Film Screening: Charlie Chaplin’s “The Circus”

October 14, 2023 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

Doors open at 6:30pm

Don’t miss this opportunity to see one of Charlie Chaplin’s rarely screened films!

“The Circus” finds Chaplin’s iconic Tramp character stumbling into a traveling circus and inadvertently becoming the star of the show. He out-clowns the clowns, out-braves a lion, and even out-death-defies the tightrope walker when unexpected visitors join him on the high-wire. 

Roger Ebert called The Circus “a delightful movie” and “one of [Chaplin’s] funniest”.

This is the inaugural event in a new film screening series programmed by Cinema Lanterna and co-presented by Madison Circus Space. All proceeds will go to the Madison Circus Space.

Event to include an introduction to the film by the programmer, the entire film “The Circus” (1928), followed by a conversation about the use of performing arts in the film and influences of vaudeville on early cinema.

Whether you are a film lover or interested in the performing arts, you’ll be in for a unique experience.
