‪My wife and I have been going to see silent and early "talkie" films at the Niles Film Museum roughly quarterly since it was restored in 2004. The original Edison Theater opened here in 1913.

It's been pointed out by some reviewers that this museum/theater is a quite modest by the standards of other museums devoted to movie history, e.g. the Hollywood Museum in Hollywood or the Museum of Western Film History in Lone Pine that are admittedly magnificent, and that would be true. Nonetheless, this is another of Fremont’s gems that is dedicated to local film history, but unfortunately it doesn't have the budget of the larger, grander film musuems.

Films are shown weekly on Saturday nights and on some Sunday afternoons with live music that are always well attended by enthusiastic audiences. And there is a small museum containing memorabilila of the film era in Niles when Charlie Chaplin and Bronco Billy Anderson, the first cowboy star, where making films in Niles and the surrounding hills, including at least one that I know of that was filmed in San Francisco on the west end of Golden Gate Park.

If you’re a fan of silent films or enjoy movie history, this a must see. The museum is modest but very interesting and continues to grow funded by donors. One of the most interesting parts of the theater is its original projection room that had been sealed up since the 1923 sale of the Edison Theater with its original projection equipment in place and then rediscovered during the restoration. Films are now shown using the original projectors.

I highly recommend. And don't miss the projection room tour.‬

‪For the record this page is a duplicate to the "Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum" page, the correct and full name, on this website. They are one and the same.

‪This incredible cinematic treasure trove so wonderfully represents a Bygone Era and needs far more exposure and recognition. Words cannot convey my appreciation to both the Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum and its lovely team of archivists who bend over backwards to make everyone feel welcome.

Niles Essanay Studios was where Charlie Chaplin got his cinematic start in America and this museum pays homage to both those in front of and behind the camera. In addition to a stellar array of vintage filming and projection equipment, housed within the expanse of several large rooms in a relatively compact museum, you will see familiar and forgotten faces and the items used by giants of the silent film era. To add to the novelty, there is even a working Silent Screen Theatre in the rear of the building that regularly shows a stream of classic silent films, such as "The Four Horseman of the Apocalypse" and Charlie Chaplin's "The Tramp," which was filmed in Niles. The museum also features guest visitors, including book authors and presenters specialising in the era before Talkies. The Niles Essanay Museum is also involved in philanthropic efforts, including financial support for the last living silent screen star, Diana Serra Cary, who is best remembered as the great Baby Peggy.

Located close to Fremont, in the southeastern San Francisco Bay Area, in the vintage town of Niles, the Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum adds even more to the character of a town that also has a railway museum, antique stores, an English Tea Room and other restored vintage venues. The museum is still growing and the team there are doing a fantastic job of expanding beyond their fledgling beginnings. Their gift shop cannot be missed, with its array of memorabilia and excellent allotment of books. It is very much worth a visit and can be part of a day trip to Niles for anyone living in or visiting the San Francisco Bay Area. A special thanks also goes out to the team there who went to great lengths to ensure the return of my driving license and credit card that I left behind just before my return to Britain!‬

‪We visited the Niles Film Museum. They are open on Saturday and Sunday to see the many different historic items. On Saturday nights they also have silent film showings at 7;30 p.m. The staff is nice.

The museum is in the Niles Canyon area. This is also where there is railroad ride, antique stores, and cafes.‬

‪I have to differ with most of the reviews I've seen so far. Among my standards of comparison are the one-room exhibit the Kern Valley Museum devotes to the history of movie-making in the Kern Valley area (supplemented by excellent volunteer docents) and the much larger Museum of Western Film History in Lone Pine, focused (despite its ambitious name) on the history of movie-making in the Lone Pine area. Both of these museums have attractive displays, with the objects described and explained with informative panels and labels. They both make a stab--if not entirely successful yet--at a comprehensive account of their subjects. By contrast, the Niles-Essanay has a pathetically small, unorganized, and unattractive display area, with few objects and little documentation or explanation. The purportedly knowledgeable volunteer docents could not conceivably make up for the lack of a structured, comprehensive "narrative" in the display area itself. I gather that a tour of the theater and the viewing experience in the theater is enjoyable, and I appreciate what I took to be the museum's effort to create a usable archive of silent film. But the museum's leadership would seem to need some adequate grant funding and expert outside consultants. I went out of my way to travel to the fairly charming town of Fremont to see the museum and was sorely disappointed. I caution you against doing the same--until the time this museum has undergone significant improvement.‬

‪This is another of Fremont’s gems. If you’re a fan of silent films or enjoy movie history, this a must see. The museum is modest but very interesting and continues to grow funded by donors. And every Saturday night and Sunday afternoon (mostly) silent films are shown in the old theater that has been fixed up to look as it did when Charlie Chaplin and Bronco Billy Anderson made films in the Niles area. One of the most interesting parts of the theater is its original projection room that had been sealed up for decades when the theater was sold with its original projection equipment in place.

I highly recommend.‬

‪Funky free museum when Niles was the hub of the silent film industry. Charlie Chaplain got his start here, and Bronco Billy made serveral cowboy films a week in Niles Canyon, don't miss the Canyon Drive. The museum staff love their jobs and have many interesting stories of the silent film era.‬

‪Viewed Charlie Chaplin and Bronco Billy films, all filmed in Niles Canyon back in the 1920's. Tour of historic movie theater with original film projectors located in original projection booth. Great docents who were very knowledgeable and so interesting. ‬

‪Since childhood, we have been watching Charlie Chaplin or Laurel & Hardy, I had never thought one day I will be actually visiting a studio where these films were shot.

There is so much history in this museum. We couldn't see the silent film they were showing as we missed the timings. But I do recommend it.

The small town is very charming!! A good one-day activity and it will enrich you.
