VCT Presents Silent Movie Mondays: The Gold Rush

Escape to the 1920s silent movie era at the historic Orpheum theatre! Vancouver Civic Theatres is thrilled to present Silent Movie Mondays, an immersive experience that screens popular silent films accompanied by dramatic music played live on the historic Wurlitzer organ – the last theatre organ in Canada still performing in its original home.

Join us in the West Coast Lounge for a pre-show performance by the Gatsby Strutters Jazz Band. Following the show, Keith Blackmore of the Vancouver Film School will host a lively discussion about the movie and the role of silent films in the evolution of film history.

The Gold Rush (1925)

Charlie Chaplin's comedic masterwork - which charts a prospector's search for fortune in the Klondike and his discovery of romance (with the beautiful Georgia Hale) was an immediate success on its release and continues to be one of Chaplin's most celebrated works. The Gold Rush is an indelible work of heartwarming hilarity, featuring such timeless gags as the dance of the dinner rolls and the meal of boiled shoe leather.

"What a joyful cinematic experience! A treat for cinephiles and novices alike."
"A fabulous and entertaining experience that doesn’t break the bank."
"I look forward to Silent Movie Mondays more than any other event in Vancouver, by far!"
