Each screening features both films:
THE ADVENTURER (1917) starring Charlie Chaplin — Chaplin plays an escaped convict who comes to the rescue of a pretty socialite (Edna Purviance), who takes him in after saving him from a near-drowning. At a fancy party at her family home, Charlie’s cover is blown by a guest who tells her father (a judge!) and calls the police. The cops arrive and give Charlie a hilarious and wild slapstick chase.
THE IMMIGRANT (1917) starring Charlie Chaplin — Chaplin “comes across” to the USA in this classic, poignant tale of an immigrant surving poverty and finding love.
