The Cinema Museum, London

The Real Charlie Chaplin preview screening with Q&A with the directors

Thu 17 Feb 2022 @ 19:30 · Events

The Real Charlie Chaplin poster Longlisted for the Best Documentary at the BAFTAs, this is the definitive documentary about one of the world’s most recognisable men. From the Lambeth workhouse to Hollywood stardom – one of the greatest rags-to-riches stories ever told.

Groundbreaking, controversial, outspoken and visionary. For decades he was the most famous man in the world – but who was the real Charlie Chaplin? Drawn from a remarkable archive of newly unearthed material, The Real Charlie Chaplin will be a revealing and poignant portrait of Hollywood’s most iconic figure.

We are grateful to the distribution company, Altitude Film Distribution, for allowing us to screen the film prior to its general release as a fundraiser for the museum. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the directors, Peter Middleton and James Spinney.

Doors open at 19.00, for a 19.30 start.

Refreshments will be available in our licensed cafe/bar.


Tickets £8.

Advance tickets may be purchased from Ticketlab, or direct from the Museum by calling 020 7840 2200 in office hours.
