AFI SILVER THEATRE AND CULTURAL CENTER
Silver Spring, Maryland

One of the tricks the Historic Theatre must accomplish is have the old-time feel of a 1.37 front-end when showing classic films. Note that the Art Deco color stripes from the ceiling continue down the panels or “walls”, as they are referred, on either side of the screen. In this setting, front-end takes on a more squarish appearance.
