News Release

Henderson Symphony Orchestra Celebrates 100th Anniversary of Chaplin’s Iconic Character with Screening of Kid Auto Races at Venice
Live orchestral screening of The Circus at the Henderson Pavilion to follow

June 04, 2014



WHAT: Live orchestral screening of Charlie Chaplin’s The Circus

WHEN: Saturday, June 7 at 8:30 p.m.

WHERE: Henderson Pavilion, 200 S. Green Valley Pkwy.


One hundred years ago, Charlie Chaplin put on his tramp costume for the first time and, in honor of its centennial celebration, Kid Auto Races at Venice will be screened with the Henderson Symphony Orchestra performing Timothy Brock’s new score prior to The Circus. Tickets are $10.


Kid Auto Races in Venice is an historically important film because it introduces the Little Tramp character. Only six minutes long, the film captures the iconic antics of the tramp during a children’s car race in Venice, California.


A live orchestral screening of Chaplin’s The Circus follows the special film opener. The 70-minute presentation revisits the 1928 comedic masterpiece, and features the Henderson Symphony Orchestra performing the musical score from the 1969 re-release.
