This theatre is going on hiatus until after Thanksgiving. They will then be showing MY KID COULD PAINT THAT. I enjoy the films shown here, at the Manor, and the Squirrel Hill.

Update,

The website should be www.pghfilmmakers.org

My Girl Posse and I went here recently to see “Anvil, The Story of Anvil” which is a documentary on an aging metal band from Canada. Not quite “Spinal Tap” (because the band does exist), it still has its funny moments.

They have a great deal here if you go frequently. You can become a “Screenie” for $70.00. You get

12 admissions to our theaters* (can be shared with a friend)

12 free popcorns or fountain drinks (should be shared with a friend)

$10 off associate membership to Pittsburgh Filmmakers / Pittsburgh Center for the Arts

10% discount at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts’ Shop

First Class mailing of monthly film calendar

My husband and I have the “Screenie” and we share it.

“Invitations to openings and special events” should have been right underneath “First Class mailing….” (Yes, I did “cut-and-paste” from the PGH Film Makers' Site.

And yes, Cinema Treasures, please update the correct link above

71 Dude, that was a good article by Ed Blank. Thanks for posting it. I went to the Regent Square the other night to see “Animal KIngdom” and I’m gonna return next week to see the “Mesrine” series.

I encourage all film fans to support the Regent Square. They show movies that you just can’t see elsewhere.

This Theatre is on The Swissvale border in the Regent Square neighborhood. It Does Not have ANYTHING (Nor was it named after the “Regent” in East Liberty. When I lived in Swissvale I used to walk to the place often. The last movie a saw here was “The Crow” with Brandon Lee.

The “Operated By” (chain) should be Pittsburgh Filmmakers.
