Parking and Guest Passes

The Basics
Season Parking Passes and Parking Coupons will go on sale beginning Friday, May 13 at the Cashiers Window at 5757 Wilshire Blvd. Members who order parking when they sign up will receive their parking order (coupons or a  parking voucher) via U.S. mail, along with their Film Society membership card, about one week before the start of the screenings, which will begin on Memorial Day weekend, May 27 & May 28, 2016 at the Directors Guild of America.

Parking Passes and Coupons
Parking is available beneath the DGA building, 7920 Sunset Blvd. (enter on Hayworth Ave. near Sunset) and directly across Hayworth beneath the DGA Sunset-Lofts, 7950 Sunset Blvd. Beginning Friday, May 13, Season Parking passes can be purchased for $90.00 from the Cashiers Window.  Parking coupon books, which contain 10 coupons per book, can also be purchased from the SAG-AFTRA Cashiers Window, which is located inside the Membership office (see hours, below) for $40. Without a pass or coupon, DGA will charge $8 cash per car. Parking passes, coupon books, and extra guest passes are valid for one season; they are not refundable and they expire at the end of the season—April 30, 2017. Please note that members are responsible for their parking passes and coupons. The Film Society cannot replace lost or stolen parking passes or coupons. 

Extra Guest Passes
The Film Society membership card allows the member to enter the screenings with one free guest on their card. On specific films, however, extra guest passes will be sold and accepted on an extremely limited basis.  When available, the passes are sometimes offered on the late screenings, such as the 9 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. screenings. Members should be aware that the extra guest passes are generally not made available until Film Society is well beyond the halfway point of the season. If you have any questions about the extra guest passes, please contact the Film Society office at, (323) 549-6658, or watch for email announcements regarding the use or restriction of the extra guest passes. When available, extra guest passes are sold for $10 per extra guest pass from the Cashiers Window only – they are not sold at the theater Extra guest passes are not accepted at bonus screenings, or any of the special event or limited-seating opportunity screenings. Extra guest passes are not film-specific, but please keep in mind that extra guest passes expire at the end of the season, April 30, 2017.  (Note: Members who bring unpaid extra guests to the theater will be fined $17.50 per extra guest. A second occurrence will result in the cancellation of the membership.)

Cashiers Window
The SAG-AFTRA Cashiers Window, which is located at 5757 Wilshire Blvd. on the 1st floor Membership Office, is open Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.– 4:30 p.m., excluding holidays. The Cashiers Window accepts cash, checks or money orders.

DGA Parking
REMINDER: The DGA garage opens 45 minutes prior to each screening. Members should not attempt to enter the parking lot prior to this time as the City will be citing vehicles that line up early and impede traffic flow. Upon completion of the screening, members and guests have 30 minutes to exit the parking lot. Members and guests may not park in any surrounding residential or permit parking areas, unless they have a valid permit to do so. (Please note: the City of West Hollywood Sheriff’s Department will be citing any vehicles in the vicinity of the DGA that do not obey all traffic laws and street signs.) As a condition of admittance to the DGA property, members and guests consent to a search of their vehicle, belongings and person. SAG-AFTRA Film Society members and their guests who fail to comply with the parking rules risk the cancellation of their membership. 

Important Parking Notice:
The DGA will provide free parking in its facilities for all SAG-AFTRA members and their guests who display a DMV issued disabled person placard. 

Furthermore, we wanted to remind all of our members the following when using the DGA parking facilities:

  • Film Society members and their guests should have their current season pass, parking coupon, or $8 cash payment ready when pulling into the DGA lots to avoid delays in entering the parking facilities. Please provide exact change if possible as a courtesy to your fellow members. 
  • Please obey all signage especially when entering and exiting the DGA parking structures. Please be advised when exiting the west DGA parking structure, members must adhere to the posted "No Right Turn" directional signage. 

Patrons wishing to discuss accommodations for a disability should contact the Film Society office in advance.

Please contact the Film Society office at if you have any questions.
