Behind the Camera Series

Behind the Camera is an ongoing series featuring a first-run film with  in-person conversations with directors, actors, writers, producers and other members of the filmmaking team.
This series was created to afford our film community the unique opportunity to see behind-the-camera live, as we explore the creative process of bringing script to screen.

Prepare for lift-off at 5:00 pm with screenwriter Rose Gilroy, who wrote the soon-to-be-released romantic comedy, FLY ME TO THE MOON, starring Scarlett Johansson and Channing Tatum.  Q&A following the film.  TICKETS>

FLY ME TO THE MOON marks Gilroy’s first script that has been set up and sold at a studio and has solidified Gilroy as a screenwriter on the rise. The script was acquired by Apple in a $100 million deal following a bidding war in 2022.  Additionally, her wilderness thriller, “The Pack” is in development with Alexander Skarsgård set to direct and co-star with Florence Pugh. Gilroy recently garnered a spot on the 2023 Variety "10 Screenwriters to Watch" list. Scarlett Johansson produced alongside Jonathan Lia and Keenan Flynn through their These Pictures production company. “The totally original script by Rose Gilroy was what excited me most about this film, shared Johansson in an interview. "It is a big picture movie that feels both nostalgic and so modern and the kind of movie I'm always reaching for that you rarely get to see in theaters these days”.  Gilroy didn’t plan on joining the family business -  grandfather Frank (“The Subject Was Roses”), her uncle Tony (“Michael Clayton”) and her father Dan (“Nightcrawler”) have all earned acclaim for their writing as well.

Fly Me To The Moon


FLY ME TO THE MOON is a sharp, stylish comedy-drama set against the high-stakes backdrop of NASA’s historic Apollo 11 moon landing. Brought in to fix NASA’s public image, sparks fly in all directions as marketing maven Kelly Jones (Johansson) wreaks havoc on launch director Cole Davis’s (Tatum) already difficult task. When the White House deems the mission too important to fail, Jones is directed to stage a fake moon landing as back-up and the countdown to the launch begins. 


"Enhancing its appeal, the Cameo recently launched a cinematic exploration series titled “Behind the Camera” that further elevates the charm of this intimate, velvet-seated movie theater in the heart of the Napa Valley.  From the initial concept to the polished final product, the series offers a window into the craft that transforms compelling narratives into cinematic art."  -
