Image from the film Modern Times
This classic comedy showcases Charlie Chaplin’s last portrayal of the iconic Little Tramp as he bumbles through an unfeeling industrialized world during the Great Depression. One of Chaplin’s most enduring works and hailed by the American Film Institute as one of the greatest films of all time, the film is still relevant and funny almost 80 years after its initial release. In 1989, Modern Times was acknowledged by the Library of Congress for its cultural significance and was added to the National Film Registry. (35mm Presentation)
