The Cinema Guild has acquired all U.S. distribution rights to Jem Cohen’s drama “Museum Hours” and plans a theatrical release next year.

The film premiered at the Locarno Film Festival. Pic saw its North American preem earlier this month at the Toronto Film Festival.

Cohen’s feature-length films include “Chain,” “Benjamin Smoke,” “Instrument” and “Evening’s Civil Twilight in Empires of Tin.” The Cinema Guild’s upcoming releases include Ra’anan Alexandrowicz’s “The Law in These Parts,” Lucien Castaing-Taylor and Verena Paravel’s “Leviathan” and Raul Ruiz’s “Night Across the Street.”

Deal for “Museum” was negotiated by Ryan Krivoshey of the Cinema Guild with Pierre Menahem of MPM Film.
