Chaplin Shorts (1916 & 1917) at the Cerrito, Thursday, November 13, at 7 p.m.

Come celebrate the birth of “The Little Tramp”!

Charles Chaplin created his beloved “Little Tramp” one hundred years ago, and it still has worldwide appeal. Now, the prints have been beautifully restored, and Cerrito Classics is proud to show four of the best Chaplin shorts, one night only.

One of Chaplin’s most celebrated and surreal shorts, including the famous “sick” alarm clock gag. 1916, black & white, silent

Charlie Chaplin skates circles around his antagonists, figuratively, waiting tables in a swanky restaurant, and literally, at the rink next door, in one of his best-loved two-reelers. 1916, black & white, silent

One of Chaplin’s signature works, praised by fellow filmmakers the world over, including Elia Kazan, Francis Ford Coppola, Ousmane Sembene and Satyajit Ray. 1917, black & white, silent

After a daring escape from prison, the Tramp saves Edna Purviance and her mother from drowning, and is taken into their home. But Edna’s jealous suitor Eric Campbell does his darnedest to have him removed. 1917, black & white, silent

Chaplin shorts play only once on Thursday, November 13 at 7:00. All seats are $8.00. Moviegoers are advised to get advance tickets at the box office or online, as shows may sell out. Arriving early is a good idea, in order to choose your seat and also order delicious food and wine or beer.
