Silent Sundays Series: The Gold Rush (new date!)
November 28 @ 2:30 pm
After Thanksgiving dinner and Black Friday shopping, end your holiday week with a Sunday afternoon at the movies! On November 28th at 2:30pm, we will be screening Charlie Chaplin’s 1925 classic, The Gold Rush, which “charts a prospector’s search for fortune in the Klondike and his discovery of romance” with live accompaniment on our Mighty Wurlitzer theater pipe organ.
In his journey hoping to strike it rich, the Lone Prospector (Chaplin) encounters many obstacles including a grizzly bear, an outlaw, hunger and the powerful force of Mother Nature. “Featuring timeless gags as the dance of the dinner rolls and the meal of boiled shoe leather, The Gold Rush is an indelible work of heartwarming hilarity” (criterion.com).
With a cost of over $900,000, Chaplin spared no expenses. It was the film that Chaplin stated he would most like to be remembered by and remains “one of cinema’s enduring classics, starring, written, and directed by the twentieth century’s first media superstar.” (tcm.com).
Accompanying the film is organist Russ Peck. Mr. Peck currently performs at San Diego Symphony Hall/Jacobs Music Center for their silent film presentations and is house organist at San Diego’s Balboa Theatre. In addition to being an organist, he is principal timpanist for the Tifereth Israel Community Orchestra.
Ticket prices start at $10 ($12 day of show). Silent Sundays will return in 2022 (more details coming soon!)
