Aero Theatre presents a Charlie Chaplin double feature of the following films:
THE GOLD RUSH:
Coming off his first major financial failure, A WOMAN OF PARIS, writer-director Charlie Chaplin responded with what many consider his finest feature-length film. The Lone Prospector (Chaplin) travels to the far-off Yukon in search of gold but ends up falling in love with dance-hall girl Georgia Hale. The classic “dance of the dinner rolls” and “boiled shoe leather” scenes show Chaplin’s gift for poignant comedy at its very best.
THE KID:
In his first film masterpiece, Charlie Chaplin’s Tramp, following his paternal instincts, takes a hapless, orphaned baby – “the Kid” – under his wing. Five years pass, and the tyke is now a precocious little boy (Jackie Coogan), helping his foster dad, the Tramp, in his “window-glass replacement” scam. But a confluence of events, including the Kid’s sudden illness, conspire to separate the two.
