Today (8/14) is the opening day for Miyazaki's newest movie, Gake no ue no Ponyo:

And there is talk about seeing it after the picnic (8/15), possibly in cosplay!
Who's interested?

We weren't looking to do a large group, but just a few of us were planning on going to the last showing at 9:20pm. It's easier for us time wise. The showing before that is 6:50pm and all other showings are during the picnic. But those are the only 2 evening times listed. Tickets are cheap too! under $9! I saw a trailer for it and it made me so happy! It mixed my love for The Little Mermaid and Miyazaki's movies! ^__^ I hope it's good! (Although I have no doubts, they seem to get better every year. ^_^)

Hmm... 6:50pm seems doable... I kind of don't want to go to such a late showing...
Is that the only theater showing it?
I'll do a quick search.

I also wonder if we should reserve tickets...

Oh wow! Crossgates is too?! That's awesome! No one has to go with us, that's just time that works for us. I may still go to the Spectrum, it seems cheaper.

Depending on if anyone wants to see the earlier 6:45/6:50 showing, I may try to join you guys :3

Ok so we're doing Crossgates at 9:15pm now. So far I have Jen, me, Kim, and Alyssa. If anyone else really wants to go at that time, we can do a meetup I guess. The 6:45 is really just pushing it for us.

Ok nice -- I suspect any further planning will be done at the picnic itself XD

I was happy to see so many people from the picnic there -- I think we were about 20 people strong, and we were about 75% of the people in the theater! (of course, it's too bad there weren't more people ;_; -- The theater was kind of empty)

I took a few groups pictures -- I will post soon!

Do you know if they will have more showings? I wanted to go so badly but already had plans with my hubby in Schenectady.
