If you are ever in the San Francisco bay area and want to do something fun and different I recommend going to see a movie at the Stanford Theater in downtown Palo Alto. The theater was first opened in 1935 and was purchased in 1987 by the David and Lucille Packard Foundation. They have totally renovated it. It is a beautiful theater complete with a pipe organ that rises in front of the screen and is played between shows.
The theater only plays classic movies. On Sunday we saw To be or Not to Be with Jack Benny and Carole Lombard and Midnight with Claudette Colbert and Don Ameche. What fun. Both are entertaining, funny movies. The Stanford Theater is a wonderful place to see a movie. The building and decorating alone make it worthwhile. It is a great experience.
