More Info IMDb

Chaplin called THE GOLD RUSH “the picture I want to be remembered by.” It may be his most celebrated film, and is the masterpiece with more memorable Chaplin moments than any other. THE GOLD RUSH has Chaplin’s beloved Tramp trekking to the Klondike of 1898 in search of fortune, only to wind up snowbound in a hilariously unbalanced cabin, fending off attacks by bears and ferocious fellow prospectors, and — in one of the cinema’s most famed sequences — staving off starvation by eating his own shoe. The film’s “dance of the dinner rolls” routine is nearly as famous. This screening also marks the 100th anniversary of the first appearance of his character the Little Tramp!

We will be screening the restored original 1925 version of movie from 35mm!

“The greatest and most elaborate comedy ever filmed.” —Variety
