CIRCUS, THE (1928)

Silent with recorded orchestral score by Charlie Chaplin

Tickets $8 for children 12 and under
Chased off the midway by a policeman, Charlie Chaplin's Tramp stumbles into the Big Top, where his act's an immediate hit and he promptly falls for the circus owner's stepdaughter. But when he learns she loves another, it's time for one more noble sacrifice. Featuring perhaps Chaplin's most quietly poignant climax and some of his most hilarious sequences, from the opening chase to his high-wire tightrope act, complicated by frisky escaped monkeys. DIR/SCR/PROD Charles Chaplin. U.S., 1928, b&w, 71 min. NOT RATED
