A state-of-the-art facility showing small independent films and classic re-releases. In Short Reigning over tree-lined Fourth Street in the heart of San Rafael, this three-room facility is an impressive marriage of modern and classic sensibilities. Elements of the Center's pedigree are evident in the beautifully restored art deco murals and chandeliers. Modern touches truly separate the Rafael Film Center from other art houses. All three screening rooms feature Dolby/THX surround sound and boast comfortable seats with ample leg room. The 350-seat downstairs theater provides a classic big-screen experience, while the smaller upstairs rooms are more intimate.
