Charlie Chaplin is considered to be one of the masters of the silent movie era and of cinema more widely. Before sound came to the big screen, his pictures captivated audiences. However, the creators of a new exhibition at the Philharmonie de Paris feel that this does the man a disservice. They suggest that there is actually a lot of sound in his movies and he was a living orchestra. We could hear what wasn’t there because of his power as a performer.
“The Sound of Charlie Chaplin” celebrates this idea by taking a closer look at the movies, scores and other items from his works. There is a strong focus on The Tramp and the way this plays out to the audience. One of the other interesting details here is the focus on a family-friendly experience with lots of interactive elements for kids. Take part in this interesting show until the 26th of January 2020.
