The Stanford Theatre

In Palo Alto California there is a wonderful theater called “The Stanford Theatre”. I absolutely love this theater! All that they show are old movies. It was built in 1925 and has been renovated to its original grandeur. Every movie begins with or is followed by someone playing their Wurlitzer Organ. They occasionally show silent films, when they do the organ accompanies the movie, it's so wonderful! My husband and I lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for 5 ½ years and went to the Stanford Theatre all the time. One thing that is so wonderful about it is that they always show a double feature. It is $7.00 to get in, and you get two movies! Their schedule usually changes bi-weekly so you can stop by a couple of times a week and see many different films. I really miss going to the Stanford Theatre and wish that there were more theaters like this around the country. If you live near Palo Alto, please give yourself a treat and visit this theater!
