UNSILENT MOVIES PEFORM LIVE MUSIC TO THREE CHAPLIN SHORTS / FRI 24 FEB
Posted: Sun 1 Jan
On Friday 24 February, popular percussion and keyboard combo Unsilent Movies will perform live scores to three of Charlie Chaplin’s Mutual shorts - Easy Street, One A.M. and The Rink.
Unsilent Movies is the work of professional session musician Ric Elsworth (London Contemporary Orchestra) who will play drums and will be joined by James Young on keys. They tour cinemas across the country providing live music to silent film classics.
Between 1916-17, Chaplin wrote, produced and starred in twelve films for the Mutual Film Corporation. The three films we’re screening feature Chaplin playing a beleaguered police officer patrolling a tough neighbourhood (East Street), a wealthy drunk trying to get back home (One A.M.), and a waiter causing mischief on a roller-skate rink (The Rink).
