The monumental transition from silent to sound films began in 1929. Charlie Chaplin avoided synchronized noise until this motion picture, which came out in 1936. Following humanity’s crusade through the Great Depression, Modern Times is a comedy focused on the iconic Little Tramp as he struggles to survive in a modern, industrialized world. He gets a job as a singing waiter, but what can this character do, who has never uttered a sound? Sun 2 p.m.
