SYNOPSIS

In his last film as the Little Tramp, Charlie 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.

G | The content is very mild in impact

Please note this is a Live Music & Film screening and is ticketed. The film will screen with its original soundtrack on Wed 23 June at 6.00pm.
