Take your kids to a free screening of Charlie Chaplin’s 'Modern Times' at Enzian

During the summer, when the kids are out of school and parents have to come up with ways to entertain the sticky little goblins without taking out another mortgage, the Enzian offers up KidFest, a series of free screenings of family-friendly movies.



Of course, it being the Enzian, you’re not going to get computer-animated Hollywood schlock: The first film shown during this year’s KidFest is Modern Times, Charlie Chaplin’s 1936 silent-talkie hybrid about a factory worker subjected to the indignity of becoming a cog in the grand capitalist machine until he finds freedom in imprisonment. The film is widely regarded as one of Chaplin’s best, and is a fitting send-off for his “Little Tramp” character. And while the cocaine gag may go over the heads of the little ones, here’s some good news: You don’t have to bring a kid with you to see the movie. 

Tuesday, 3 p.m. | Enzian Theater, 1300 S. Orlando Ave., Maitland | 407-629-1088 | enzian.org | free
