Don’t miss Charlie Chaplin’s iconic comedy Modern Times 1936 with live musical accompaniment on the Wurlitzer Organ by musician David Bailey. In his last film as the Little Tramp, Chaplin cannot keep pace with the assembly line. He barrels his way through the job leading to disastrous results, a trip to the hospital and jail. Made as a response to rapid industrial development, the film is uncharacteristically politicised for Chaplin in its unflattering yet hilarious portrayal of factory working conditions.
