That would be pretty cool. It would have to be planned pretty far in advance to give people a chance to get the invites and make arrangements. But, I would definitely be into that if we could swing it just once in our lifetime. We have all seen the movie enough times alone, now to share it with kindred spirits. Question is where?

Im in. I also agree it does need to be planned pretty advanced. Also so I can go on a scavenger hunt for some Suntory whiskey :P

yeah, we could rent a salon, buy a movie projector and watch LIT in our mini-cinema room.

After that we could throw a party whilst listening the LIT soundtrack, drink suntory whiskey (exept for the minors of course :) ), discuss the movie, and get to know each other.

We could even have a kareoke!!!

I think it would be fun

The Karaoke is a good idea! Sounds like a plan. We can stew the idea until we have enough people to make it worth it....and possibly by that time the minors won't be minor anymore! :-)

Suntory Whisky here we come!

:P

the thought has crossed my mind before...though some kind of gathering could never be anywhere else but the Park Hyatt itself of course. Any excuse to go back to Japan......

Tokyo or bust!!! besides, with half of us in Europe and half in the u.s, it would seem to be nicely in the middle.....(give or take a few thousand miles)

definitely more than a few months....it would be good to choose some sort of significant date though, perhaps the day they started or finished filming? to my recollection it was filmed in september or october.....

:shock: Wow, very ambitious. Much distance would have to be travelled by some of us. If we can get a good look at where everyone is located, that would make choosing a location a bit easier for everybody. But yes, I second the motion that notice be given in months. Pretty big plan. :)

Park Hyatt would be the ultimate LIT experience, but for some of us, it's going to be a pain in the butt to arrange everything we need to get there, maybe we should wait a few years, let the idea cook up. In the meanwhile, we should try to make this plan more available to everyone.

I agree, the Park Hyatt in Tokyo would obviously be the ultimate choice and experience. Now, how plausible would that be though. I wonder what the cost would be (excluding air fare which would be different for everyone). Someone could plan this for a couple of years down the road, get a list of places to visit in Tokyo and Kyoto which could be referred to as the LiT Tour. We would definitely have to Karaoke in that same venue!

It's a dream, but don't some dreams become reality?

I'm pretty sure I won't be able to get to the Park Hyatt :lol: . This thread should probably be moved to the lounge.

erm...i guess it means nothing that i'll probably be in and around tokyo in the next couple of months? that's a shame...this is a great idea indeed. once in a lifetime opportunity if it happened.
