h4. The BOOT CAKE by Kathryn Millard
A small desert town on the edge of western India’s famous salt plains is the unlikely home of the world’s largest population of Charlie Chaplin impersonators. The Charlie Circle of Adipur embraces businessmen, shopkeepers, a doctor who prescribes Chaplin movies for medicinal purposes, teachers, engineers, students and a three-year-old pre-schooler. They all share a passion for the silent film star of the early 1900s, with his twirling cane, wobbly walk and agitated eyebrows.
Check out “the bootcake”:http://www.thebootcake.com for the trailer of the film, to see how members of the Charlie Circle celebrate Chaplin’s birthday every year, and feel Charlie’s positive influence on their lives.
Charles Chaplin directs and appears in four films that demonstrate how his comic persona evolved during the sound era. All shown in new or archival 35mm film prints! Each film $8, CMA members $6, seniors 65 & over $5, students $4, or one Panorama voucher.
