Viva Chaplin | Modern Times

Chaplin’s classic comic indictment of the alienation that a capitalist society produces.

Time & Tickets

One of Chaplin’s greatest films, MODERN TIMES bridges the artist’s natural gift for pantomime and his musicality and rhythm. In this nearly silent film, Chaplin plays a factory worker struggling to stay afloat in a world ruled by industry and automation, bouncing in and out of jail in between run-ins with an orphan gamine, lovingly played by his future wife Paulette Goddard. Cherished for its moving commentary on the Great Depression, as well as its countless slapstick sequences that only Chaplin could create, MODERN TIMES has been revered since its release more than 80 years ago, each year demonstrating to new audiences the power of cinema in so few words.
