See the restored, silent sci-fi classic Metropolis, featuring live, electronic musical accompaniment by Richard Nicol of Pittsburgh Modular Synthesizers, Michel Johnsen, and Herman Pearl.
Metropolis tells the story of a highly stylized futuristic city where a beautiful and cultured utopia exists above a bleak underworld populated by mistreated workers. When the privileged youth Freder (Gustav Fröhlich) discovers the grim scene under the city, he becomes intent on helping the workers. He befriends the rebellious teacher Maria (Brigitte Helm), but this puts him at odds with his authoritative father, leading to greater conflict.
Incorporating more than 25 minutes of newly discovered footage, this 2010 restoration of Metropolis is the definitive edition of Fritz Lang’s science fiction masterpiece. The integration of scenes and subplots long considered lost endows Metropolis with even greater tension and emotional resonance, as it dramatizes the conflict between wealthy über-capitalists and rebellious subterranean laborers—orchestrated by a diabolical scientist capable of destroying them.
This will be the second installment of our Robot Hall of Fame Film Series. Our replica of Maria, who inspired another beloved Hollywood robot – C-3PO, will be available for photos in The Rangos!
There will be a 15-minute intermission during the screening.
Tickets cost $10 for Carnegie Museums members / $12 for non-members. Purchase tickets here: http://bit.ly/2DFmi1U
