Chaplin, Keaton, Lloyd: Comedy Classics of the Silent Era

Charlie Chaplin
Wednesday, July 9, 2014 - 19:30 to Friday, August 22, 2014 - 20:30
Campbell Hall and Santa Barbara Courthouse

Return to a simpler time of bowler hats, title cards and outlandish, light-hearted entertainment when Chaplin, Keaton, Lloyd: Comedy Classics of the Silent Era, a new summer film series, kicks off Wed., July 9 and runs through Fri., Aug. 22.
 
Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Harold Lloyd were the kings of silent film comedy, and they remain among the best-loved artists of early cinema. With their spectacular sight gags, thrilling stunts and masterful physical comedy captured forever on film, these legendary comics continue to tickle and delight audiences of all ages.
 
Featuring nine different movies, the FREE screenings take place consecutive Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. indoors at UCSB Campbell Hall and Fridays at 8:30 p.m. outdoors under the stars at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse Sunken Garden. (Note: Due to Old Spanish Days Fiesta, there will be no Fri., Aug. 1 screening.) Four nights of films at the Courthouse will feature live music accompaniment by renowned pianist Michael Mortilla. (Charlie Chaplin films and Campbell Hall films will feature music recordings.)
 
The series is presented by UCSB Arts & Lectures, Santa Barbara County Arts Commission, Santa Barbara County Park Foundation, and the Community Services Department of Santa Barbara County.

The complete lineup, including dates, times and descriptions of each film, is available here.
