Virtual Classics from Bud: ‘Modern Times’
Available until 11:59 p.m. Jan. 5, 2021
Bud Werner Memorial Library presents classic comedy for COVID-19 times. Ring in the New Year with Charlie Chaplin and his beloved 1936 film, “Modern Times.” Chaplin’s last outing as the Little Tramp puts the iconic character to work as a giddily inept factory employee who becomes smitten with a gorgeous gamine, played by Paulette Goddard. With its barrage of unforgettable gags and sly commentary on class struggle during the Great Depression, “Modern Times” — though made almost a decade into the talkie era and containing moments of sound — is a timeless showcase of Chaplin’s untouchable genius as a director of silent comedy. Watch for free via Kanopy with a library card.
‘The Mail Order Husband’
Available until 11:30 p.m. until Jan. 3, 2021
A western-themed comedy suitable for the whole family based on Steamboat history. This free, 50-minute audio theater performance features exciting audio technology. Headphones or stereo playback equipment recommended. Access video at pikniktheatre.org or on YouTube.
