Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles alongside modern intimacy brand maude, today announce the launch of a limited series of film screenings curated by TeaTime Pictures Co-Founders Dakota Johnson and Ro Donnelly, commencing Thursday, August 4th. The screenings will take place every Thursday evening throughout August 2022 at The Theatre at Ace Hotel, with programming from notable writers, directors, critics, and cast members. The series hinges on firsts: first loves, new beginnings, flings that carry from day to night, and will include movies ranging from coming-of-age classics about young romance to films that depict how relationships change and grow through life. Net profits from ticket sales will go to SIECUS, an organization that advances sex education.
