Spanning several decades, the Charlie Chaplin photography archives provide a very rich view of much of Chaplin’s life on and off his film sets. Starting this month, we will be sharing selections of photographs with you here on our website on a regular basis. Here is our first selection of images. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
Celebrate the life and films of Charlie Chaplin at the BFI Southbank’s special archive Funday, including screenings of Easy Street (1917, 25 min.) and The Floorwalker (1916, 24 min.), plus an extra treat from the BFI Archive…
You can also participate in their Chaplin Funday Workshop at 12:00 PM. Go dressed as Charlie for a chance to enter their costume competition and win some goodies!

The American Cinematheque salutes Charlie Chaplin this Christmas with screenings of THE KID, THE GOLD RUSH (which originally opened at the Egyptian Theatre on 26 June 1925), THE CIRCUS, CITY LIGHTS, MODERN TIMES and A DOG’S LIFE.
Chaplin holds a very special place in the history of the American Cinematheque, as one of Sid Grauman’s guests at the Grand Opening of the Egyptian Theatre in 1922.
