Film Appreciation Club presents "The Great Dictator"

Film Appreciation Club presents "The Great Dictator"

Friday, April 5, 2019 - 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

The great Charlie Chaplin does it again in his first talkie "The Great Dictator" from 1940. Not many directors dared to satirize Nazi Germany and its leader, Adolf Hitler — let alone during the war — but Chaplin does it and does it brilliantly! Do not miss a chance to see this classic on the big screen. All are welcome. There will be a discussion to follow.
