Cabin Fever: Charlie Chaplin’s The Circus

Sun, Jan 14 / 2 pm
FREE ADMISSION
Directed by Charlie Chaplin
1928, USA, 72 min

The Little Tramp (Charlie Chaplin) is falsely accused of being a pickpocket and escapes from the chasing police by running into the circus. While interfering with the ongoing acts, the crowd thinks he’s part of the show and he becomes known as the funny man. The set-pieces include the opening pickpocket routine, being chased through a hall of mirrors, trapped in the cage of a sleeping lion, and the scene near the end when his trousers can’t stay up and monkeys climb over him as he’s high up on the tightrope. – Dennis Schwarz

Reviews

Pure joy. A must see…. some of the funniest and most delightful stunts and action sequences in the Chaplin canon.
