The Guild Screenings

June 2024

WELCOME TO THE GUILD SCREENINGS!

WGA members... welcome to your theater! The place where all movies are FREE, and conversation is always witty. You can bring TWO GUESTS to all general screenings. You can bring THREE GUESTS to Family Matinees. No reservations are required – just show up! And parking is free – we validate!

This month, summer begins, and the big titles are here! We're showing FURIOSA: A MAD MAX SAGA, THE WATCHERS, BAD BOYS: RIDE OR DIE, and BEVERLY HILLS COP: AXEL F. We have cool smaller films like HIT MAN, TUESDAY, JANET PLANET, and THE BIKERIDERS. And be sure to bring the kids to GARFIELD and INSIDE OUT 2!

We have a special event: On Friday, June 21, writer/director Aitch Alberto will discuss her touching film ARISTOTLE AND DANTE DISCOVER THE SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE. This evening is co-sponsored by the LGBTQ+ and Latinx Writers Committees. Free popcorn will be served!

We also have a full slate of Q&As. On Saturday, June 8, writer/director Joshua Margolin will speak after his fun grandma action film THELMA. On Saturday, June 15, writer/director Christy Hall will join us to discuss DADDIO, her ambitious two-hander drama. And finally, on Sunday, June 23, writers Willie Block & Jake Emanuel will appear after their rowdy murder/comedy, REUNION.
