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 saw The Tin Drum when it came out in 1979 and it was great to be able to see the remastered, "director's cut" with restored footage never shown then. This is a great theater and I look forward to future screenings there. Thanks for introducing...continued

Cartoon Night. A good selection of Jay Ward and Tex Avery shorts. Missed the mark by omitting Peabody & Sherman. Unfortunately, the pre- and intermission DJ music was so loud, I was waiting for Abe Simpson to yell, "Turn it up!" Conversation...continued

Great movie. Lost two stars for the most uncomfortable seats since Dante took up interior design.

A little known (in USA) cinematic gem! To say it's a feckin amazing 'Japanese no time no budget 4 hour comic action dramatic controversial masterpiece' is an understatement. Best I can say is after the 4 hour film finished I wished it hadn't. Left...continued

I had been looking forward to seeing the movie for a long time. Thanks to Cinefamily for screening it and to Goldstar for alerting me to it.

This movie was so mesmerizing, I want to see it again.The film maker spoke afterwards and gave some very interesting insight into the characters of the movie, the prologue and the making of the movie.
On the flip side, they made people wait...continued

Everything we've seen here, we've really enjoyed. Just come early, you have to stand in line to get a good couch seat! Members get in first, others second. Also, don't miss watching ALL of the pre-show clips - they're great! Often one of the...continued

A nearly sold-out house of surprisingly 20-something moviegoers loved watching the genius of Harold Lloyd in two of his silents. An added treat was that Lloyd's granddaughter spoke and birthday cake and puch were served in the outdoor patio for...continued

Cinefamily, aka Silent Movie Theatre, manages to bring unique and obscure films and articulate directors to its screenings. The Q & A with Robert Flaxman, director of 1976's "labor of Love" was especially illuminating.

Cinefamily attracts many...continued

The Silent Movie Theatre was packed for the two-night showing of "La Dolce Vita." The print was gorgeous and to see Rome and its beautiful people and eccentric characters circa 1960 was great.

I attended "Fright Nite" on Friday the thirteenth. Its a kinda cult nite which in this case got off to a slow and somewhat chaotic start. The main event was a screening of Fri the 13th Part VIII; an old movie that aged poorly and was even sillier...continued

Cool theater with intimate atmosphere. It's like watching a movie with friends at someone's house except it's bigger. There are even couches in the front rows. The show was great, really enjoyed it! I wish they included title of all the movies...continued
