San Francisco Earthquake Centennial Special Program - April 14-15, 2006

The Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum presents a special commemorative exhibition of films made in San Francisco before and after the great earthquake of April 18, 1906.  

A Trip Down Market Street, made by the Miles Brothers, was shot less than a week before the earthquake.   The show includes other films by the Miles Brothers, a pioneer film company with offices in both San Francisco and New York.   Footage taken after the earthquake shows the devastation caused by both the quake and the firestorm - a must be seen to be believed.  A prime example of one photograph is worth a thousand words. Several of these films will be projected using the museum's 1915 Powers hand cranked projector.
 
The show also includes Old San Francisco, a 1927 feature film with Dolores Costello, Warner Oland, Charles Emmett Mack and Anna May Wong.  Although fiction, this movie is set in San Francisco and uses the 1906 quake as part of the plot.
