinth.com/. If possible, let me know if you plan to come with so I can save seats. Sounds like we'll have a great weekend, even if it stays cold!
