It’s the film that started it all ten years ago. City Lights was the first silent film performed by the ASO and now our annual Silent Film Night has become a family favorite.
Hailed as the quintessential Chaplin film, City Lights was named among the top 100 movies of all time by Time magazine. A comic, rebel and humanist, Chaplin wore several hats in his versatile career. In addition to acting in, scripting, producing and directing his own movies, Chaplin also scored many of his films, including City Lights.
Join us for an evening of true Laugh Out Loud fun!
