Director Fritz Lang (Metropolis, M) uses a variety of special effects in his 1921 silent film Destiny, a colorful fantasy in which Death grants a young woman a chance to change fate and save the life of her fiancé. Set in Persia, Venice and China, the film's three stories blend German Expressionism, German Romanticism and Orientalism. At 6:45 tonight and at 5 p.m. on Saturday, the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque shows a new digital restoration of the movie. Tickets are $9, $7 for Members. (Wohler) Saturday June 25/5:00p.m.
