When: Sun., Oct. 1 2017

The definitive 2002 version of German filmmaker Fritz Lang's 1927 silent sci-fi classic Metropolis originally screened in 35-mm film with subtitles. The film focuses on the class divide between the rich inhabitants of an aboveground city and the underground laborers who power its massive infrastructure. A forward-thinking robot decides to start a revolt, and conflict ensues. The 2010 restoration of the film screens at 1:30 today and at 1:45 p.m. on Tuesday as part of the Cleveland Museum of Art's series featuring silent films from the Jazz Age. Tickets are $10, or $7 for CMA members. (Niesel)
