Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum

The Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum is a combination of research center and living history museum. 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 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.
