Modern Times, Charlie Chaplin
Discovery Cinema is back! Join us for a Saturday afternoon matinee series aimed at all ages. This season, we’re re-screening crowd favourites from the past five years at Remai Modern.
Modern Times is Charlie Chaplin’s last outing as the Little Tramp. Chaplin puts the iconic character to work as a giddily inept factory employee who becomes smitten with a gorgeous gamine. With its barrage of unforgettable gags and sly commentary on the class struggle during the Great Depression, Modern Times—though made almost a decade into the talkie era and containing moments of sound (even song!)—is a timeless showcase of Chaplin’s untouchable genius as a director of silent comedy.
Films are $10 or free with membership. Talks, tours and other events are admission by donation or free with membership.
