About Us

Marquee Trivia was started in 2019 by Wesley Emblidge and James Macon, two staff members from Independent Film Festival Boston.

Feeling a severe lack of challenging film trivia in the Boston area, we created this monthly trivia night to help bring the city’s film community closer together. Every month we dive into movie marginalia, Oscars history, box office stats, [insert uproariously funny, critically acclaimed, extremely relatable, and slightly spicy movie joke here], and more! Not to mention: we have fabulous film-related prizes for the winning team.

For more information and to stay up-to-date with all our events, sign up for the newsletter and follow us on social media below!

See you at trivia!
