Metropolis with live score by The New Pollutants

Fritz Lang | Germany | | G

Join us at Fed Square for a free screening of Fritz Lang's Metropolis with a live score by The New Pollutants.

One of the most influential films of the German Expressionist period was Fritz Lang’s dazzling science fiction, Metropolis. Set in the distant future (2026!), this incredible visual feast of special effects and unimaginable realities foretells a world where industry and privilege feed off the misery of the working underclass. Into this mix of tension and strife, a story of love and humanity prevails.

This influential sci-fi classic features the acclaimed live re-score by The New Pollutants.

This very special free performance is co-presented with Fed Square. Arrive early for access to limited deckchair seating. Complimentary ice cream and popcorn will be provided by Fed Square for the first 50 people to arrive.
