Exploratorium Cinema Arts is pleased to co-present The Little Tramp at 100: A Charlie Chaplin Centennial Celebration with the San Francisco Silent Film Festival. This “little fellow” as Chaplin called him—with his vagrant clothes and gentlemanly manners—became an icon of world cinema and catapulted Chaplin to fame. The San Francisco Silent Film Festival’s celebration at the Castro Theater features three programs showcasing Chaplin’s indelible contribution to cinema.

Our Mutual Friend: Three Chaplin Shorts
1:00 p.m.

Three comedy shorts from Chaplin’s time at the Mutual Film Corporation start the day off at 1:00 p.m., accompanied on solo piano by Jon Mirsalis.
The Vagabond (1916)
The Cure (1917)
Easy Street (1917)

The Kid
4:00 p.m.

Chaplin’s first feature, The Kid (1921), will be preceded by Kid Auto Races at Venice (1914), both accompanied by the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra conducted by Timothy Brock.

The Gold Rush
7:30 p.m.

Concluding the celebration is The Gold Rush (1925), accompanied by the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra conducted by Timothy Brock.
