Check out the Spooky Silent Films at Cinema Piadina

Things are getting spooky at Hotel San Luis Obispo! We’re happy to announce our October lineup of silent cinema at Cinema Piadina! Every Wednesday evening in October you’ll be able to join us at Piadina on the Courtyard to sip cocktails and savor delicious pizzas while classic films are projected in the background, bringing a unique ambiance to your meal.

A portion of the cocktail sales for the evening will be donated to the film festival and help us financially as we navigate our plans for next year’s film festival and year-round programming. We hope you’ve been enjoying this safe, socially distanced outdoor event. This is not intended to be a full movie watching experience, please read our FAQ for more information.

Due to social-distancing, limited seating is available. We strongly encourage you to make reservations in advance.


  • 10/14 – 7:00PM – LON CHANEY in THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA – 1925 – (silent film)
  • 10/21 – 7:00PM – JOHN BARRYMORE in DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE – 1920 – (silent film)
  • 10/28 – 7:00PM – MAX SCHRECK in NOSFERATU – 1920 – (silent film)

Don’t miss your last chance to submit your film at our regular deadline submission fee! We have two new categories this year — Best Music Video and Best Animation. We can’t wait to receive your submissions! 

We look forward to announcing some more exciting events and screenings soon!

Stay tuned and see you at the movies!
