CHARLIE CHAPLIN STARS in the silent film blockbuster “The Kid” (1921), to be screened with live music at 2 p.m. Sunday at the historic Leavitt Theatre, 259 Main St. (Route 1) in Ogunquit.

THE PROGRAM, which includes several short silent comedies, will be accompanied by silent film musician Jeff Rapsis.

“THE KID,” hailed as Chaplin’s first full-length masterpiece, follows the story of a tramp who attempts to raise an orphaned boy on his own. “The Kid” took the comedian a year and a half to make and attracted huge crowds when finally released. The role of the orphan, played by 5-year-old Jackie Coogan and directed by Chaplin, is often cited as one of the top child performances ever.

ADMISSION IS $5. For more info, call the box office at 646-3123.
