Mount Baker Theatre Presents

Charlie Chaplin's The Circus

Silent Film with Live Score by Dennis James

MBT is proud to present Charlie Chaplin’s The Circus with expert live accompaniment by Dennis James

One of Charlie Chaplin’s flat-out funniest features, The Circus is a cinematic big top packed with thrills, romance, and mischievous monkeys. Don’t miss your chance to see this all-time classic on MBT’s big screen with expert live accompaniment by the great Dennis James.

Wrongfully pursued by the police, Chaplin’s wandering tramp ducks into a big top mid-show. His bumbling attempts to avoid pursuing police officers earn the laughter and applause of the circus-goers. Impressed, the circus ringmaster (Allan Garcia) decides to employ the tramp as an entertainer. In between getting trapped in a lion’s cage and partaking in clumsy high-wire escapades, Chaplin falls for the beautiful show rider (Merna Kennedy), who unfortunately has eyes for a daring tightrope acrobat.

Starting at $10.75*
