STG Presents Trader Joe's Silent Movie Mondays - The Circus at The Paramount Theatre on Monday, June 30, 2014.
The fourth film in our Significant Silents series is THE CIRCUS (1928). The film was directed, produced, written and starred Charlie Chaplin. It includes a recorded score composed by Chaplin as well.
The ringmaster of an impoverished circus hires Chaplin's Little Tramp as a clown, but discovers that he can only be funny unintentionally, not on purpose.
2014 marks the Centennial of the first appearance of Charlie Chaplin’s Little Tramp. Come dressed in your best Charlie Chaplin attire to celebrate the Little Tramp's Centennial. Let's see if we can break the record with how many "Chaplins" we can fit in the theatre.
Please Note: This film will be shown on 35mm with recorded music score by Charlie Chaplin.
Opening short Kid Auto Races of Venice (1914), the first appearance of the Little Tramp by Keystone Film Company.
CineClub discussion afterwards in Lobby Bar led by Dr. Jennifer Bean, Director of Cinema and Media Studies, University of Washington.
Running time for feature film is approximately 71 minutes.
Significant Silents of 1928 is a four-part film series focusing on films originally presented in 1928, the year The Paramount Theatre opened its doors.
