The Broncho Billy Silent Film Fest Returns!

Ten Days From Today! The Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum brings its annual Broncho Billy and Friends Silent Film Festival back to real world 3 dimensional space at its brick and mortar home in in Niles, California. Highlights include films of Broncho Billy and Alkali Ike and other silent westerns, a tribute to the late Baby Peggy, a screening of Buster Keaton’s Seven Chances, a presentation by film historian Sam Gill about the early silent cinema scene in Jacksonville, Florida, and a walking tour of Niles itself (which is well worth the trip for silent movie lovers — I’ve taken it!) You’ve still got time to book your travel and accommodations. Niles is just a short way from San Francisco. Make the pilgrimage! All the deets are here.
