I love this theater. It is a theater from the golden age of film that has been renovated and reconstructed to give you the traditional feel of film watching but it still is incredibly modern in terms of the quality of the projectors. The main theater, which is the renovated one, is huge and inviting. They show a combination of old movies, including little film fests for different genres, directors and themes, as well as new independent releases. The theater is very clean and the staff is WONDERFUL.

What a neat concept. This is a theater that shows mostly classic films. If you never thought you would get to see Gone With The Wind or Psycho on the big screen, you are in luck. The screens are amazing, and the personnel are all real movie lovers (as are most of the theater goers). This is a real treat and not to be missed.

This is a great theater to visit. The area of Downtown Silver Sring makes all the better choice for going and checking this theater out. This theater usually plays classic movies and features oscor movies. My company actually works for this theather and their California location is another great place to visit.

PROS: Classic
CONS: Parking

The AFI Silver Theater shows new releases, but also shows lots of independent films, small documentaries, and holds regular retrospectives of different film genres, directors, and eras. It's a film buff's dream! The lobby often has exhibits featuring props and info from famous and classic films. Prices are standard for DC movies--no bargains here. The AFI also hosts the local film festival each year. Metro accessible (Silver Spring stop on the Red Line).

AFI is absolutely gorgeous to look at from the outside, even more so inside. The theater is unique in that it doesn't play most of the standard movies that are out but rather classics. Several schools in the area have taken field trips just to see this theater!

The programming at AFI is unique and wonderful. They have monthly series focused on a particular topic, lots of great classic movies, and plenty of independent film. The DC area film festivals all show here, and film makers frequently make appearances to discuss their films and answer questions.

The theater itself is a joy to visit. They did a great restoration of the original art deco theater. The theater is also attached to AFI's cultural center, which has interesting exhibits and displays about movie history.
