I've been to Niles a few times and seen some of Chaplin's films (the shorts - like Pawnshop) played at their tiny Niles theater. You go in, grab a seat cushion from a pile and place it on the very hard chairs in the very tiny theater. Plus side - you are seeing the films run on the original projectors and you can go up and see the projectors after the films are done. Another plus, a stunning shop full of Silent movie stuff you can purchase.
How exciting. I've always wanted to go to the Chaplin festival they have every year.
didn't also edna live for a short time in the house to the left?
Yes, she did.
