Charlie Chaplin’s captivating slapstick masterpiece The Gold Rush made an icon out of the actor and his Little Tramp character – and he later declared it his personal favorite. A down-on-his-luck prospector searches for fortune in Alaska during the Klondike Gold Rush and discovers romance (with beautiful Georgia Hale). Shot partly on location in the Sierra Nevadas and featuring famous scenes like the Little Tramp eating his own shoe and making a pair of dinner rolls dance, this quintessential Chaplin charmer is an indelible work of heartwarming hilarity. (Charlie Chaplin, 1925, 95 min.)

All films are FREE and screened in digital format. Films presented by UCSB Arts & Lectures, Santa Barbara County Arts Commission, Santa Barbara County Park Foundation, and the Community Services Department of Santa Barbara County.
