Just a reminder, that St. John’s/St. Luke’s Lutheran Church will be offering another Sunday afternoon of Silent Movie film fun, at 3 p.m. on November 8th. The movie will star Charlie Chaplin in one of his funniest films entitled “The Gold Rush.” Dave Moreno of Sacramento will return to demonstrate his artistry in the providing of the musical accompaniment to the film on the Church’s Robert Morton Theater Organ. Appearing once again with Moreno is Matias Bombal as emcee, providing additional musical entertainment and interesting bits of information about the film. There is no charge to view the film however a free will offering will be accepted for the showing.
The plot for the movie is centered during the middle of the gold rush in Alaska. A “Lonely Prospector” barges into the only cabin in sight during a blizzard and meets up with the occupant, Black Larsen, and later, another lone prospector, Big Jim McKay, stumbles in the door. Eventually, Larsen has an opportunity to leave the cabin. One of the funniest scenes in the film occurs when a starving Charlie cooks up one of his boots and shares the “upper” part with Jim and settles for the nail-ridden sole, himself. Actually, Chaplin had the boot created out of licorice, so it really must have been quite tasty! The scene takes on new comedy when a bear enters the cabin, we won’t spoil the fun by telling what happens next. Plan to attend the Silent Movie event and enjoy an afternoon of comedy and wonderful music provided by Dave Moreno on the organ, and film highlights with Matias Bombal.
Following the movie, all are invited to visit the church basement hall and enjoy a free dish of ice cream, and the opportunity to visit with friends and neighbors. Homemade pie will also be available to enjoy with the ice cream and is priced at $2.50 a serving. Valley Home boasts some of the best pie makers in the area and you may also want to purchase a whole pie to take home.
