On April 16th, Charlie Chaplin’s birthday, join us for a special screening and live presentation celebrating one of his most beloved films.
In 1921 Charlie Chaplin's THE KID took the world by storm. The story of a penniless tramp who adopts an abandoned infant struck a powerful chord in the aftermath of a devastating war and equally devastating pandemic which left millions dead and thousands of children orphaned. In THE KID at 100, renowned mime and comedy choreographer Dan Kamin reveals what keeps this film fresh, funny and incredibly moving to this day. The program begins with the screening of a beautifully restored print of the film, followed by Dan's illustrated talk and a lively audience discussion.
