Review from Andrea Szeredy

The 1st movie, "What?" left you asking that very question?? The 2nd movie, "Alice In Wonderland" was such a parody, the audience was in hysteria throughout the movie. The seats are way too uncomfortable to sit through 2 movies. Other than that,...continued

I went to a silent movie last night for the first time. The feature and the short films before it were funny, and it was nice to experience this old way of watching movies. I particularly enjoyed the expertise of the piano player while the movies...continued

This is a great venue. The management is really on top of their game. The movie choices are eclectic and fun. We took our family to see Chaplin's 1942 release of The Gold Rush. Our entire family, ages 7 - 53, were mesmerized by Chaplin's art. ...continued

Saturday, January 15, event with Bruce Dern was very enjoyable. I think the extended Q&A with Bruce before the movies was about 2 hours and very interesting. I saw The King of Marvin Gardens which I had not seen before, but couldn't stay for...continued

Review from Marylyn

Show: I truly enjoyed it. It was very entertaining. It was a "talk-show" style experience wherein the emcee asks Emmet Walsh questions regarding some of his movies, after he shares some entertaining stories/experiences they show some clips. During...continued

It was my first time watching a silent film (A women of Paris) I LOVED IT! The theatre is small with no bad seating in the house. There are couches up front however I sat in the single seats which were not bad at all(each seat comes w/a pillow). ...continued

Review from Fabrizio E.

We attended Jean Cocteau's Beauty and the Beast and had a blast. A great print of a black and white gem from 1946. Josette Day & Jean Marais light up the screen. Cinefamily is a must do in your to do list.

It was okay for me, but the show bored my teenager son. Also before going inside the cinema, there was a couple who were kissing hard in front of the theatre, right at the entrance and that "scared" my son. It became a scary place for him and so...continued

The movie "SCORE" was amazing. Great for any person that is looking for a classy 70 rate x movie. When porno had class. I must admit as someone who doesn't like porn, I loved it. I didn't consider it porn. I've seen crazier rated R movies than...continued
