Even though film audio technology had entered Hollywood by the time Charlie Chaplin began writing ‘City Lights’
in the late 1920s, the legendary silent film star and director decided to keep his signature character, the Little Tramp, quiet for his romantic comedy. Now considered one of Chaplin’s masterpieces, the heartwarming and hilarious City Lights gets a not-so-silent screening in the North Bay this weekend, when the Sonoma County Philharmonic provides an original orchestral score to accompany the film for an outdoor screening on Saturday, June 24, at Gundlach Bundschu Winery, 2000 Denmark St., Sonoma. Doors open at 7pm; film screens at sundown. $75. 707.938.5277.
