The California Film Institute has restored the former 1,100-seat Rafael Theatre, now officially called the Christopher B. Smith Rafael Film Center. The Art Moderne style New Rafael Theatre was a June 1938 renovation by architect A.J. Hopper of the fire-damaged 1918 former Orpheus Theatre designed in 1920 by the Reid Brothers. It had 1,50 seats. It now houses three screens, specializing in independent and foreign films.
