It's the centennial of Charlie Chaplin's "Tramp" character and Pickford Film Center is celebrating with a feast of his films.
In "The Great Dictator," Chaplin plays both the Hitler-like Adenoid Hynkel and a Jewish barber who looks just like him. Puns, sight gags and slapstick abound as Chaplin skewers fascism, balancing his attack with poignant scenes of a ghetto in the clutches of storm-trooper terror.
The movie screens at 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 9, at the Pickford, 1318 Bay St. Admission is $7.25 members, $8.50 nonmembers, and $5 for kids 12 and younger. Details: pickfordfilmcenter.og.
