Guild Screenings
NOVEMBER 2014

Welcome to your theater! Please feel free to arrive early and enjoy a little fun and gossip with your fellow writers.

We’re in the thick of awards season, and November’s schedule couldn’t be more exciting. In addition to our always eclectic lineup of big and small films we have a bunch of high profile screenwriter panels...

On Friday, November 7th we’ll be screening NIGHTCRAWLER, followed by a Q&A with writer/director Dan Gilroy. The following Friday, November 14th, we’ll welcome E. Max Frye and Dan Futterman to the Guild Theater stage after a screening of their new film FOXCATCHER. On Sunday, November 16th at 2:30pm we’ll be showing INTERSTELLAR followed by a Q&A with writer Jonathan Nolan and writer/director Christopher Nolan. Finally, on Sunday, November 23rd we’ll be sitting down with writer Graham Moore following his film THE IMITATION GAME.

Members may bring TWO GUESTS to all screenings (*unless otherwise noted), and THREE GUESTS to Family Matinees. As always, 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. Thank you so much, and enjoy this month’s movies!
