City Lights

Friday Mar 29, 2013 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM This is a past program

Deep into production of Charlie Chaplin’s City Lights, Hollywood was overwhelmed by the talkie revolution. After months of anguished contemplation, Chaplin decided to finish the film as it began—in silence, save for a musical score and an occasional sound effect. Cast once again as the Little Tramp, Chaplin makes the acquaintance of a blind flower girl, who through a series of coincidences has gotten the impression that the shabby tramp is a millionaire. (1931, 87 min. Dir. C. Chaplin)
