A variety of old cameras and movie making equipment highlight the Cinema Museum. Step back in time as you tour through, and see some of what went into making and viewing movies in the golden era of film making. A must see for any movie buff.
This place was a bit of a surprise. From the front it looks like it is simply a gift shop with a fondness for Hollywood. It turns out that it is so much more! It was the frontier town's movie theater and it is still there! This 1920's theater has been restored and is in great shape. You can still sit in the seats (and see for yourself how much smaller Americans used to be), watch a film produced by the local tourism board, and check out a lot of really cool artifacts and memorabilia from the early days of the motion picture industry. My kids were amazed by the camera equipment and the tourism film (which was a classic looped dated in the '60s and 70's) was amusing to them. As I stated at the beginning, this was a fun surprise. We didn't realize any of this was there as we approached the Liberty Theater gift shop to take a closer look at the large camera positioned outside of it. A sign on the camera let us know there was more to check out.
If you are movie buff visiting the area, check this place out!
