Cinéma Vérité Side Quest Guide

Starting Location: Chastain Heights, the movie theater on Lamon Street.
Prerequisite: None
Best Starting Point: Just as you arrive in Chastain Heights.

  • Find the theater just west of the Centennial Building. Inside, your quest will begin. You’ll need to find some film reels, then play them.
  • Inside the Lobby, you can find the first film either at the coat check or in a back room behind the concession stand. The second film can be found in the bathroom, or in a small room right near the projection room. The last film is in the storage right of the projector room.
  • When you enter the projector room, you’ll have a new objective: find the replacement bulb. On easy, you can find a bulb inside a storage room at the back of the theater. Otherwise you’ll need to leave and find the hardware store east of the Monastery, the bulb is on a shelf behind the register.
  • Return to the projector and use the bulb. You’ll find some clues to an access code, but the number you need to input is 9241.
  • You’ll need to find one last reel. Enter the last unexplored room and use the three film reels on the film splicer to create a single film reel. Put the new film onto the projector, then run down and walk through the image.
  • Inside the movie, enter the house ahead. Past the staircase, search the left room to find a crank in the window. Leave, and head down the hallway to find a larger room with a jack-in-the-box inside. Use the crank and turn it until the present opens. Inside, you’ll find a key.
  • Take the key, and climb the ladder in the same room taking you up to the attic and a locked crate. Use your key to unlock the crate and you’ll be rewarded with the Golden Gun, a very powerful pistol.
  • Leave the film and return to the theater to complete the quest.

@Trinity God,

From what I’ve read, the code -should- be the same on all difficulties — 9241. Many places say the same thing. If that isn’t true, please let us know!
