Pardee Carriage House Salon:
Sunday, June 17, 2018
Michael Bonham, from the Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum will be our guest speaker. The Story of Niles is the story of what might have been, of how the Bay Area could have become the film capital of the world. But before Niles, the case could be made that the Bay Area was the birthplace of the motion picture.
Michael will talk about the museum and how it is more than a repository of photographs, posters, books and artifacts, how it is a resource for all facets of silent filmmaking, from their planning and production to their presentation. He'll tell us about how Charlie Chaplin and Bronco Billy Anderson saw themselves and their contemporaries on the screen in the early years. The museum keeps the spirit of silent films alive. Michael will share the history made early on, creating the studio that would be home for the pioneers of film making.
Price: $25 per personfor the talk followed by a champagne reception in the Pardee Home's Dining Room.
