Just reached our first IG milestone! Thank you for keeping up with all our #Cinexperiences 🎞 #BeyondTheScreen

Locked, so not yet loaded.
But just one week until @ChristopherNolanOfficial's @DunkirkMovie on #70mm! #ComingSoon

We had double the frightening fun yesterday with two #CountGoreDeVol presents screenings! The stakes were high and the competition was fierce during the #Alien egg toss challenge. We have a horror filled summer planned -- up next: #DrSarcofiguy hosting @PoltergeistMovie, + the #EvilDead trilogy, and #NobuhikoObayashi's 1977 classic HOUSE.
And, stay tuned for the next Count Gore Presents announcement! 📸 @bruce_guthrie #CreatureFeature #Tarantula #Hausu #Horror #SciFi #Cinexperience

When you're showing a documentary about the revival of winemaking in the #Priorat region of Catalonia, #Spain, you offer a tasting of some of the wines after the film, of course.

Thank you actress @theamarin for joining us last night to celebrate #Romanian cinema and the 10th anniversary of the award-winning 4 MONTHS, 3 WEEKS, AND 2 DAYS. Great conversation after the film and lovely reception hosted by @romania.in.us. 📸 @bruce_guthrie for AFI

In another AFI episode of "Hey, isn't that...?...it was a great honor to host Cecilia Marshall tonight, with sons Thurgood Jr., and John W., for a private preview screening of MARSHALL, a film about Supreme Court Justice and civil rights icon #ThurgoodMarshall's life.

Actor @cuzintoma (center) joined us last night for @aferimfilm, part of our Reinventing Realism: New Films from #Romania series. Thanks to our partners @romania.in.us -- they'll be hosting a reception after the special guest screening on 5/30. Hit the link in our bio for the remaining films in the series!

If you were walking around @dtsilverspring on Thursday night and thought to yourself, "Hey, isn't that...", you were right! Director #BarryLevinson was in the house on Thursday night to receive the @e_dcjcc's Visionary Award (and hanging on Ellsworth) on night two of the Washington Jewish Film Festival. He stuck around to chat after the screening of his film LIBERTY HEIGHTS. 📸 @bruce_guthrie #WJFF #Latergram

Loving the poster for this long-lost #filmnoir psychological drama, written and directed by THE OUTER LIMITS creator and Orson Welles protégé #LeslieStevens.  Made on the cusp of the sexual revolution, the film was restored from 35mm elements previously thought lost. Only three screenings of this gem, and they begin Sunday. We dare you to watch the trailer and not become completely transfixed. #PrivateProperty #Noir #WarrenOates

Filmmaker #JohnSayles and producer #MaggieRenzi join DC Labor FilmFest Director Chris Garlock underneath the Silver marquee while their film screens to a sold-out crowd. They''ll join us in conversation following the screening! #Matewan #35mm #Cinexperience

It was a pleasure to have director @AzazelJacobs ('01 @americanfilminstitute Conservatory grad) and actor #TracyLetts join us for a special advance screening of #TheLovers last night! Our members really enjoyed the film and great post-screening dialogue. #Cinexperience #AFIMemberEvent

"Welcome to AFI, I'm Frank. I'm guessing you want two tickets to the 4K Restoration of the Director's Cut of #DonnieDarko. The Sunday or Monday night show?" #MadWorld
