South West Silents | The Kid (1921)

The Kid tells the sto­ry of Char­lie Chaplin’s love­able Tramp char­ac­ter as he bat­tles on the streets with his orphaned counter-part Jack­ie Coogan.

Covering many aspects of Chaplin’s very own childhood, The Kid is still one of Chaplin’s most powerful of titles and one of the most important films in the history of cinema. This special screening is produced by South West Silents as part of a new season of events centred around 100 Years of Silent Film: 1921/2021 highlighting key silent film titles celebrating their centenary year.

Introduction by film historian and official Chaplin biographer David Robinson.
