The Kid (1921)

Denver Silent Film Festival, Denver Colorado

Charlie Chaplin finds and raises an abandoned child (Jackie Coogan) in his tenement apartment. But when social workers take Jackie away, the two end up on the lam. This was a hugely successful silent comedy feature, and set a pattern of including both slapstick and thoughtful emotion that continues in good comedy films to this day. The Broomfield Auditorium (in the same building as the Broomfield Library) is an excellent space for a movie, and we're excited to be performing here!
