The Silent Movie Theatre

TV Soap - - Celebrity Insider -

This Fair­fax Av­enue Art Deco cinema was once fa­mous for screen­ing only silent movies. Built in 1942, this was where to see silent le­gends such as Char­lie Chap­lin and Lau­rel & Hardy in ac­tion. Th­ese days, the 158seat cinema has been fully re­stored to its 1940s glory and is a favourite for lm fes­ti­vals, in­de­pen­dent movies and retro events. It’s also been used for pri­vate screen­ings for stars such as Johnny Depp and Bruce Spring­steen.
