One of Charlie Chaplin’s most overtly romantic films, City Lights not only starred and was written by Chaplin, but it was also scored by the enduring silent film actor. Particularly during the film’s storied final scene, the swelling musical accompaniment conveys grand emotions that the down-to-earth characters on screen dare not. Tonight and through Sunday, the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra pays tribute to this classic by performing the score as the film is projected. Tonight’s performance is at 8 p.m.at Uihlein Hall.
