Buchwald. It features several of the most celebrated sequences in comic cinema. The score, by Chaplin himself, is performed in a restored version and includes a romantic theme that would be made famous through the hit song “Smile”. Plus short comedies from Laurel & Hardy and Buster Keaton, both with live musical accompaniment, additional entertainment from the brilliant comedian magician John Archer and live pre-show entertainment in the foyer from Circomedia.
