Guild Screenings
SEPTEMBER 2014

Welcome to your theater! Please feel free to arrive early and enjoy a little fun and gossip with your fellow writers. On weekends, we serve popcorn, beverages, salads, sandwiches, and fresh pastries.

September brings with it another eclectic schedule of films, including a pair of back-to-back Q&A’s. First up, on Saturday, September 13th at 5pm, please join us for a screening of THE SKELETON TWINS followed by a Q&A with screenwriters Craig Johnson and Mark Heyman. And on Sunday, September 14th at 8pm, we’ll be screening THE DROP starring Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini in his final big screen performance, followed by a Q&A with author/screenwriter Dennis Lehane.

Members may bring TWO GUESTS to all screenings and THREE GUESTS to Family Matinees. As always, we ask that members frequent the food and drink offerings from Homeboy Industries before the film. Only popcorn and water are allowed inside the theater, and for the enjoyment of all, we ask that patrons do not bring in their own food. Thank you so much, and enjoy this month’s movies!
