Event Details

Returning for the first time in-person since 2019, the City of Santa Clarita presents the Newhallywood Silent Film Festival which will celebrate two giants of early Hollywood: Charlie Chaplin and Cecil B. DeMille.

An open house portion of the event will begin at 7:30 pm. At 8:00 pm, the City of Santa Clarita will honor Charlie Chaplin and have a screening of the film Modern Times. Modern Times is a 1936 American silent satirical romantic black comedy film written and directed by Charlie Chaplin in which his iconic Little Tramp character struggles to survive in the modern, industrialized world. The film is a commentary on the desperate employment and financial conditions many people faced during the Great Depression — conditions created, in Chaplin’s view, by the efficiencies of modern industrialization.

**Important note regarding parking: street parking is very limited. The Old Town Newhall Library parking lot, as well as the structure across the street, are located within short walking distance of the Newhall Family Theatre for the Performing Arts.**
