Chaplin had lethal intent in lampooning Hitler and fascism, using the medium of film to stare evil in the face long before the rest of Hollywood even thought it was possible. The movie is sponsored by Jim Aldrich. Rated G with run time of 2 hours 6 minutes. The Soper Reese Theatre is located at 275 S. Main St., Lakeport, 707-263-0577, soperreesetheatre.com.
