The Little Tramp at 100
On Saturday, January 11, 2014 the beautiful Castro Theatre was the site of our celebration of the 100th Anniversary of Charlie Chaplin’s Little Tramp character. No human being is more responsible for cinema’s ascendance as the dominant form of art and entertainment in the 20th century than Charles Chaplin. Modern screen comedy began the moment Chaplin donned his derby hat, affixed his toothbrush mustache, and stepped into his impossibly large shoes for the first time!
