The Nomad Presents: The Kid
The chance to see Chaplin's first ever movie on the big screen
Comedy with a smile, and perhaps a tear. Chaplin's little tramp takes a small boy under his wing, who becomes both adoptive son and sidekick. When the boy's mother comes to reclaim him, high drama and low comedy ensues, in Chaplin's no-holds-barred portrait of slum poverty. You'll also get to feel the gooey satisfaction of giving, as 100% of the profits go to Coram's children's charity. General admission. Get down early to set up your picnic and find the best available spot. Bring warm clothing/blankets suitable for the outdoor screening. You can bring low chairs, but may be asked to sit further back so you don't block other people's view.
"...this delightful film delivers equal parts belly laughs and heartbreak."
