METROPOLIS: Newly Restored w/ ALLOY ORCHESTRA Live!
Friday, December 3
7:30pm - 10:30pm
Brown Center, MICA
Maryland Film Festival presents Fritz Lang's newly restored METROPOLIS w/ a live score by Alloy Orchestra! Call 410.752.8083 for ticket info.
Festival favorites Alloy Orchestra (featuring Roger Miller of Mission of Burma / Birdsongs of the Mesozoic) return to Baltimore to perform their acclaimed score to Fritz Lang's newly restored COMPLETE METROPOLIS!
Lang's silent sci-fi masterpiece METROPOLIS premiered in 1927 at an epic length of 153 minutes -- but was an initial box-office failure, and instantly trimmed drastically to almost half its intended length. Much of the excised footage was considered lost forever, but a 2008 discovery in Buenos Aires has resulted in a newly restored version -- with 25 minutes of footage unseen for over 80 years!
Don't miss this very special screening!
Regular admission: $15
Students: $5 (day of show only)

**Call 410.752.8083 to order in advance**
