A Charlie Chaplin movie like his early masterpiece "The Kid" (1921) is an ideal choice for an open-air urban screening like the one at 8 tonight at the Clifton Park band shell. That's because Chaplin combined unparalleled high jinks with nonpareil sensitivity. Chaplin's combination of balletic grace and robust iconoclastic farce has never been equaled.

The Clifton Park Valve House is a wreck, slowly decaying as time passes. Surrounded by chain-link fence, its stained-glass windows are shattered, and the sky is clearly visible through missing roof tiles. Developer Charles T. Jeffries wants to restore the rare 1888 octagonal structure and transform it into offices. But his dream seems unlikely to become reality. After years of delay and wrangling, city officials have had enough of Jeffries and his Center Development Corp. He missed the contractual deadline to begin construction, so the city has terminated his 50-year lease on the property in Northeast Baltimore's Clifton Park.
