Exclusive: Peek Inside Silent Movie Theater Renovations

The Harkhams are moving forward with plans to renovate the Silent Movie Theater, and construction is underway.  The L.A. Department of Building and Safety (DBS) has issued a permit for renovations associated with the Harkhams' rebrand of Cinefamily into Fairfax Cinema.  

While this permit clears a key hurdle, many procedural steps remain, including four additional permit applications pending with L.A. DBS, as well as a separate process related to a potential alcohol license.

A Cinefamily-watcher and friend of this website was in the area and managed to get up close and personal with the construction work.

A full set of pictures appears below.
