Guess the Theme: A commonality connects these films... can you figure it out?

Guess the Theme – March Results, April Movies

Congratulations to the Jordan Delgado, CAS/BA ’25, for winning the March Guess the Theme contest! Their correct guess entered them into a random drawing for a free drink token from the Davenport Coffee Lounge. Were you also able to figure out the theme? As a reminder, the movies were: 21 Jump StreetBridesmaidsForgetting Sarah MarshallKnocked UpA Quiet Place, and Blockers. The theme was “Films that Premiered at SXSW.” This one was pretty tricky, but following the hint should have led you to this blog post which included all six of the Guess the Theme films on our list of favorite movies from SXSW in our collection. That’s how Jordan was able to guess the theme correctly after getting nowhere by looking at things like cast, crew, genre, etc. (which is a good starting point for other month’s themes). Their favorite movie from the list is 21 Jump Street.

If you want a chance to win your own Dav token, make sure to stop by the Guess the Theme poster near the Circulation Desk on the first floor of the library and submit your guess for April’s contest. This month’s theme also comes with a hint: You may need to check out the bonus features. The movies for this month are down below:
