Movie Chat this weekend features the delectable double bill of Johnny Depp and our very own Orlando Bloom in “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl!” Join us Saturday on our IRC server at 5:30 pm EST when we pop our copies of the movie into the DVD player. After the usual confusion we’ll all press play on our individual players and proceed to cheer and jeer (or discuss and argue, if you like!) the finer points of the film. We plan to take a break midway through the film, to allow for stretching of fingers and backs. Barliman will be on hand to serve drinks and snacks (and to enforce the house rules).
Also, please check out our tentative Summer Schedule below, as voted on by the fine folks in Barliman’s chat room. Upcoming featured films include: a double-feature of ‘Alien’ and ‘Aliens,’ ‘Galaxy Quest,’ ‘Ghostbusters,’ and ‘Princess Bride.’ [About IRC chat]
