Escape From Tomorrow at the Guild Cinema

Friday-Sunday, November 8-10 – 8:30 pm only!

Directed by Randy Moore – 2013 – 104m.

The most provocative film from the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, Escape From Tomorrow should not exist, and yet it does. Like nothing you’ve ever seen, Randy Moore’s directorial debut is a bold and ingenious trip into the happiest place on earth.
An epic battle begins when a middle-aged American husband and father of two learns that he has lost his job. Keeping the news from his nagging wife and wound-up children, he packs up the family and embarks on a full day of park hopping amid enchanted castles and fairytale princesses. Soon, the manufactured mirth of the fantasy land around him begins to haunt his subconscious. An idyllic family vacation quickly unravels into a surrealist nightmare of paranoid visions, bizarre encounters, and an obsessive pursuit of a pair of sexy teenage Parisians.
Chillingly shot in black and white, Escape From Tomorrow dissects the mythology of artificial perfection while subversively attacking our culture’s obsession with mass entertainment.” – Film Buff

“One of the most daring motion pictures I’ve encountered in a very, very long time. … An emotionally walloping experience that, for all its flaws, I wouldn’t have missed for the world.” – William Bibbiani, CraveOnline

” … has an otherworldly atmosphere that both hooks and engages.” – Damon Wise, Guardian [UK]

The Guild Cinema is located at 3405 Central Avenue NE, in the Nob Hill area.
