Drawing Room Silents - Charlie Chaplin The kid
Thu 18th Nov
Our Series of Silent film in the Drawing Room returns with Chaplin's first full-length feature. The Kid celebrates 100 years since release and remains a groundbreaking and immensely influential film still delivering laughs and astonishments today.
A tramp discovers a little orphan and brings him up but is left desolate when the orphanage reclaims him. Released in 1921, it was an instant triumph everywhere it was shown and perhaps the greatest triumph of Chaplin’s career.
The film is screened with live accompaniment by Martyn Niele who will be improvising, using themes from Chaplin's original score
