Film museum rewarded for its dedication

The Niles Essany Silent Film Museum recently received an unexpected surprise during a showing of their popular "Saturday Night at the Movies" series... $10,000.

Every Saturday night at its Edison Theater, the museum features films from the early history of Hollywood. One recent evening, frequent attendees Lenhard and Deborah Stevens made the unexpected donation to film museum president, Dorothy Bradley.

The couple rewarded the museum for its efforts to highlight Niles' role in the early history of motion pictures. An authentic nickelodeon-era movie theater presents comedies, dramas, cartoons and newsreels accompanied by live piano and plenty of popcorn.

Niles Essany Silent Film Museum is located at 37395 Niles Blvd. in Fremont. For more information call (510) 494-1411.

Saturday Night at the Movies begins at 7:30 p.m. and is $5 for all ages. Refreshments will be available for purchase.
