Women In Film Screening Series Presents:


Women In Film Member,

You and a guest are invited to a special screening of BOOKSMART followed by a Q&A with Writer/Producer Katie Silberman and Producer Jessica Elbaum.

Wednesday, May 8th, 6:30PM


Best friends and academic overachievers, Amy (Kaitlyn Dever) and Molly (Beanie Feldstein), thought keeping their noses to the grindstone gave them a leg up over their play-minded peers. But, on the eve of their graduation, these type-A ride-or-dies get a hardcore reality check and realize they may have missed out. Determined to make up for lost time, they decide to cram four years of not-to-be-missed fun into one night—a chaotic adventure no amount of book smarts could prepare them for.


Please arrive at least 30 minutes early.
Screenings are overbooked to compensate for no-shows.
RSVPs do not guarantee seating.

Please note: This screening is for guests 21 and over. Please be prepared to show your ID at the theater.
