Tomorrow, locals of the San Francisco Bay Area will be treated to a very special event at the Castro Theatre. In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Little Tramp’s first appearance onscreen, the San Francisco Silent Film Festival is putting together a program honoring Chaplin’s iconic character, featuring two landmark Chaplin films as well as several shorts from his time at the Mack Sennett studios.
I will be in attendance to keep you up to date on what is happening throughout the day, through live tweets and posts on the official Facebook page and the Backlot Commissary. As with all festivals, I will make a post at the end of the day talking about the event and what it was like. Stay tuned!
If you are in the San Francisco Bay Area, it would be wonderful to see you there. For more information on the program, check out the Little Tramp at 100 site, as well as Mick LaSalle’s wonderful article for the San Francisco Chronicle last week.
For those of you who are not able to make it, I look forward to talking with you on social media or through the comments section of this post. For those who are coming, I will see you there!
