Hosted by Serge Bromberg.
Charlie Chaplin’s “Little Tramp” character was once the most widely recognized figure in the entire world. Discover the first-ever filmed images of the Tramp as film historian and preservationist Serge Bromberg hosts a unique show full of stories, behind-the-scenes footage, restoration samples and never-before-exhibited documents. Other treats include a new print of A Night in the Show (1915) and the theatrical world premiere of the new restoration of The Bank (1915). Since 2003, as part of the Chaplin Project, Bromberg’s Lobster Films, Cineteca di Bologna and the British Film Institute have been working to restore all of Charlie Chaplin’s early films. To celebrate the conclusion of the project, Bromberg will accompany the films on the piano and discuss the evolution of the beloved Little Tramp.
