Charlie Chaplin’s A Dog’s Life with Live Piano Soundtrack
July 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Celebrate 100 years since the release of Charlie Chaplin’s silent classic A Dog’s Life, one of Chaplin’s funniest and most poignant films.
Come and enjoy this beloved black-and-white masterpiece the way it would have been viewed 100 years ago, in a grand old auditorium with a live piano soundtrack provided by NECOM CEO Russ Bauer.
Poor Charlie lives in a vacant lot. He tries to get a job but when he gets to the head of the employment line the jobs are gone. Back “home” he rescues Scraps, a bitch being attacked by other strays. Together they manage to steal some sausages from a lunch wagon. They enter a dance hall where Edna is a singer and unwilling companion to the clientele. He is thrown out when he can’t pay. Back “home” Scraps digs up a money-filled wallet buried by crooks. They return to the dance hall to find Edna fired. The wallet goes back and forth between Charlie and the crooks. Charlie, Edna and Scraps end up very happily.
