A Cultural history film series celebrating 100 years of our film culture’s worship of a timeless icon by revisiting a few of Chaplin’s classic silent films made in 1917. Part of the magic of Chaplin’s films comes from their meticulousness and deliberate grace that could only come from a master artist who took his time controlling every creative aspect to effortlessly elicit laughs from even the most hardened cynic. The mere mention of his name conjures up one of the most easily recognizable characters of the 20th century: his cane, bowler hat, baggie trousers, button mustache — and the kind, forgiving face that solidified Charlie Chaplin as the most versatile, lovable comedic performer of his era, and an icon of world cinema whose very silhouette instantly warms hearts and raises smiles. Call for additional details and information.
