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!

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.

Fab. evening. A unique theatre with a unique presentation. Film shorts, live music by an extraordinary performer, Kevin, and even repection in the theatre's courtyard afterward!

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.

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... continued

Very good venue for it brings you back through time. We watched Charlie Chaplin and they chose one of the best of his movies. Highly recommended. It's completely a different experience. It's like experiencing 1930's without being there.

Make no mistake- the film is INCREDIBLE. The amount of archival and never-before-seen footage is astounding and it's weaved together brilliantly. However, the crowd... continued
