Hello!  Just as the weather turns tolerable, we'll be inside the theater to see Glory! It's tomorrow, 7/21 at 1:00.  As always we'll gather in the lobby behind the ticket counter around noon at Emagine Willow Creek off 169 and Betty Crocker Blvd/Shelard Parkway.  Look for the Backlot banner and a lot of excited folks talking movies.  Join us if you're able.

The Godfather II is in theaters 11/10, 11/12, and 11/13.  We're going to the 3 pm show at the Emagine Willow Creek (off 169 and Betty Crocker Blvd/Shelard Parkway and will meet in the lobby behind the ticket counter around 2 pm.  

We're also making our way through the Movie Night Menus book - we're up to The Thin Man and will meet on 11/16.  Anyone have a good substitute for oysters on the half shell?

Our movie book club is taking a two month break for the holidays, but we've picked the book we'll discuss in January.  "Bring on the Empty Horses" by David Niven.  I read it 40 - ish years ago and loved it.  How will it stand up in re-reading??

Have what she's having!  This Sunday 12/1/19 we're meeting for the 4:00 screening of When Harry Met Sally at Emagine Willow Creek (off 169 at Shelard Parkway/Betty Crocker Drive).  We'll meet up around 3:00 in the lobby behind the ticket counter.

Then on 12/8 meet us for Meet Me in St. Louis. Same place, but the movie will be at 1:00 that day, so we'll meet around noon.

Yay! the 2020 Fathom Big Screen line up comes out 12/4. Once those are available we'll decide dates for our January book club - Bring on the Empty Horses by David Niven - and dinner + movie - Chained w/ Joan Crawford. It'll be a "farm to table" lunch menu, according to the TCM Movie Night Menus book.  

Respond here with questions or email Ellen at tcmisfitsbacklot@gmail.com

New year, new venue!

We'll be seeing An American in Paris this Sunday (1/19/20) at Southdale AMC.  The movie's at 1 and we'll meet around noon in the little seating area by DeLeo Pizza and the Sports Barber Shop (just into the mall if you enter from the theater/France Ave side).   

If you want to meet up with local classic movie fans, we'll be there!
