- tíc Welcome Event 12 September 2020
5 Jun 2020. After weeks of event cancellations, it was with great enthusiasm that I heard movie theaters could reopen on June 1st. 🙂
Pathé was careful to stick to the required 1.5 meter distance and we were assigned seats individually as we entered the theater. We sat in pairs with 3 seats and 2 rows separating guests. The Gentlemen, a combination gangster/shoot-em-up and comedy film, was a good choice and just what we needed.
There were big names such as Matthew McConaughey, Colin Farrell and Hugh Grant in the film and the latter was my favorite, in a completely different kind of role for him. As a gay underworld figure, Grant was trying to blackmail a drugs boss and calling everyone “dahling” in the process of negotiations.
It was also fun to see Farrell as a coach who exclusively
wore odd, colorful plaid training suits and Michelle Dockery as a sexy drug boss’s wife instead of dressed in Downton Abbey period costumes. We all laughed a lot! (more…)
31 Jan 2020. On the last day of January, we had the first movie night of 2020. ☺ tíc members met at Pathé to view 1917 – a new movie about the First World War.
For those who have not seen this award-winning film, director Sam Mendes filmed in the “one-shot” format, stretching it out to feature length. Several takes and set-ups are seamlessly conjoined to give the appearance of a continuous cinematic point-of-view, albeit with periodic ellipses. The result is an immersive drama that leads the viewer through the trenches and battlefields of northern France, as two young British soldiers attempt to make their way through enemy lines on 6 April 1917.

22 Nov 2019. On Friday we went to see a movie ‘The Good Liar.’ The movie took unanticipated turns and kept the audience in suspense. I found the quality of acting very good.
We went to the Havana café for drinks afterwards. It was a very relaxed evening. I had a lot of fun hearing about cross-cultural experiences in different countries. I laughed so much that my mascara started leaking at some point.
