“Very dedicated and thorough festival.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2012

I've been on their mailing list for years. When I did attend, I met Charlie Chaplin's daughter Jane.

What a very complete experience. They are so commited, so enthusiastic and so well prepared. You know you are falling in with some true film enthusiasts and experts.

A high quality group!

(I visited years ago, but can't get the date to change on this site. Sorry. Wanted to be 100% honest.)

“One of a kind place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2012

This is the only place of it's kind that I know of. You can see the silents and recognize where some of them were made -- right on the street where the museum is. And downtown Niles has not changed much since then. Great to do in combination with a ride on the Niles Canyon Railroad and lunch at Bronco Billy's pizza.
