Tales from the Loop

Tales from the Loop

From executive producer Matt Reeves and based on the acclaimed art of Swedish artist Simon Stålenhag, Tales from the Loop explores the town and people who live above “The Loop” a machine built to unlock and explore the mysteries of the universe – making things possible that were previously relegated only to science fiction. In this fantastical mysterious town poignant human tales are told that bare universal emotional experiences while drawing on the intrigue of genre storytelling.

This Episodic Premiere screening of Tales from the Loop will feature the Pilot followed by an extended Q&A with select cast and crew.
