Chaplin in 35mm

Aug 9—Aug 12, 2013

"The only genius to come out of the movie industry" (George Bernard Shaw), Charlie Chaplin gave cinema some of its most poignant, outlandish, and indelible images. A performer of balletic grace, he balanced never-topped comedic set pieces with moments of soulful vulnerability. Behind the camera, he was the ultimate auteur: a writer-director-producer-actor-editor-composer, whose exacting standards could yield that rarest of results: true moviegoing perfection. All films directed by and starring Chaplin.
