One of the sad losses in LA venues in 2017 was Cinefamily. Also, it happened in disastrous fashion as its downfall was the beginning of the wave of sexual harassment and abuse claims that has been reverberating through every inch of the entertainment industry since.
It would seem now that it will be reopened under a new name as Fairfax Theater, LLC has been registered by the reported owner of The Silent Movie Theatre.
Just in case you forgot, Cinefamily hosted a number of comedy events including the Benson Movie Interruption, Wayne Federman International Film Festival, Supertight, and many more (as well as several screening of classic and cult comedies from all over the world).
Any other details as to what will happen and when that’ll be have yet to be announced, but we’ll keep you posted.
