Best Offering of Films in the Bay Area

I'm constantly impressed with the neverending lineup of spectacular films at PFA. Specializing in older and more obscure cinema, the PFA screens many masterpieces that can sometimes be hard to find at your standard, crappy video store.
The theater itself is basically a lecture room, and not quite as charming as some theaters you might find in San Francisco, but they generally offer some interesting series. For example, this month they're showing 14 medieval-era films, including The Seventh Seal and Alexander Nevsky. If the middle ages doesn't turn you on, PFA screens a huge variety of other genres, from all over the world, old and new. A while back, I saw "U-Carmen e-Khayelitsha," a South-African version of Bizet's opera "Carmen."
If you love movies, you're bound to find something of interest to you at PFA.
