The Guild Screenings

February 2019

Welcome to the Guild Screenings!

Please feel free to visit your theater early, to schmooze and banter with your fellow scribes. This February, we have a cornucopia of eclectic titles. From big studio extravaganzas ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL and LEGO MOVIE 2: THE SECOND PART, to genre films MISS BALA and KING OF THIEVES. From broad comedies WHAT MEN WANT and ISN'T IT ROMANTIC, to celebrated foreign titles TRANSIT and BIRDS OF PASSAGE. There's something for everyone! We also have a fun Q&A planned: On Saturday, February 2, please join writer/director Dan Gilroy with his new horror film/art world satire VELVET BUZZSAW

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!
