Charlie Chaplin wrote, directed, produced, and starred in over 80 films, quickly advancing from basic slapstick to a unique comic style – immaculately constructed, deeply human, and always hilarious. In cooperation with MK2 and the Chaplin estate, Janus Films is proud to present a touring retrospective of Chaplin’s films from 1918 to 1957.

Charles Chaplin, 1921, 86m
THE KID (1921) Chaplin stepped into feature-length storytelling with this tale of the down-but-never-out Tramp and an adorable ragamuffin (Jackie Coogan). IDLE CLASS (1921) Charlie is the spitting image of a rich woman’s drunk husband, leading to much confusion.
