Guild Screenings
JULY 2014

Welcome to your theater! Please feel free to arrive early and enjoy a little fun and gossip with your fellow writers. On weekends, we serve popcorn, beverages, salads, sandwiches, and fresh pastries.

July brings with it a wide range of films, from studio blockbusters to family films to offbeat indies, as well as a very special exclusive event. On Friday, July 11th at 7pm, we’re excited to present a screening of the new comedy TAMMY, followed by a Q&A with writer/star Melissa McCarthy and writer/director Ben Falcone. Members will be allowed only one guest to this event. If you plan to attend, please RSVP in advance by following the link in the schedule below.

The following Saturday, July 19th, we hope you’ll join us for a Q&A with writer/director John Alan Simon following a screening of his new film, an adaptation of Phillip K. Dick’s sci-fi classic RADIO FREE ALBEMUTH.

Members may bring TWO GUESTS to all screenings (*unless otherwise noted), and THREE GUESTS to Family Matinees. Also, the Activities Committee will continue their MOVIE CLUB! On Sunday, July 20th, following the 5pm screening of Woody Allen’s MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT, please join fellow writers next door on the patio at CHAKRA to socialize and discuss the film.
