Charlie Chaplin Retrospective, Babylon, Berlin-Mitte

From tonight until August 7, the Babylon in Berlin-Mitte is hosting a Charlie Chaplin retrospective, showing all of his films in the original version with German subtitles. For silent films, live music will be provided by an orchestra or an organ player.

The Chaplin retrospective kicks off tonight at 7.30pm with Gold Rush. Charlie Chaplin's wonderful daughter Geraldine will be in attendance. Later, at 10pm, there's a - free! - open-air screening of The Great Dictator in front of the Brandenburg Gate.

Tomorrow, Saturday, there's a conversation between film-historian David Robinson and Geraldine Chaplin about the work and influence of her father at 2pm, also at the Babylon.
