Chaplin: 'City Lights' film and orchestra


It is a surprise to many that Charlie Chaplin, the comic actor of extraordinary imagination, celebrated film director and co-founder of United Artists Studio, once won an Academy Award- for music composition! In his film ‘City Lights’, Chaplin develops the art form of the film score to complement the accompanying on-screen action in a way that accelerates the story and increases the comedy with a unique style that has come to be known as Chaplinesque. Enjoy the screening of this silent-era film as originally intended- with a full symphony orchestra comprised of some of Hollywood’s most successful film score musicians.
