    I dig this theater. Great snack options. I went to a viewing of Under the Cherry Moon which was directed by Prince. The theater made the experience awesome. Love that movie though.

    AFI serves booze! If you lack any integrity you can now get wasted and be even more annoying as you run your mouth during a movie. Stay classy Silver Spring.

    A great place to catch a classic film. The original Silver Theatre is an art deco masterpiece designed and constructed by John Eberson in 1938 and renovated in 2003. Student tickets are $9.

    Thinking Sundance, not sequels? AFI Silver's your best bet. A real learning experience. And DC Caribbean FilmFest has been hosted here for the past few years - during Caribbean Heritage Month in June.

    Like most other theaters, concessions is way overpriced. At $1.75 + $4 a cup of tea and small popcorn is the cheapest "meal deal" and satisfies my need to accompany movie viewing w. noshing.

    Out of consideration for the dozens of people in line, please don't gather just outside the theater door to loudly discuss the ending of the movie.
