SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 10th, 2018 11am: CITY LIGHTS (35mm, Janus)

While everyone was making sound movies by 1931, Charlie Chaplin dared to continue to make silent movies (although he ingeniously used the sound technology to incorporate sound effects and a wonderful music score). CITY LIGHTS, his first movie of the sound era, is, along with THE GOLD RUSH, the best movie he ever made. Here, Charlie Chaplin’s immortal Tramp character falls in love with a poor blind woman who sells flowers on the street corner but can’t afford the eye operation she so desperately needs.

To find the money, the Tramp sets out on a series of mis-adventure. He befriends a drunk millionaire who always promises to help the Tramp during his alcoholic nights but forgets everything during his sober mornings. The Tramp fights in a hilariously mismatched boxing match. Basically the Tramp does everything he can to finance the operation. The ending, which we won’t give away here, is one of the most heart-rending endings ever put to film. So beautiful and perfect in its bittersweetness that countless moviemakers have tried to match it and none have come close to the power and real emotion Chaplin captures in the final shots.

SPECIAL NOTE: We'll be showing CITY LIGHTS along with CASABLANCA and WHEN HARRY MET SALLY (all on 35mm!) in February 2018 as part of our THE GREAT ROMANCES series. For the best value, buy the THE GREAT ROMANCES SERIES PASS ($9.50 per ticket) and get into all 3 movies.

best always,
