    Pirates of the Caribbean | Liverpool | Friday 7th 2006

    Just been discussing with Cozmic about a mini-meet to see Pirates of the Caribbean. It's a little short notice I know, but can any other Liverpool/Merseyside people make it to Liverpool Odeon on Friday, for a 7pm showing? The film is 2 and a half hours long, so will finish (with adverts) probably at 10pm, giving us time to get back to trains. Last train heading Southport way is 11:38pm on Friday.

    Friday 7/07/06 12:00 12:30 13:00 15:30 16:00 16:30 19:00 19:30 20:00

    We also discussed getting food - any suggestions? I mentioned Yums on Bold Street, cheap eat all you can chinese, but I haven't tried it. Wetherspoons is another possibility.

    Looks like Coz lol!

    We may go to Kimo's for food beforehand

    http://www.citikey.com/business/10159366?all=kimo&city=Liverpool&current=1&total=1

    Kimo's, Mount Pleasant. Look for the entrance under a Green hoarding opposite the NCP Car Park on Mount Pleasant for one of Liverpool's favourite student eateries. It boasts a fine selection of western (a superb Club Sandwich) and arabic foods (Cous Cous, Kebabs). There is also a smaller branch near to the University of Liverpool.


    Any other Liverpool/Merseyside based people interested?

    I'm definatly there Tim. Thanks for the PM, probably wouldn't have noticed it otherwise. :D

    So about what time we meeting? Just going to bump into each other at the cinema awhile before 7 or will we be organized?

    I don't know what time we'll meet up, but I think the plan is to grab something to eat beforehand.

    If we are going to eat, do we say meet at 5pm or a little later? Where's the best place to meet? I'll be in Liverpool before then, wandering round to a few shops.

    What you reckon, do I reserve three tickets online now, for Friday 7pm showing?

    Just been on Odeon site, cheeky people want extra money for reservations, so we'll play it by ear. Plus I am not sure if we need two-four tickets (just asked another lol) and who can get themselves student ones.

    Right, just been chatting with Coz again, arrangements (unless someone really needs it changing) are -

    5pm Meet at Limestreet, I'll probs be stood outside WHSmiths in the station complex. We'll nip to the Odeon to get tickets, so we are safe. Then head for some food at Kimo's.

    7pm Be in cinema watching cool film :p

    Everyone ok with that?

    The first FF-UK:N by NW cinema mini-meet was a success :D
    Great food (Kimos was excellent Chris!), great company and a great film (though I think Chris was a little confused lol :p ). I had a good time, hope to do it again soon ;)
    I am off to see POTC2 again with my bro on Sunday hehe.

    Any plans for another cinema meet? I still haven't seen Superman Returns yet, that'd be cool.

    It's close on 154 min long (20 mins shy of three hours, not sure if that time has included adverts, trailers, etc). That will take us to nearly 11pm. I know there are trains I can get to make it home, what about other people? I probably could do Friday or Saturday this weekend.

    Well I live practically over the road from the Odeon, so getting there and back would be no problem. I'm not much of a fan of Shyamalan's work, but might give this one a shot.

    Sorry I didn't reply soon enough.
    I am going to be heading out to Liverpool soon, say about 1pm ish.

    I am going to go to the 5:45pm showing of Lady in the Water, so if anyone wants to meet me, PM me before 1pm, I can give you my moby number. It's just a last minute thing, tbh. Sorry for that.

    I will get a film guide when there, see what new stuff is out then we can arrange a better cinema meet.
