Hi, I'd like to know whether the Bolex 16mm SBM runs quiet enough to be able to record the sound in medium sized room locations. Thanks in advance for any information

No.

There are things that you can do to try to work around this issue, but it is very difficult. You can wireless lavaliere mic the talent, use a telephoto on the SBM and place it across the room, throw a blanket over it, and do massive noise removal in post, but even then, the results are still pretty unsatisfactory. And if you are trying to sound sync, that is nearly impossible with the spring motor of the SBM, so that requires you to put an electric motor on the camera, which even adds more noise to the situation. Unfortunately it really doesn't work.
