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.

October is exploding with films! 24 for you to enjoy and pick from! We've got studio titles like FIRST MAN and VENOM... smaller films like CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME? and THE KINDERGARTEN TEACHER... plus a special double feature of Orson Welles' finally finished THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WIND and the doc about it, THEY'LL LOVE ME WHEN I'M DEAD.

Plus, we have a record-setting TEN Q&A's in October. Please arrive early, as these events are very popular. On Friday, October 5, we'll have writer/director Tamara Jenkins speak after PRIVATE LIFE. The next day, co-writer/director Bradley Cooper and co-writer Eric Roth will appear with A STAR IS BORN. The day after that, writer/director Drew Goddard will talk after BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE. The day after that (whew!) we'll show WILDLIFE, with co-writer/director Paul Dano and co-writer Zoe Kazan in person.

The following week, Friday, October 12, writer/director Eva Vives will speak after her film ALL ABOUT NINA. The next day we have WHAT THEY HAD, with writer/director Elizabeth Chomko in person. The day after that, writer/director Paul Greengrass will speak after his film 22 JULY. On Friday, October 19, writer/director Jonah Hill will appear with his film MID90S.

Lastly, just as a reminder, the use of cell phones, electronic devices, and texting during the movie and unauthorized audio and video recording during Q&A’s is strictly prohibited. These activities may result in suspension from future screenings. We thank you for understanding.

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!
