Activity one: The popular Culture, the silent movie: The 1920s saw a massive surge in the number of people going to the movies. Huge new cinemas were built in both Auckland (The Civic Theatre) and Dunedin (Empire De Luxe). The most popular type of movies showing at local NZ cinemas were ‘silent’ films. Gold Rush and The Lion's Cage are examples of iconic silent films. They feature a famous actor named Charlie Chaplin. They said what the trailer for gold rush and say on your blog what you think about it and do you like silent movies or not and why or why not.
What I think about the movie it is a cool movie I really enjoyed watching it my favorite part of the movie was Charlie Chaplin putting his walking stick into the snow and his hand fell into the snow and my other favorite part was Charlie opened the door and the house nearly fell down and he was holding on to the door. Why: because it was a really funny and cool movie.
