FILM

Charlie Chaplin Comedy Night – July 5

Featuring live musical accompaniment by Hank Troy, piano

Join us for an evening of silent comedy with three of Chaplin’s classic short films. The evening begins with “Shoulder Arms,” Chaplin’s 1918 war comedy about the adventure of Charlie the Doughboy on the battlefield of World War I. In “The Idle Class” (1921), Chaplin’s classic portrayal of “the little tramp” returns and this time heads off to an upper class golf resort. The final short of the night, “Pay Day” (1922), features Chaplin as a construction worker with a greedy wife. Watch a collection of Chaplin clips here. Wednesday, July 5. 7:30 PM. Chautauqua Auditorium. Buy tickets online.

CHAUTAUQUA HISTORY

Chautauqua Lake

Did you know Chautauqua once had its own lake? Fed by Bluebell spring at the south end of the park, and actually a reservoir, it was part of the original Batchelder Ranch property purchased by the City of Boulder in 1898 for the use of the Chautauqua Assembly. The City enlarged the reservoir and built up its banks, upon which Chautauquans strolled and picnicked.

In 1923, to accommodate growing automobile tourism, a ten-car garage was built north of the reservoir.
The same year the water quality of the reservoir was deemed unacceptable. In 1929, the old reservoir was drained, and in 1941 it was filled with dirt and rock. The site, newly named Boggess Circle in honor of Fred A. Boggess, long-time manager-secretary of Chautauqua, provided space for nine new cottages, six built on site and three moved from other Boulder locations.
