Start: 2:00 pm
Denver FilmCenter/Colfax: Join the Tattered Cover Book Store, UCD’s College of Arts & Media, Colorado Public Radio, and the new Denver FilmCenter/Colfax (in the Lowenstein CulturePlex, next door to the Tattered Cover Colfax Avenue) for an exploration of the world of classic movies, hosted by Colorado Public Radio film critic Howie Movshovitz at the Denver FilmCenter/Colfax. All programs begin at 2:00 pm. Admission is free, but tickets are required from the box office. Tickets are available one hour before screening. Parking is avilable in the parking lot off of Elizabeth or Columbine Streets. This month we’ll see the 1936 Charles Chaplin classic Modern Times. The beginning of the sound period in the movies was “officially” 1929, but Chaplin avoided synchronized sound until this film, seven years later. The story is about the struggle of The Tramp to survive during The Great Depression. He gets a job as a singing waiter, but what can this character do, who has never uttered a sound? The ending is magnificent, but so is the rest of the film. (89 minutes) For information on the Denver FilmCenter go to denverfilm.org.
