One of the very first science fiction feature films ever made depicts a futuristic urban dystopia and follows the attempts of Freder, the wealthy son of the city’s ruler, and Maria, a poor worker, to overcome the vast gulf separating the classes of their city. With groundbreaking special effects and provocative themes, this German-made classic pioneered a whole new way of thinking about the possibilities of film.
The special screening of Metropolis is a longer feature film, which may not be appropriate for children and will not include vaudeville acts or door prizes.
