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.

Please note this screening is the film with the original soundtrack.  The Live Music & Film screening of Modern Times is on 10 May at 11.00am.
