You can watch free movies at home, on your television, all day long (depending what cable package you have, which is not really "free" after all). But head to Trinity College's Cinestudio and watch some classic Chaplin (pictured) with other folks; on Wednesday they'll show the classic 1940 black-and-white film The Dictator, Chaplin's take on Hitler, stars Paulette Goddard, Jack Oakie and Reginald Gardiner, after a pre-screening talk, "Taking Back the Moustache: Comedy and Politics" by James Prakash Younger, assistant professor of English at Trinity College.


Free Movie Night: The Great Dictator

Sept. 25, 7:30 p.m., Cinestudio, Trinity College, 300 Summit St,, Hartford, (860) 297-2463, cinestudio.org.
