An Owl, David Bowie, or Movie Club: The October GMC Poll

 As we’ve discussed in a previous post, this will be my first time seeing Labyrinth, so please excuse the absence of my usual hilarity. With that in mind, please join me Thursday, September 26 at 6:45 p.m. for a magical adventure. We’re also working on some post-movie trivia, so stay tuned for more information.

We decided to try something a little different with voting this month: a theme. In honour of Halloween, please choose one of the following movies as your selection for Guelph Movie Club Episode 10 (October). You can vote for your choice via this handy dandy GMC poll. If you click on the movie's title, it'll take you to IMDB for more information on the film; click on the button to vote. Note that you can only vote once; after that the poll won't appear when you view this blog.

Which film would you like to see for the October Guelph Movie Club?
Voting ends Thursday, September 19, at midnight.

Will I love Labyrinth? Will I hate it? Will I blame all of you for making me watch it (kidding)? I don’t know, but we’ll do it together September 26 at 6:45 p.m.

Till then, see you at the movies.

Adventure, Magic, David Bowie Music, and Movie Club

Remember that scene in Labyrinth where David Bowie, as Jareth the Goblin King, says.... Hang on a second. I have to level with you. I’ve never seen Labyrinth. Look, it was bound to happen. Each of us, I’m sure, has a movie—some beloved classic—that we haven’t seen.

Here’s what I do know: barn owl, Jennifer Connelly, David Bowie’s tight pants. Here’s another thing I know: Thursday, September 26 at 6:45 p.m.—we’re watching Labyrinth.

We’re also working on some post-movie fun. The cinema team and I are working on putting together some movie trivia fun. We haven’t worked out all the details yet, but it’s just another part of our efforts to make movie club bigger and better.

Will there be excitement? Will there be prizes? Stay tuned to Twitter and Facebook for more details.

Before the movie starts, I’ll be announcing the winning movie for Episode 10, the October GMC (the short list for that should be ready for voting soon). And after the movie, you'll have a chance to nominate movies for Episode 11, so start thinking about what movie you’d like to see back on the big screen.

Don’t forget to visit the Bookshelf Facebook and Twitter pages for voting and more details!

Till then, see you at the movies.
