Charlie Chaplin Silent Shorts
These four silent short films will have you laughing out loud.
With live piano accompaniment
We celebrate the comic genius of Charlie Chaplin by playing four silent short films. Audiences first met his iconic ‘Tramp’ character in Henry Lehrman’s Kid Auto Races at Venice (1914). In One A.M. (1916) we follow an inebriated man arriving home late, in Easy Street (1917) our hero becomes a policeman, and in A Dog’s Life (1918) the Tramp saves a stray dog named Scraps.
The screening on Sunday 16 December will feature live piano accompaniment from Costas Fotopoulos, while Cyrus Gabrysch will provide accompaniment for the screening on Saturday 22 December.See more Silent Cinema.
