Charlie Chaplin Retrospective 

When: Sept. 27-Oct. 7 2010
Price: $9 per screening

Charlie Chaplin was, by many accounts, not a very attractive character, with a propensity for being a control freak, living extravagantly and repeatedly marrying teenage girls. His filmmaking legacy, though, remains astonishing, with a mountain of classics that remain groundbreaking in their storytelling, comic timing, surprising dramatic moments and willingness to tackle controversial issues.

Chaplin's work not only changed the way audiences viewed comedy, he helped change the way movies were made with his co-founding of United Artists. And his films are still damn funny, even heartbreaking. Janus Films' Charlie Chaplin Retrospective running at the Carolina Theatre features all-new, pristine 35mm prints of nine all-time classics, such as The Kid, The Gold Rush, The Great Dictator, City Lights and Modern Times, along with a selection of Chaplin's best shorts and such rarities as his penultimate role, in 1957's A King in New York. —Zack Smith
