Nia DaCosta will be a guest programmer for the Alamo Drafthouse "Guest Selects" program, "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."

DaCosta has selected five films to screen as part of the program, starting with School Of Rock. The films were chosen by the Candyman director to center around the creation of art, a theme prevalent in her upcoming movie. What movies are on the roster? Black Swan, Phantom Thread, Portrait Of A Lady On Fire, School Of Rock and Shadow Of The Vampire.

“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.
