Los Angeles Trip Itineraries

Historic Movie Theaters

Destination(s): Los Angeles

Day One lists the movie palaces that are still showing movies. If the place has been multiplexed, I recommend watching a movie in the main auditorium!

Day Two lists smaller historic theatres.

Day Three collects theatres that have been converted into nightclubs, concert halls, or multi-purpose performance spaces.

This place is both the Silent Movie Theater, and Cinefamily. It is run as non-profit community-based cinema run for the benefit of movie lovers. The Head Programmer at this unique place is Hadrian Belove, co-founder of the cult video store Cinephile. They do continue the tradition of playing silent movies on the first Wednesday of the month (and also a floating Sunday afternoon). This cinema offers you the chance to see movies that you will probably not be able to see anywhere else.
