Silent Movie Classic 'The Kid' to screen on Saturday, April 22 at Ludlow Auditorium

Charlie Chaplin's 'The Kid' to screen on Saturday, April 22 at Ludlow Auditorium

"The Kid", a landmark silent film comedy/drama about Little Tramp raising an orphan, will be presented with live music at the Ludlow Town Hall Auditorium on Saturday, April 22 at 7 PM. The special program will be presented with live music by silent film accompanist Jeff Rapsis.

The movie, with its daring mix of intense drama and slapstick comedy, proved an instant sensation and marked one of the high points of Chaplin's long career.

'The Kid' follows the story of a tramp (Chaplin) who attempts to raise an orphaned boy on his own. It includes several classic scenes, and is highlighted by a sequence in which Chaplin battles authorities attempting to return the child to an orphanage. Co-starring with Chaplin in 'The Kid' is five-year-old Jackie Coogan, who turned in what many critics rank as the best child performance of the entire silent film era.

"If you can put pieces of the experience back together again, it's surprising how these films snap back to life," said Rapsis, a New Hampshire-based silent film accompanist who creates music for silent film screenings at venues around the country. "By showing the films under the right conditions, you can really get a sense of why people first fell in love with the movies."

'The Kid' will be preceded by 'A Dog's Life' (1918), one of Chaplin's earlier short comedies that helped establish his worldwide popularity.

As with all FOLA-sponsored movies, everyone is invited to enjoy it and it's free; donations are appreciated. Popcorn will be supplied courtesy of Berkshire Bank with water provided by FOLA. For information, call (802) 228-7239 or visit the FOLA web site, www.fola.us.

The Mill River Community welcomes you to visit

We will have an overview program prepared, to provide a sense of what the Mill River Community is all about.

The visit will occur from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm on April 24th, and we will be providing bus transportation for interested individuals.

This initial visit is primarily intended for current students in grades 7-10 and any interested parents or community members.

Please complete this brief SURVEY to let us know if you plan to attend and whether or not you would like to ride a bus over for the visit. Buses will depart from BRHSMS and Mt. Holly Elementary at 9:30 am and be expected to return at around 12:45 pm.  Please complete the survey no later than April 14th.

We do expect to offer another opportunity to visit the school during evening hours sometime in May – if you are unable to participate on April 24th or have elementary-aged children who are interested in seeing the school, we ask that you consider that future TBD date. More information will be coming soon. We can’t wait to meet you!
