Symphony Space celebrates one of the masters of film with a screening of Charlie Chaplin’s beloved silent comedy masterpiece Modern Times. A satire of the Machine Age, Chaplin plays an assembly-line worker who is driven mad by the insanity of his job. Finding himself out on the streets, he tries to find his way in what can be a cold world. In addition to the laughs, the film also has an important theme, about man’s struggle to survive in the industrialized world during the Great Depression. It features Chaplin’s iconic Little Tramp character in his final silent-film appearance.
