Guild Screenings
FEBRUARY 2015

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

We’re starting off February with a reminder about January. On Saturday, January 31st at 8pm, we’ll be screening the critically acclaimed Australian horror film, THE BABADOOK. Don’t miss it. February offers an array of eclectic small releases, including the amazing WILD TALES (Oscar-nominated for Best Foreign Language Film), offbeat entries like SONG ONE and THE VOICES, and big studio films like JUPITER ASCENDING and FIFTY SHADES OF GREY.

If you’re a fan of FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS, make sure to check out WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS, co-written and starring Jemaine Clement on Sunday, February 8th.

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.

Please note RSVPs are NOT required unless specifically noted on the schedule.
