Metropolis (PG)

Friday 10th November 2017 - Thursday 16th November 2017

Fritz Lang’s silent, sci-fi masterpiece celebrates its 90th Anniversary year in 2017, and is back in cinemas. With its dizzying depiction of a futuristic cityscape and female robot, Metropolis is the mother of all sci-fi cinema (an influence on Blade Runner and countless other films). Directed by Fritz Lang, its jaw-dropping production values, iconic imagery, and modernist grandeur remain as powerful as ever. Defining classic sci-fi themes, it depicts a dystopian future in which anonymous workers conduct their endless drudgery below ground while their rulers enjoy a decadent life of leisure and luxury. When Freder ventures into the depths in search of the beautiful Maria, plans of rebellion are revealed and a Maria-replica robot is programmed by a mad inventor and the master of Metropolis to incite the workers into a self-destructive riot.

We will screen the newly restored 150 minute version at 5pm on Sat 11 Nov and 2.30pm on Wed 15 Nov.

Dir. Fritz Lang, Germany, 1927, 99 mins, silent with subtitles. Cast. Alfred Abel, Gustav Frohlich, Brigitte Helm, Rudolf Klein-Rogge.
