THE FLOORWALKER – The "Tramp" is a customer who creates chaos in a department store and becomes inadvertently entangled in the nefarious scheme of the store manager, played by Eric Campbell, and the store's floorwalker, played by Lloyd Bacon, to embezzle money from the establishment. Chaplin's first Mutual Film Corporation film.

THE RINK – After amusements working in a restaurant, Charlie uses his lunch break to go roller skating. Also starring Edna Purviance, Eric Campbell, Henry Bergman, and Albert Austin.

BEHIND THE SCREEN – The film takes place in a movie studio. A stagehand named David (Chaplin) has a supervisor, Goliath (Eric Campbell). Much of the film is slapstick comedy involving Chaplin manhandling large props, but other plotlines include a strike by the stagehands, and Edna Purviance, who is unable to become an actress, dressing as a man and becoming a stagehand.

These wonderful screen gems are enhanced by live piano accompaniment from Cleveland native David Drazin, an accomplished virtuoso with a talent for playing off the cuff. David selects the perfect piece from his impressive mental repertoire to heighten the viewing experience for our audience. In addition to knowing just the right thing to play for any silent film imaginable, David is also an expert in jazz, classical, blues, and boogie-woogie. Having his talent truly makes our Silent September series something to behold.

This program will be held live in-person in the auditorium.
