About the Film
Join us at the Orpheum for an iconic silent film double feature of Charlie Chaplin’s The Immigrant and The Kid featuring live musical accompaniment! The afternoon kicks off with The Immigrant, one of Chaplin's most acclaimed short films. This charming story of two immigrants who find love in America is still as delightful today as it was 105 years ago.
Our feature presentation is Chaplin’s first feature-length film: The Kid! This sublime comedy-drama follows “the little tramp” (Chaplin), who gets more than he bargained for when he finds an abandoned child in an alley. After several attempts to get rid of the orphan child, it seems like he is stuck with him for good. The film follows their hilarious misadventures, resulting in plenty of laughs... and maybe even a tear or two!
In addition to starring in the film, Chaplin wrote, produced, directed, and edited the movie which also kick-started the career of child actor Jackie Coogan. Don't miss your chance to see what is widely considered to be one of the best films from the silent era!
