Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum

Submitted By Rena Dein

The Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum, housed in the Edison Theater, is more than a repository of photographs, posters, books and artifacts; it is a resource for all facets of silent film-making, from their planning and production to their presentation.

The Museum offers a way to rediscover America's movie pioneers, and to 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.

Public tours of the museum occur from 12 - 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Saturday Night at the Movies - silent films with live piano accompaniment.

Doors open at 7 p.m., showtime at 7:30 p.m.

Check the online schedule for matinees and special shows.
