Metropolis

When: Sat., May 21 2016

The definitive 2002 version of German filmmaker Fritz Lang’s 1927 silent sci-fi classic originally screened in 35mm film with subtitles. Metropolis focuses on the class divide between the rich inhabitants of an aboveground city and the underground laborers that power its massive infrastructure. A forward-thinking robot decides to start a revolt, and conflict ensues. The 2002 restoration of the film screens tonight at 9:35 and tomorrow at 3:45 at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. Tickets are $10/$ for members. (Shively)
