Charlie Chaplin Double Feature June 23, 2018, 2 p.m.

The Kid is a heartwarming 1921 American silent comedy-drama film written by, produced by, directed by, and starring Charlie Chaplin, and features Jackie Coogan as his foundling son and sidekick. This was Chaplin's first full-length film as a director and was the second-highest-grossing film in 1921. In 2011, The Kid was selected for preservation by the Library of Congress for being "innovative in its combination of comedic and dramatic elements". The Kid is widely considered one of the greatest films of the silent era.

Also on this double Chaplin bill is "The Rink", a slapstick comedy capturing craziness on roller skates.

See these Chaplin celebrated classics with live music on the Beverly Ruth Nelson Memorial Organ by Dean Lemire, "Rock Star Of the Hollywood"
