SILENT MOVIE THEATRE HISTORY: As its name implies, the Silent Movie Theatre used to be devoted exclusively to silent movies; in fact, it claimed to be the last theatre of its kind in the United States, andits programming was suggestive of a museum retrospective, with the owner/manager offering notes and trivia regarding the screenings. Under the current management, which calls itself the CineFamily, the programming leans more toward unusual and off-beat films.
