MODERN TIMES (1936), Charlie Chaplin, 87min, B&W, silent w/ musical accompaniment
CHARLIE CHAPLIN RETROSPECTIVE -New digital restoration available for the first time on the big screen.
One of the most beloved films of all time, Modern Times marked the last screen appearance of the Little Tramp – the character which had brought Charles Chaplin world fame, and who still remains the most universally recognized fictional image of a human being in the history of art. The film is hilarious, touching and a biting comment on a society that was just beginning to come to terms with its modernity. The Tramp's struggle with his unemployment rings as true today as it did in its time.
From 1914 until 1967, Chaplin wrote, directed, produced, and starred in over 80 films, quickly advancing from basic slapstick to a unique comic style - immaculately constructed, deeply human, and always hilarious. Emerging Cinemas is proud to offer this touring retrospective of a collection of Chaplin's greatest works from 1918 to 1952.
