Silent Film Festival - Comedy double bill, The Gold Rush and A Woman

an image is not available
Following the success of last year, GLAS Performing Arts Academy return with two nights of movies from an era when the liquor was cold and the piano hot! Join us as we take you back in time to the 1920s where CGI was not invented, actors performed their own stunts and the only sound came from the whirr of the reel and the tinkling of the ivories. Over each night we will show a feature length movie from the silent era. Saturday night we will be treating you to a double bill: Charlie Chaplin's The Gold Rush, followed by Charlie Chaplin's A Woman. The Gold Rush.......In this classic silent comedy accompanied by the unique sound track composed by Chaplin. 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 A Woman.......After Charlie is invited to dinner by two women, he must dress up as a woman when their husbands come home. A Woman will be accompanied live on piano by GLAS Performing Arts Academy's very own Stuart Angus who cleverly compiled music from the silent film era to go along side the film. We finish the evening with 1920' to 40's music for couples to take to the dance floor for the rest of the night. Doors open 7pm, show starts 7.30pm, dancing until 11pm
