Charlie Chaplin’s cinematic masterpiece returns to the big screen in a stunning digital restoration to celebrate its 100th Anniversary!

Charlie Chaplin’s first full length film gives his iconic and beloved character, the Little Tramp, a new sidekick in the Kid (Jackie Coogan).

The Little Tramp reluctantly rescues a baby abandoned by his mother (Edna Purviance), but soon comes to love him. After a few years, they form a tight father and son bond and make a living together – the Kid breaks windows, the Tramp nonchalantly turns up to repair them. When the boy’s mother reappears on the scene their relationship is put in jeopardy.

One of the first feature films in cinema history to combine comedy and drama, THE KID remains significant, timeless and much loved.

“The film is a perfect blend of comedy and drama and is arguably Chaplin’s most personal and autobiographical work.” – Chaplin biographer Jeffrey Vance.

“Charles Chaplin’ irascible Tramp is given able support from Jackie Coogan as The Kid in this slapstick masterpiece, balancing the guffaws with moments of disarming poignancy” – Rotten Tomatoes.

“While it will move people to uproarious laughter and keep them in a state of uneasing delight, it also will touch their hearts and win sympathy, not only for the star, but for his leading woman, and little Jackie Coogan.” – Variety.

*Please note: This film is a silent film without dialogue*
