    The best place to watch movies in Silver Spring. Plays new old and independent films.

    The food is good. The drink choice is nice. The decor could use an update. But let’s face it, you’re here for the movies, and what a selection (from Lawrence of Arabia and Blade Runner to new art house hits like Isle of Dogs) this place is curated by movie lovers and it shows. Now if only they could spruce the place up just a little bit.

    I love this movie theater. It is old but well maintained. The movie selection, theme festivals and vintage atmosphere make it unique. The sound and projection quality are good. Plenty of options to drink. Having a beer/wine while enjoying a good movie is a priceless treat you shouldn’t miss.

    If you are looking to watch the latest Marvel film at the Silver, you will be disappointed, because the AFI Silver is a prestige theater - they only show what they want to, when they want to. Sometimes that means new films are playing, but even then, they are not generally the type to get a wide release. The Silver is much more special than that. And let me just say how much better it is than your typical AMC or Regal cinema, because they curate what is being shown. You could, in a single day, watch Casablanca followed by Blade Runner and end it with a beautiful foreign film like The Handmaiden, not projected digitally, but from 35 and 70mm film prints! Quite plainly, the Silver is one of the greatest cinemas in the entire country, existing as a East Coast shrine outside of New York, a little Film Mecca in the DMV region. If you can, make the trek out, it's worth it.

    Very cool theater. Loved the set up, the atmosphere and the efficiency. It was easy to walk up, buy tickets and get into the movie right away. There wasn't a ridiculous amount of previous. Overall great experience.
