Join us at the Palace Theatre on Tuesday, October 25th at 7:30 PM  for a special showing of the Charlie Chaplin silent film, "City Lights".  Charlie Chaplin is one of the most iconic silent film stars of all time. But this will not be the typical showing of  a "Charlie Chaplin" film..  This is the same movie seen by your great-grandparents exactly as they would have seen it: silent and accompanied by talented musicians.  Mr. Chaplin starred in a number of silent films that were beloved all over the world.  Charlie Chaplin's talent is still studied by movie buffs and film students alike.

And because no silent movie is complete without sound, the West Texas A&M University Symphony Orchestra will travel to Canadian to premiere a new musical score written especially for the Charlie Chaplin film, "City Lights".








Charlie Chaplin, considered to be one of the most pivotal stars of the early days of Hollywood, lived an interesting life both in his films and behind the camera. He is most recognized as an icon of the silent film era, often associated with his popular "Little Tramp" character; the man with the toothbrush mustache, bowler hat, bamboo cane, and a funny walk.


Charlie Chaplin was considered one of the greatest filmmakers in the history of American cinema, whose movies were and still are popular throughout the world, and have even gained notoriety as time progresses. His films show, through the Little Tramp's positive outlook on life in a world full of chaos, that the human spirit has and always will remain the same.


Seating for this special show will be general admission. And remember, the Palace only seats 289 persons, so buy your tickets early when they go on sale.


Admission for adults is $15.

Student admission is $5.
