San Francisco Silent Film Festival
The largest such event in the U.S., SFSFF has showcased films from the pre-"talkie" era since 1996, aptly presenting them (complete with live musical accompaniment) at the Castro Theatre, a preserved 1922 art deco movie palace. For several days each July, SFSFF shows silent films not just from Hollywood but around the world (along with a day-long event each winter and occasional silent programs at other times throughout the year).
