Buy Tickets


The baggy pants. The cane. The mustache. And oh, that bowler hat. The Tramp—the character Charlie Chaplin created who is now so recognizable—made his first appearance 100 years ago. Now catch him in City Lights, praised by filmmakers, actors, and critics as one of the greatest films ever made. Written by, directed by, and starring Charlie Chaplin, this masterpiece of the silent era is presented on the silver screen with the San Francisco Symphony performing the musical score live.
