The Guild Screenings

June 2018

Greetings from the Guild Screenings! Remember: Parking is now FREE at our Theater on garage levels 4 and up. Enter/Exit at alley gate only.

Well, summer is officially here! It’s June, and that means we bring out the big guns – INCREDIBLES 2, JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM, OCEAN’S 8, and SICARIO: DAY OF THE SOLDADO. We also have some wonderful indies, such as the gently humanistic A KID LIKE JAKE, the affecting LEAVE NO TRACE, and the movie-loving GODARD MON AMOUR. We also have a ton of fabulous documentaries, particularly the remarkable, unpredictable THREE IDENTICAL STRANGERS, the empowering RBG, and the wonderful Fred Rogers story, WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR.

We also have a special Q&A event this month. On Sunday, June 3, horrormeister Leigh Whannell (SAW, INSIDIOUS) will speak after UPGRADE, which he wrote and directed. Join us!

As always, members may bring TWO GUESTS to all regular screenings, except where noted. Seating is first come, first serve. We ask that members frequent the food and drink offerings from Homeboy Industries before the film. On weekends, we serve popcorn, beverages, salads, sandwiches, and fresh pastries. Only popcorn and water are allowed inside the theater, and patrons may not bring in outside food. We'll see you at the movies!
