Catch the Classics

vintage video reel

Even if you’re only in town for a night or two, it’s worth penciling in an evening at the Stanford Theatre in Palo Alto, a fantastic piece of history that’s like taking a cinematic trip back through time. Located just fifteen minutes from our San Carlos hotel, the theater specializes in old Hollywood classics, which visitors can enjoy in the authentic Art Deco atmosphere of the historic theater, which is complete with a pipe organ built into the stage that plays before shows and during intermission. The theater has been restored and renovated and is in amazing condition, and there are frequent film festivals, including a Hitchcock film fest as well as a Katherine Hepburn one. It even shows classic foreign films like Kurosawa’s samurai epic, "7 Samurai." So get some popcorn, grab a seat, enjoy this unique theater experience!
