“`The Birth Motion Pictures:  An Illustrated History of Silent Cinema, 1910-1929 is an exhibition of rare art posters on display at the Brea Art Gallery through April 14th.

“`This retrospective exhibition provides a rare look into the world’s largest compilation of silent movie posters (plus memorabilia), and features works from the private collection of Brea, CA entrepreneur Dwight Manley. Showcasing never-before-displayed movie posters; an actual silent Oscar; original posters from Brea’s centennial year (1917);  Academy Awards film posters; and related memorabilia, this show is quite comprehensive. Silent movies will be screened in the Gallery throughout the exhibition.

“`The exhibit kicked off with a free red-carpet, black-tie optional, gallery reception that premiered this one-of-a-kind exhibition, as part of Brea’s Centennial celebration, last Saturday 6p-10p, with cocktails, live music, and featured films.

“`The City of Brea Gallery is located in the Brea Civic & Cultural Center, 1 Civic Center Circle, Plaza Level.  Gallery hours during the exhibition are Wednesday to Sunday, 12p to 5p.  They are not open Monday, Tuesday, and holidays. Admission is $3, and Brea residents are free.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
