In 2007, the film landscape of Los Angeles changed drastically with the opening of Cinefamily at the Silent Movie Theatre, brainchild of LA native Hadrian Belove (founder of CineFile Video) and the Harkham family. Belove and his dedicated staff and volunteers have offered up some of the most diverse, wacky and thought-provoking programming in the city. Cinefamily means something different to everyone who's stood in line under the marquee, raced to claim a couch under the watchful eyes of silent movie legends or cracked a beer on the back patio under the stars post-film. For some, it's a place for parties and pop-culture tributes. For others, an arthouse salon; a venue for contemporary indie films; or a host for major international directors. The point is, it can be whatever you want it to be—the mood changes nightly, but the quality and sense of community stay the same. You'll find everything here, from kitschy B movies to punch-proud masterpieces—with fun concessions such as giant cupcakes and coffee—plus lots of special guests and parties out back.
