The Frida Cinema

Orange County's Year-Round Film Festival

What a hidden gem! I had such a lovely time at a recent showing of Godzilla (1954). This theater is a bit timeworn, yet undeniably quaint and charming with an unconventional feel. And interestingly enough, the audience served as the sweet element of surprise. Those in attendance created an atmosphere of delight, comfort, and personal acceptance… and get this.. there was an actual host who presented a brief preface to the film just prior to viewing. Very collegiate, which I loved!  All in all perhaps you could say my experience was analogous to viewing a film with a large extended family; something you certainly won’t find in your traditional run of the mill theater.  This is indeed a special place, highly recommended for those seeking a unique and memorable movie experience.
