SYNOPSIS

In his last film as the Little Tramp, Charlie Chaplin cannot keep pace with the assembly line - barrelling his way through his 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.

G | The content is very mild in impact

Please note this screening is the film with the original soundtrack. The Live Music & Film screening of Modern Times is on 20 June at 11.00am.
