Genesis Cinema, when it was still called the Paragon Theatre, welcomed Charlie Chaplin on its stage. Now you can see his story on the big screen, in the same building that saw him make his debut as a performer.

This special screening of THE REAL CHARLIE CHAPLIN is followed by a Q&A with directors Peter Middleton and James Spinney.

From the award-winning creative team behind NOTES ON BLINDNESS and LISTEN TO ME, MARLON comes a contemporary take on cinema’s most iconic figure. In an innovative blend of newly-unearthed audio recordings, dramatic reconstructions and personal archive, the film traces Charlie Chaplin’s meteoric rise from the slums of Victorian London to the heights of Hollywood superstardom, before his scandalous fall from grace.

Refracting his life through a kaleidoscope of previously unheard voices and perspectives, the film sheds new light on the many sides of a groundbreaking, controversial and visionary artist. For decades he was the most famous man in the world but who was THE REAL CHARLIE CHAPLIN?
