Cost: $24

The 1925 German expressionist science-fiction movie Metropolis features a range of elaborate special effects and set designs, ranging from a huge gothic cathedral to a futuristic cityscape. In an interview,director Fritz Lang reported that "the film was born from my first sight of the skyscrapers in New York in October 1924." Describing his first impressions of the city, Lang said that "the buildings seemed to be a vertical sail, scintillating and very light, a luxurious backdrop, suspended in the dark sky to dazzle, distract and hypnotize." Talking IS allowed in this showing of this all-time favorite (one of the most influential silent films ever made) so you can discuss it with your friends. Proceeds from movie snacks will go toward the Student Scholarship program.
