IMAX Holiday Movie at Riverfront Park

Greetings everyone!

Next Tuesday the 27th, we will be having a movie night at the Riverfront Park IMAX Theatre.  The movie is REAL STEEL, an exciting adventure about boxing……with giant robots 🙂  The cost is only $5.50 and starts at 7:30PM.  What a deal!!!!

What is IMAX?  According to Wikipedia, “IMAX, which stands for Image Maximum, is a motion picture format with the capacity for greater size and clearer resolution than standard movie systems.”  The screen is several time larger than a normal movie and the sound system is better as well.  It should be a fantastic experience (especially if you love boxing robots).

If you are interested in going, talk to Adam.  There will be a meeting afterschool on Tuesday to discuss where we will meet and the possibility of getting dinner before the movie starts.

If you love good times, fun movies, and GIANT ROBOTS, please come on out. 

See you there!
