“If only one of Charles Chaplin’s films could be preserved, City Lights (1931) would come the closest to representing all the different notes of his genius.” – Roger Ebert

Silent film icon Charlie Chaplin was an extraordinarily talented and inventive actor, director and screenwriter. But did you know he also composed music for his films? His quintessential romantic comedy, City Lights, follows the misadventures of the Little Tramp as he tries to help a beautiful blind flower seller. Chaplin’s score enhances the on-screen action, accelerating the poignant story and ratcheting up the slapstick. Enjoy a special screening of this beloved silent-era film as originally intended – with live accompaniment by the Santa Barbara Symphony.
