Hi folks, I was just wondering: is there any theatre in LA just for old movies?

Check out the American Cinemtheque at the beautiful Egyptian Theater on Hollywood Blvd. It is home to many interesting film programs and series. The actual building itself is stunning, and the wide variety of films is impressive.

Sometimes the Aero theater in Santa Monica plays old movies.

The New Beverly Cinema still survives, LA's last revival theatre.

Others have mentioned the American Cinematheque at the Egyptian and Aero.

UCLA often shows older films, too. Screenings sometimes happen in other places.

Formerly, on the UCLA campus at Melnitz Hall.

UCLA's screenings are now held at the Hammer Museum in Westwood Village.

There is a cool old movie house on Fairfax near the corner of Beverly Blvd. about three or four blocks south of Canter's Delicatessen. I'm sorry but I forgot the name. Last time I checked they played only silent movies.

The Silent Movie Theatre is currently sporadically open. It's on Fairfax to the NORTH of Canter's, closer to Melrose than Beverly. Special events and concerts are held there as well as screenings of silent films.

Perhaps you are confusing it with the New Beverly Cinema which is on Beverly near La Brea, which is still going despite the death of its owner Sherman Torgan. That theatre shows older films of all types.

If you really want OLD movies go to the "Silent Movie Theatre" on Fairfax avenue. I forgot at what exact streets it was but its about 4 o5 blocks south of Santa Monica Blvd on Fairfax going south.

I just went by yesterday and there was something on the marquee saying resuming showings in October.

The Alex in Glendale shows classic films from time to time. Seeing them in that gorgeous theater is a real treat.
