About Plus One

It’s that time of year: Wedding season. A dreaded and beloved part of adult life. During a hectic summer that amounts to roughly one wedding per weekend, two jaded college buddies Ben and Alice (Jack Quaid and Maya Erskine) make a pact to survive the onslaught together. As they craft, deliver, and sit through cringe-inducing toast after toast to legions of newly married friends and family (including Ben’s dad, an enjoyable Ed Begley Jr.), they shuttle through singles tables in search of fellow lonelyhearts or at least temporary distractions.

Co-directors Jeff Chan and Andrew Rhymer have crafted a hilariously relatable alcohol and insecurity-laden world where sincere affection and real feelings nevertheless shine through. The sparkling chemistry and witty banter between Quaid and Erskine anchor their rollercoaster of a relationship as they move between desperation, elation, denial, and horniness. A fresh rom-com for anyone who has ever been banished to the singles table.

Presented courtesy of RLJE Films. Runtime: 98 minutes. English.

About the Alumni Screening Series

The USC School of Cinematic Arts invites you to an exciting free screening series featuring a dynamic selection of new feature films by alumni and faculty throughout 2018. All screenings and events will be free of charge and open to the public, although we do ask for an electronic reservation for each screening, which can be made through the website for each individual screening.

Check-in & Reservations

This screening is free of charge and open to the public. Please bring either a printed or digital confirmation of your reservation, which will automatically be sent to your e-mail account upon successfully making an RSVP through this website.

All SCA screenings are OVERBOOKED to ensure seating capacity in the theater, therefore seating is not guaranteed based on RSVPs. Doors will open at 6:30 P.M. and the RSVP list will be checked in on a first-come, first-served basis until the theater is full. Once the theater has reached capacity, we will no longer be able to admit guests, regardless of RSVP status.

Limited handicap seating is available. For guests with disabilities who require special accommodations, please contact Matthew Meier at mmeier@cinema.usc.edu with the subject line: "Accommodations Request – PLUS ONE."

Parking

Please note that this screening is located in the Interactive Media Building Screening Room (SCI 106). The Interactive Media Building (SCI) is located on the corner of McClintock and 35th Street. SCI 106 is on the southern end of the building on the first floor.

The USC School of Cinematic Arts is located at 900 W. 34th St., Los Angeles, CA 90007. Parking passes may be purchased for $12.00 at the McClintock Avenue Entrance (formerly Gate #5) or Royal Street Entrance (formerly Gate #4) on W. Jefferson Blvd. We recommend parking in the Royal Street Parking Structure (formerly PSD), at the far end of 34th Street. Metered street parking is also available along Jefferson Blvd, with limited non-metered spaces also available north of Jefferson and throughout the surrounding neighborhood. Especially if you plan to utilize street parking, we HIGHLY recommend arriving at least 30 minutes before the screening, as parking can be difficult to find and it may take time to walk to the theater from your parking space.
