I’ve never attended an event or screening at the Silent Movie Theatre other than my own wedding. It was an…interesting experience. It was also the most gorgeous wedding ever. That theatre is really something.
Anyway, I was surprised earlier to read that the theatre is putting on a musical show tonight, but less so when my friend Cory (who also got married there) sent me this LA Times article. It seems that owner Charlie Lustman is selling the theatre to brothers Dan and Sammy Harkham, who intend to bring in a wider variety of entertainment, including more modern films. But the silents aren’t going anywhere, and in fact will be playing more frequently – every Monday night is the projected plan.
