Current Screenings/Events

All screenings are subject to the following rules

BAFTA/LA is committed to a policy of punctual commencement of all screenings. To insure that our screenings accommodate the greatest possible number of members and permitted guests, and as is customary with virtually all other screening procedures, some screenings are overbooked. Members are thus reminded to always arrive as early as possible, as seating is on a "first-come, first-served" basis. So that seat availability is equitably shared, members may save only one seat for a guest or friend, which must be either filled or relinquished once the screening starts. Additional seats may not be saved. Members and guests arriving up to five minutes after the film has started will only be permitted to take available seats in the back rows of the theater.

If there is a Q&A following the screening, we urge you to stay. However, if you must leave, please do so promptly and quietly. No photography, recording or taking of notes (other than that which may be undertaken by BAFTA/LA for its archives) is permitted. A Q&A is a non-press event, and thus, if any member or guest considers this to be a conflict, we would respectfully ask you to leave prior to the Q&A.

BAFTA/LA appreciates the time and effort contributed by the talent who participate in our Q&A programs, so please do not delay their exit with personal requests or submissions.

Please turn off your cell phones and pagers before the screening, and no audio or video recording is permitted whatsoever.
