Then & Now: Silent Film on Location in Ithaca, NY

View the past and the present all at once in this presentation of silent film footage shot in the Ithaca area in the early 1900s. This short video shows clips from silent films made in Ithaca overlaid onto video of those same locations today and includes then and now footage from Romance of the Air (1917) at the old Ithaca airfield (Cass Park today), from Patria (1916) at Greystone Manor (now the Cornell Sigma Chi fraternity), and from If Women Only Knew (1920) along Eddy Street and at the Eddy St. Gate.

Wharton Studio Museum gratefully acknowledges the volunteer video footage and editing work by Cornell students Greg Repucci and Scott Shull Partington.
