In honor of our 90th anniversary, The Paramount Theater is presenting films from our nine decades of history. First up is Charlie Chaplin’s 1936 feature, Modern Times.
As a thank you to the community that has been home to the Theater for so long, ticket prices for Modern Times have been set to a very unmodern price – $0.25.
Modern Times, Charlie 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.
