The Vancouver Civic Theatres Silent Movie Mondays present Charlie Chaplin Shorts

Escape to the 1920s silent movie era at the Orpheum theatre! Vancouver Civic Theatres is thrilled to present Silent Movie Mondays, an immersive experience that screens popular silent films accompanied by dramatic music played live on the historic Wurlitzer organ – the last theatre organ in Canada still performing in its original home.

In the short films he made during his early career Charlie Chaplin perfected what would become the trademark themes and techniques of his career while creating films that many critics have to come to regard as his best work.

• The Fireman 1916
• The Floorwalker 1916
• The Adventurer 1917

Following the show, Keith Blackmore of the Vancouver Film School will host a lively discussion about the movie and the role of silent films in the evolution of film history.

Join us in the West Coast Lounge for a pre-show performance by the Gatsby Strutters Jazz Band.

All at the historic Orpheum!
