A Season of Silent Film: Charlie Chaplin Double Feature

Saturday 8 June, Doors 8.30pm, Screening 9pm

As part of our Series of Silent Film, we will be playing two Charlie Chaplin films in the magnificent surroundings of Gloucester Cathedral, accompanied by enchanting live organ music from the the Cathedral’s Assistant Director of Music Jonathan Hope.

One AM (1917)  
Drunk as a skunk, Charlie arrives home by taxi after a wild night out, only to realise that he has lost his key. Now, as an open window becomes the entrance, practically every single item or piece of furniture--including a possessed Murphy bed--becomes a formidable and insurmountable obstacle standing in his way, and working against him. Can't a man find peace at 1 o'clock in the morning?
Run time: 17 min

Pay Day (1922)
Charlie is an expert bricklayer. He has lots of fun and work and enjoys himself greatly while at the saloon. As he leaves work his wife takes the pay he has hidden in his hat. But he steals her purse so he can go out for the evening. He has a terrible time getting home on a very rainy night. When he does so he finds his wife waiting for him with a rolling pin.
Run time: 22 min
