Charlie Chaplin in “Shoulder Arms” & “A Dog’s Life”

August 13 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

$10
This film was Charlie Chaplin’s final contribution to the WWI effort. Chaplin is a member of the “Awkward Squad” and we first see him being put through his paces in training camp. He has problems with making a proper about-face and with marching, constantly annoying his drill sergeant.
ADDED BONUS: A Dog’s Life Starring Charlie Chaplin
Charlie is jobless and has few prospects for employment. He tries to steal food from a lunch cart and is nearly caught by a police officer, avoiding arrest by doing some fancy rolling back and forth under a fence. Later, Charlie saves a stray dog (Scraps) from other dogs.
Live accompaniment provided by Chicagoland’s premiere organist, Jay Warren, on Arcada’s historic 1926 pipe organ!
