Description

1927 – silent • Directed by Fritz Lang
• Live Accompaniment by Donnie Rankin on the Mighty Wurlitzer •
This behemoth science-fiction epic is considered a triumph of the silent era. The
pioneering production design and cinematography are a marvel, even by today’s
standards. The film’s 2.5-hour running time is worth every second, especially with
Donnie Rankin’s powerful score on the Mighty Wurlitzer. This is how Metropolis
deserves be seen — on the big screen with live accompaniment.
