This complete, fully restored 35mm version of the 1925 masterpiece of silent cinema stars Charlie Chaplin as his iconic character The Tramp. The movie tells the story of a lone prospector’s trip into the Alaskan Klondike in search of gold and riches. The film – moving, hilarious, and full of Chaplin’s trademark invention – has long been unavailable in its original form, following the star’s 1942 abbreviated “sound version” and his dictate that the original only be screened with live orchestral accompaniment.
