    A new movie is opening this Friday called Pirate Radio.

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1131729/

    It’s a fictionalized account of pirate radio broacasters on ships off the U.K. in the 1960s inspired by real events, presumably Radio Caroline and similar stations. Has a great cast and good director so should be fun. Themes are freedom, government censorship, doing stuff in international waters that can’t be done on land, etc., that definitely relate to seasteading Friday was a bit too near in time to organize, but a bunch of us are planning to see the 7:15 showing on Wednesday the 17th at the Palo Alto Square Cinemark:

    At the Palo Alto Square:

    which is on the Northeast corner of El Camino and Page Mill Road in Palo Alto. There’s lots of parking there after business hours since Palo Alto Square is also a major office building.

    There’s a Fish Market restaurant about 100 yards South on El Camino which has excellent seafood and steaks where we could go for dinner after the movie around 9.

    The restaurant closes at 9:30, but I may give them a call to see if we can get in if it gets near that time. FWIW It’s one of my favorite restaurants. They have extremely fresh fish cooked simply in a variety of ways, the best of which is mesquite grilled IMO. The food is so good that you may find that you like fish, even if you don’t like fish, if you know what I mean. :)

    There are also many good restaurants on California Street to the north, but they may also close around 9 or 10 on weekdays.

    Obviously this would be for folks near Silicon Valley, but folks in other areas may want to organize a similar movie night out with other Seasteaders and interested folks.
