Silent Comedy Shorts and Cartoons

Event: Silent Comedy Shorts and Cartoons
Every year at Zoom we offer the best films for kids from the silent movie era. This year weÕre thrilled to present a special program featuring short films by two of the greatest screen comedians ever, Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton. ChaplinÕs The Immigrant (1917, presented in a stunning new restoration) sees the little tramp traveling by boat to immigrate to the United States, getting into mishaps, and falling in love along the way. The last short film he made before moving into features, The Love Nest (1923) also includes lots of laughs at sea when Keaton sets sail on a small boat to escape a broken heart and eventually finds himself working on a large whaling ship. TonightÕs program also features some delightful early magic trick films by Georges Mˇli¸s (who has a renewed popularity among younger audiences thanks to Martin ScorseseÕs Hugo) and the cartoon antics of Koko the Clown by animation innovator Max Fleischer. (approx. 70 mins., DCP)
