The sole mission of the Retroformat Coalition is to educate and inspire enthusiasm for the art and history of Silent Film. We fulfill this by recreating the original moviegoing experience of in-person screenings with live musical accompaniment, introducing new generations to the joy and power of early cinema.
Our newest series is The Music Box Cinema, with monthly screenings of great silent films plus great live musical acts at the historic Woman’s Club of Hollywood building. We are also continuing the long-running series Retroformat: Rare Silent Gems on 8mm and 16mm Film, now in its ninth year at the Steven Spielberg Screening Room of the American Cinematheque’s (formerly Grauman’s) Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood. Live musical accompaniment is provided for all films by our Musical Director Cliff Retallick, L.A.'s premiere live film accompanist.
We have many exciting, special projects planned. Check back often!
Our programs often include special guests and focus on social issues, diversity and trailblazing female filmmakers. Please help us continue by making a tax deductible contribution now at https://www.gofundme.com/help-pass-on-the-legacy-of-the-silent-film-era.
