Charlie Chan Family Chat Archive for the year 2015

Welcome to our list of collected Chat Room film title records from our Charlie Chan Family Monday Evening Chat and Film Viewing for the year 2015. The sole available chat text, accessed through the blue linked date, is from a series of screen captures collected and contributed by Louise Krasiewicz, consisting of portions of the dialogue from that evening which was broken into segments as they were randomly screen captured, and are here spliced together in time order. Please note that all reconstructed texts are incomplete.

Unfortunately, there is no chat text available for the remainder of the Chats listed for this year, however, the title of the featured film for each date along with any other available information is presented is listed below:
