Alamo Drafthouse’s “Guest Selects” Programming Series Continues With CANDYMAN Filmmaker Nia DaCosta

Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is proud to announce filmmaker Nia DaCosta will participate in Guest Selects, the theater’s new and ongoing retrospective that invites the movie-eatery’s favorite filmmakers, writers and performers to draw on their diverse backgrounds and eclectic tastes to program films that they think are essential big-screen experiences. This September, Alamo Drafthouse audiences can experience SCHOOL OF ROCK on the big screen, selected by filmmaker Nia DaCosta, the director and co-writer of the highly anticipated horror film CANDYMAN (in theaters August 27).

In her Guest Selects video, set to run in Alamo Drafthouse theaters across the country, DaCosta discusses five films she loves that center around the creation of art — BLACK SWAN, PHANTOM THREAD, PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE, SCHOOL OF ROCK and SHADOW OF THE VAMPIRE — mirroring a central theme of CANDYMAN.

“Thank you Alamo Drafthouse for the opportunity to participate in the Guest Selects program. I’m excited for everyone to experience CANDYMAN on the big screen, as well as these films I love about making art,” said DaCosta.

CANDYMAN is DaCosta’s second directorial effort following her critically acclaimed debut film LITTLE WOODS. She is next set to helm Marvel Studios’ THE MARVELS with Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson starring.

Night Shyamalan, who programmed RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK and JAWS, two of his “North Star” films that guide him as a filmmaker.
