The Guild Screenings

April 2018

Spring 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.

From big studio titles like READY PLAYER ONE, BLOCKERS and A QUIET PLACE to exciting indies like Lynne Ramsay’s YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE, BEAUTY AND THD DOGS, LITTLE PINK HOUSE, OH LUCY! and WHERE IS KYRA?, to family matinees like SHERLOCK GNOMES and hot documentaries like THE CHINA HUSTLE, April brings with it movies for every taste. We also have a number of wonderful Q&A events scheduled. 

On Friday, April 13, we welcome co-writers Bryan Woods & Scott Beck to discuss their work on the much anticipated thriller, A QUIET PLACE. The following day, Saturday, April 14, we host Diablo Cody, who will discuss what it was like to partner again with member Jason Reitman as director on their new film, TULLY. The following Saturday, April 21, co-writers Taylor Allen & Andrew Logan will join us following a screening of their intense new docudrama, CHAPPAQUIDDICK.

As always, members may bring TWO GUESTS to all regular screenings. 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!
