It was great fun seeing all those old animated commercials from the 1950s and 1960s, many of which were produced by major studios such as Disney, UPA, etc. I hope they run a program like this again in the future.

The comfy chairs in the theater...continued

Absolutely wonderful gem in LA. The Cinefamily group has done a great job with this theater and with the programs they offer. You honestly feel transported back in cinematic time as you gaze over the beautifully restored architecture, screen,...continued

Always a unique outing to this eclectic venue. One tip: the regular seats are old-fashioned and small for today's big butts. For another $5 you can sit on the comfy couches up front.

Great venue. So much fun seeing this silent documentary with live musical score. Yea, you can watch it on youtube, but seeing it on the big screen rocks!

The sound on the print of Phantasm had a hiss throughout that was very distracting, so that was a shame, but I imagine this was the best print they had available, so what can you do? We still had a great time. It was such a treat seeing the Q &...continued

This movie is amazing. Words fail me. Japanese up-skirt kung-fu love story. It's like a pinata--what more candy? more? and little toys? Amazing.

I've always wanted to check out this theater because my wife and I have been wanting to watch a silent film. We scored on some free street meter parking since it was late. Otherwise, you can park across the street on the east side of Fairfax in...continued

I always love going to the Cinefamily. Only thing I missed this time was the late great Bob Mitchell at the organ. They had a very good live pianist, but Bob was the real deal.

So cool. Bill Plympton was there in person talking about his career and his films and giving sneak previews of works in progress and his new film. Really interesting and neat to get some insight into his world. Afterwords he even drew pictures for...continued

This was our first time at The Cinefamily. We found "A Labor of Love" very entertaining. This was a brilliant concept--watching a very inept attempt at doing porno by a group that had no clue how to do it. The Q & A afterward was also very...continued

Fantastic movie (we saw the dubbed version of Spirited Away), knowledgeably introduced, comfortable seats, friendly crowd. One of the projectors wasn't working, so there were brief delays between reels; no one seemed to mind, and it was fun...continued
