The Cinefamily consistently puts together quality programming for the Silent Movie Theatre, while having the maximum amount of fun. Case in point: its TV Tuesday program last week was a riot, with the Cinefamily screening "very special" (aka uber-melodramatic) episodes and old commercials for the packed house. One of the treats was a Family Ties episode with Tom Hanks as an uncle with a little drinking problem. We posted a clip for your enjoyment.
