To the City Council: Thank you for your efforts to preserve the Guild as a Menlo Park "institution" these many years. We hope for new life with the new Guild, and film programming there when it opens, as one of the arts public benefits. Here's your invitation to tonight's special "Goodbye Guild" event before its last film on Thursday. We've gotten good publicity for tonight's special screening of "Cinema Paradiso" and hope you can attend. See Sam Whiting's article: https://datebook.sfchronicle.com/movies-tv/guild-theatre-in-menlo-park-to-close. You've welcome to share brief comments with me before the film starts at 7pm. Here's what we're posting today as a reminder to our posts Monday and Tuesday in various social media, including nextdoor.com.

A REMINDER: COME TONIGHT, SEPT. 25th FOR A SPECIAL FREE SCREENING OF “CINEMA PARADISO”, screening at 7pm. This is a “Goodbye Guild Theater” event before it closes on the 26th.

The supporters of the Save the Guild Theater petition were planning to have a “Goodbye Guild” event at the theater at its closing. including a free screening at the theater of the wonderful Italian film “Cinema Paradiso,” called a “cinema love song” by reviewers. But we had only a few days to put this event together after a surprise announcement Sept. 20th from Landmark that the theater was closing after its regular schedule Sept. 26th. Thanks to Drew Dunlevie of the Peninsula Arts Guild (which owns the building), Landmark has given us tonight to hold our special event!

We had more than 4000 signatures on our Save the Guild Theater petition and petition organizer, Judy Adams, who lives down the street from the Guild, thanks everyone involved! But whether you signed the petition or not, please bring your family, friends and neighbors to the special film honoring our 90+ year old Guild theater tonight. We may be able to schedule another screening in a larger venue in the future, but TONIGHT is the formal goodbye to the Guild. Don’t miss the special free screening of “Cinema Paradiso. We expect the doors to open around 6:30 or we will form a line then. Film at 7.No charge, no tickets! Refreshments at the concession stand will be at the usual cost. Give the Guild a great send-off TONIGHT!
