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

It was the film that gets the five stars but the theater is neat too. The Executive Director did a great introduction prior to the film and the quality of the screening was very good.

The Cinefamily is hands-down my favorite cinematheque in Los Angeles. Cinefamily operates out of the old Silent Movie Theater on Fairfax, but most screenings nowadays are not silent films. Cinefamily is run by a bunch of fun-loving film nerds...continued

The movie was AWESOME!! The seating at The Silent Movie Theater always leaves a bit to be desired, especially for a movie that runs 237 minutes, but the movie was so great that it was worth it.

The Silent Treatment events are always well put together, with excellent speakers. The film was good, not great, but had excellent production design and costumes. It was a packed house too.

We Angelenos are very fortunate that Cinefamily exists. These screenings are a fantastic opportunity to see work that's not available elsewhere.

Thank you, Cinefamily, for providing fantastic selections of cinema, as well as extra seat...continued

Wonderful evening featuring 91 year old Diana Sera Cary, aka Baby Peggy, in an entertaining and informative question and answer session. The two shorts shown were quite cute, and the feature starring her and Hobart Bosworth was very moving. The...continued

Every movie screening/PARTY I've gone to a Cinefamily has been a blast. Fun people, great movies, and superb event planning. The Snap Yourself booth is so fun!

Great place to see any movie, but absolutely adore the silent film screenings with terrific live accompaniment.

I took my 11 year old son. We saw a comedy silent film and we both enjoyed it. It started at 8:00 p.m.. unfortunately we were both too sleepy to stay for the double feature, but will definitely attend again.

I've been a fan of Cinefamily since long before I noticed they're on Goldstar. This is a venue for cinephiles of all stripe. Just the history of the theatre itself is alluring. Remember the silent movie theatre in the William Castle/Vincent Price...continued

If you haven't had the opportunity to see the uncut version of Possession (and especially if you've seen the cut version), take the opportunity to see the full film. The shots are stunning, the acting is breathtaking, and the story will most...continued

Kudos to the Cinefamily for celebrating a filmmaker as important and yet obscure as Zulawski. It was a stunning 35mm print of POSSESSION. Looking forward to the rest of the Zulawski series.

Movie was great. Time on Goldstar was wrong. It started at 10:00. Not 10:20. Luckily we checked.

So great! The Cinefamily's Senior Prom was well planned. First, we watched Carrie, then went out back for some dancing, beverages and crafts. You could make your own prom sash and there was a photobooth where you could take as many pictures as you...continued

Tab Hunter looks amazing! He was a fascinating speaker and this was so much more interesting than we thought it would be. A real treat!
