The Birth of Motion Pictures: An Illustrated History of Silent Cinema 1910-1929
February 18 - April 14, 2017
Join us as we present a rare look into one of the biggest compilations of silent movie posters and memorabilia. This retrospective exhibition kicks off the City of Brea's centennial celebrations with works on loan from the private collection of Dwight Manley. Featuring exquisite, never before shown silent movie posters, an actual 'silent Oscar', original posters from Brea's centennial year, 1917, Academy Award winning film posters, and movie memorabilia; this show will be comprehensive and delightful. Silent films will be screened in the Gallery throughout the exhibition.
