The AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center is a state-of-the-art moving image exhibition, education and cultural center. Anchored by the restoration of noted architect John Eberson's historic 1938 Silver Theatre, it also features 32,000 square feet of new construction housing two stadium theaters, office and meeting space, and reception and exhibit areas.
The exceptional technical facilities of the AFI Silver include film formats from 16 to 70mm, high-definition digital cinema video projection, broadcast quality video recording and distance learning capabilities via satellite, fiber and the Internet. Whether it's silent film at the proper frame rate with live musical accompaniment, 70mm wide screen spectaculars or digital cinema, the AFI Silver offers state-of-the-art technology in each of its three theaters — with seating for 400, 200 and 75, respectively — as well as in its world-class conference room, all available to rent.
