Dinner and a movie: Saturday, March 10th (Dinner from 5:30pm; Movie from 7pm)

Update March 3rd: Spots still remain for this event!

Join us for dinner and a movie! We're going to eat at The Eatery, a very unique restaurant on Broadway (http://www.theeatery.ca/) and then watch one of two Japanese movies. One is the Japanese version of Shall We Dance (Like the one that Richard Gere and Jennifer Lopez starred in, but much better) It is a light hearted comedy. The other is Departures and it won Best Foreign Film at the 2009 Academy Awards. It is a little more serious in tone, but very uplifting. We'll take a vote that evening which one to watch and watch the other one next time.
If you wish to watch the trailers, you can find them here:
