    The Complete Metropolis with Alloy Orchestra

    Alloy Orchestra returns to perform its original live score to the newly restored version of Fritz Lang's magnum opus, which includes 25 minutes of additional footage. This version of Metropolis, just 4 minutes shorter than the lost original 153 minute cut that premiered in Berlin in 1927, was discovered in 2008 in a library in Buenos Aires. The reconstruction and digitazation of this archival print is one of the most significant restoration projects in cinema history. With the extraordinary Alloy Orchestra, called “the best in the world at accompanying silent films” by Roger Ebert, this is a presentation not to be missed. \\\"A masterpiece of visionary silent cinema...one of the strangest, most fascinating films ever made, a futuristic nightmare that is both sublime in its grandeur and remarkably intimate in its emotions. Just about every science-fiction movie you can think of pays tribute to its influence, but to date none has matched its strangeness or its prophetic power.”—A.O. Scott, The New York Times
