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 began to get restless after the THIRD time the screen went to black at the end...continued

Positively BLOWN AWAY. I had bought tickets to the LA Film Fest screening downtown a week ago and I somehow lost the tickets right before going into the theater. Low and behold, I got an email alert about it showing at the Silent Movie Theater...continued

Seeing Nosferatu in a theater, with an actually live score being played was outstanding. Great night!!

It was a lot of fun. Greg is great (I'm a big fan of "whose line is it anyway?"). Worth the drive from Long Beach.

Love the Silent Treatment evenings! The movies are rare gems and wonderful to see on a big screen with live music.

The Silent Movie Theater is a great place to see movies you otherwise wouldn't see on the big screen at an affordable price. It's a must-have experience for LA residents and visitors alike who appreciate a laid-back atmosphere to enjoy films...continued

This was my first experience at the Silent Movie Theatre since the Cinefamily took over and God knows their programming is original and quite a boon to the L.A. cinema scene, but my backside simply could not take a 4 hour movie (Love Exposure) in...continued

Cinefamily is a genuine LA gem. TV Tuesdays has been a surprisingly good curated oddities show. Consistently worthwhile and unique :)

I enjoyed the small theater's intimate setting. Members, get comfy priority seating near the screen.

I had a fantastic time watching Faces on the big screen. Not only that, Seymour Cassell himself was in attendance (unannounced, friend of Cinefamily it seems) and he gave a nice intro and was in attendance to meet/greet. Really great night.

I saw the Chaplin movie Gold Rush. Very entertaining. This place has it going on. The crowd is very mixed. Everything from early twenties on dates in large groups to college kids, parents with kids. The list of movies is impressive. October is all...continued

I'm a huge fan of silent films and so many are out-of-print. This theater is a treasure! The lobby and theater itself are beautiful. The film prints are very good. The seats are comfy. It made for a great date night!

I recommend coming...continued
