Charlie Chaplin, once the world's most famous person, had his screen debut in Mack Sennett's "Making A Living" - a 13-minute short comedy, released on Feb 2, 1914. This was the first of 40 films in which he appeared, in 1914 alone!!
Let's watch this film (image below), and a couple of his 'best works' tonight.
Not full films, but several shorts, maybe a short documentary.
I'll have some Chaplin trivia, web links & suggested reading for those interested in learning more about him.
As of January 26, the crowd signing up is less than a dozen, and realistically that means 8 people, so my condo is more than big enough, and cheaper than a reserved room at a pub.
It's a good sized crowd to just socialize quietly rather than trying to talk in a crowd of 50 people - especially since the movies are silent!!
Bring along something to drink or snack on if you like - this won't be a potluck dinner, but if enough people want to share a pizza, we could order one in.
I will email my contact info - address, directions, phone # - a few days before, and on the day itself. The bus from Somerset-Bridlewood C-Train Station runs within 100m of my building, and while it runs late, I'm sure those who need a ride back to the station (or home) can get one.
*Maybe we'll get to watch Modern Times & The Great Dictator on a double-bill, some other time, at a real theatre.
