Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum

Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum

The Museum offers a way to rediscovery America's movie pioneers, and see their remarkable work in an authentic setting - a theater where Charlie Chaplin and Broncho Billy Anderson saw themselves and their contemporaries on the screen. This museum keeps the spirit of silent films alive. (from website)
