Charlie Chaplin: Gold Rush
As with all forms of art, our understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of the great movies can be deepened and enhanced by learning how to see (and read) them better. The St. John’s College Film Institute is dedicated to cultivating the skills necessary to become better readers of great movies, and provides these public screenings—each in the best screening format available—to celebrate the work of eight of cinema’s essential artists.
“One of the flat-out funniest films made in the silent era or any other.” –Hollywood Reporter
In search of gold in turn-of-the-century Alaska, Charlie takes refuge with a fellow prospector in an isolated, comically imbalanced cabin. Hungry? Try a (big) shoe. This masterpiece features more great Chaplin moments than any other: the cabin tottering over the cliff, the giant chicken and more! (U.S., 1925, 72m, 35mm)
OPENING NIGHT!! 7:30p Saturday, June 13 - Featuring live piano accompaniment by HANK TROY!
