Runtime:120 min.


Do not miss this once-in-a-lifetime event as we begin our year-long 100th birthday celebration of the historic State Theatre. Three-time Golden Globe nominee Geraldine Chaplin (“Doctor Zhivago,” “Nashville”) will kick off our Centennial Year by rechristening the State’s cornerstone, as well as introducing her father’s classic “The Tramp” (which is celebrating its own 100th anniversary), and discussing her father’s impact on the founding of American cinema. Other Chaplin clips will be shown, including the first film featuring his Little Tramp character. To celebrate the birthday of one the country’s best movie theaters, we’re recreating the experience of going to the movies in downtown Traverse City 100 years ago, complete with an organist, vaudeville acts, ushers in period dress, and other surprises. And most novel of all, we’ll actually be projecting 35mm film onto the screen! You’ll be transported back to a time when the only things glowing in theaters were people’s eyes, wide open in wonder. In Person: Geraldine Chaplin and Michael Moore.
