“Caught in a Cabaret, ” 1914, Dir. Mabel Normand, 30 mins, Kino Lorber, USA

Charlie is a clumsy waiter in a cheap cabaret, but pretends to be an ambassador to impress a pretty lady he meets in the park.

Format: DCP

MODERN TIMES, 1936, Dir. Charlie Chaplin, 87 mins, Janus Films, USA

Modern Times, Charlie Chaplin’s last outing as the Little Tramp, puts the iconic character to work as a giddily inept factory employee who becomes smitten with a gorgeous gamine (Paulette Goddard). With its barrage of unforgettable gags and sly commentary on class struggle during the Great Depression, Modern Times—though made almost a decade into the talkie era and containing moments of sound (even song!)—is a timeless showcase of Chaplin’s untouchable genius as a director of silent comedy.

FORMAT: 35mm
