April 14, 2018
1pm & 7:30pm
The Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra
The SSO goes back to the silver screen at the Roxy Theatre –
Silence is Golden celebrates the iconic Charlie Chaplin. Featuring the scores of composer Ben Model, the SSO brings you two incredible works of the silent film genius Charlie Chaplin. Make a weekend of it and see “THE GREAT DICTATOR” at the Roxy Theatre the night before!
When you buy tickets for "Silence is Golden", add Friday's film "The Great Dictator" for the special price of $8. One showing only at 7:30.
Each screening features both films:
THE ADVENTURER (1917) starring Charlie Chaplin — Chaplin plays an escaped convict who comes to the rescue of a pretty socialite (Edna Purviance), who takes him in after saving him from a near-drowning. At a fancy party at her family home, Charlie’s cover is blown by a guest who tells her father (a judge!) and calls the police. The cops arrive and give Charlie a hilarious and wild slapstick chase.
THE IMMIGRANT (1917) starring Charlie Chaplin — Chaplin “comes across” to the USA in this classic, poignant tale of an immigrant surving poverty and finding love.
The Great Dictator (Friday film, 7:30pm) $8
