Summer shows of Charlie Chaplin’s The Gold Rush

The Gold Rush (1925) — 95 minutes

Gold Rush Plain

The Andrew Alden Ensemble will be premiering a new live score to this Chaplin classic in May 2015, featuring the new ensemble line-up: Ben Kronk (violin), Nathaniel Ortega (cello) Philip Lee (cello) and Andrew Alden (drums and keyboard).

In this classic silent comedy, the Little Tramp (Charles Chaplin) heads north to join in the Klondike gold rush. Trapped in a small cabin by a blizzard, the Tramp is forced to share close quarters with a successful prospector (Mack Swain) and a fugitive (Tom Murray). Eventually able to leave the cabin, he falls for a lovely barmaid (Georgia Hale), trying valiantly to win her affections. When the prospector needs help locating his claim, it appears the Tramp’s fortunes may change.
