Charlie Chaplin's Modern Times was such a hit with family audiences at our last festival that we’re bringing his famous Little Tramp back for a return engagement.
It’s a joy to be able to present a beautiful new print of City Lights—perhaps Chaplin's most beloved film and considered by many to be one of the greatest ever made. His character romances a blind flower girl, who can't judge him by his scruffy appearance, in a tale with the perfect mix of comedy and tenderness. Chaplin's antics build to a heartrending finale that the Los Angeles Times called "one of the most hauntingly beautiful scenes put on film." Seeing City Lights on the big screen is always a treat, and if you've never seen it before, it’s one of those special moviegoing experiences that you’ll remember forever. (87 mins., 35mm)
Recommended for ages 6 and up.
