    Before transitioning fully to features, Chaplin learned his film craft and created and perfected his “Tramp” character in an evolving series of short comedies. We chart his progress, starting with his first film, Making a Living (1914, 13 min.), as a pre-Tramp con-artist; The Masquerader (1914, 12.5 min), sees him back-stage, in-and-out of his newly created Tramp make-up; The Immigrant (1917, 24 min), finds the Tramp’s maturing heart and soul. Featuring live piano accompaniment by Bernie Anderson. In The Pilgrim (1923, 40 min), Chaplin plays an escaped prisoner. This last short will be played with a musical score on the soundtrack, with music composed by Chaplin. Curated and hosted by Ken Gordon. Children under the age of six will not be admitted.
