Mr. Pest tries several theatre seats before winding up in front in a fight with the conductor. He is thrown out. In the lobby he pushes a fat lady into a fountain and returns to sit down by Edna. Mr. Rowdy, in the gallery, pours beer down on Mr. Pest and Edna. He attacks patrons, a harem dancer, the singers Dot and Dash, and a fire-eater.

Not what I expected from Chaplin - mainly because it's not a "Little Tramp" film. The version on the Internet Archive is pretty watchable even if there are some weird artefacts from time to time. Obviously, there's no sound but if you can overlook that, and fancy an insight into Chaplin's early career - this is basically a film version of a show he did with Fred Karno in England - it's well worth a look. And still pretty funny, too, despite being 98 years old :)
