Live Orchestra to Accompany Catalina Museum’s Silent Filmposted: 3/20/2014
This year’s film, Charles Chaplin’s City Lights, has been ranked as the 11th greatest American film of all time by the American Film Institute. Grammy Award-winning conductor Richard Kaufman will conduct a 39-piece orchestra performing the original score composed by Chaplin himself.
Chaplin worked with musical composer Arthur Johnston on the film’s score, recording the music and synchronizing it with the film. The film of love, mishaps, misfortunes and misunderstandings is a Chaplin film not to be missed.
