Google launches an early celebration of Charlie Chaplin’s 122th birthday with a video doodle on their homepage. The short film pays homage to Chaplin’s classic slap-stick humor and vamps the style of the silent film era with classic Chaplinesque scenarios and the trademark mustache.
LACO will also celebrate the film icon on May 22nd at Royce Hall, for our 22nd Annual Silent Film featuring two of Chaplin’s earliest films, A Dog’s Life (1918) and Shoulder Arms (1918). Buy your tickets today for this popular event!
Continuing a celebration of auspicious birthdays, LACO’s founding music director, Sir Neville Mariner, turns 87 today. Learn more about LACO’s history and join us this weekend as we continue our Orchestral Series with Beethoven’s Emperor.
