I've been to several special events, attended unique film series and gone to see many indie movies at the AFI Silver Theatre in downtown Silver Spring and it's always a wonderful experience. This is a beautifully restored art deco movie theatre that was saved from becoming a CVS or something equally horrible. Thank you American Film Institute! 😊 The employees are terrific. The theatres are extremely clean. Parking can be a challenge. Although on the weekends the Wayne Ave parking lot is free and it's only a 3 block walk from the metro station. So c'mon. Whatta' waitin' for? Get your tickets, turn off your phone and see a great movie the way movies were meant to be seen. On a massive screen in surround sound in pitch darkness with perfect strangers.
