The silent film masterpiece with live, improvised score by Frame Ensemble
Fritz Lang’s 1927 vision of a futuristic city still blows the mind. Thousands of subterranean workers toil in the belly of a monumental, mechanised city for their privileged, above-ground overlords, until a forbidden love affair leads to revolution.
Spectacular, gripping, unforgettable; Metropolis is the first great movie sci-fi and, with live music created on-the-spot by the UK’s leading improvising silent film ensemble, it’s an experience you won’t forget.
Directed by Fritz Lang, Germany, 1927, 150 minutes (plus interval)
