American Film Institute Silver Theatre & Cultural Center

Updated 12/31/1969

Fodor's Review

This three-screen, state-of-the-art center for film is a restoration of architect John Eberson's art deco Silver Theatre, built in 1938. The AFI hosts film retrospectives, new releases, on-stage appearances, and tributes to stars that have included Jeanne Moreau and Russell Crowe. Each June, in partnership with the Discovery Channel, the AFI hosts the glitzy SILVERDOCS. This documentary film festival is one of the world's best, supporting independent storytellers and honoring

artistic excellence of the caliber of Spike Lee and Martin Scorcese through the Charles Guggenheim Symposium.
