About the Event

Before experiencing pianist Gabriela Montero improvise a movie score on the spot to Charlie Chaplin's The Immigrant on our Performances Up Close series on February 11, 6PM, come to the Princeton Garden Theatre to enjoy Chaplin's iconic comedic masterpiece, Modern Times (1936).

Chaplin’s last outing as the Little Tramp puts the iconic character to work as a giddily inept factory employee who becomes smitten with a gorgeous gamine (Paulette Goddard). With its barrage of unforgettable gags and sly commentary on class struggle during the Great Depression, Modern Times—though made almost a decade into the talkie era and containing moments of sound (even song!)—is a timeless showcase of Chaplin’s untouchable genius as a director of silent comedy.

A post-screening discussion about music for silent films will follow between Gabriela Montero and composer Andrew Lovett

Tickets are now available for purchase at the Princeton Garden Theatre
