One of the great things about living in L.A. is the profusion of movie choices available. You can see everything from Beowulf in 3-D at the Bridge's IMAX theater to Into the Wild in one of the Landmark's Living Rooms to a revival screening of Bananas at the New Beverly. One of the best choices for more eclectic fare is the Silent Movie Theater. Every month they program several series, any of which is worth your time and money.

In December we get the Perverse Puppetry of Jan Svankmajer and Sects, Drugs & Mind Control: Cults! on Fridays; The New Naturalists and Holyfucking Kidshit! on Saturdays; and Amnesiac's Delights: Unforgettable Noirs, Contemporary Korean Cinema and Toho Festival: Deploy All Monsters on Sundays. Actual silent classics are screened on Wednesdays and Peep The Beat--a music series with guests--lands on Thursdays.

You can download a full program and calendar here or just check out the schedule after the jump!
