This month CINÉ-REAL, a non-for-profit film club with the aim of bringing filmmakers and cineastes together, are screening a 16mm print of The Kid at The Russet, Thursday 28th April.

In 1921 Charlie Chaplin struck out on his own as a filmmaker. He wrote, produced, directed, and starred in a movie that contained the seeds of his comedy-inspired humanitarian vision for the kind of stories he wanted to tell. He also wrote and performed the music for “The Kid.” By this time Chaplin had thoroughly developed his iconic alter ego character, the Tramp. His mastery of mime, broad comedy, slapstick, and vaudeville shtick informed the unique physicality he put into the character.

To attend the monthly screening simply become a member for that month (£5 per person). Book online here.
