Swale Film Society presents this month’s movie, sci-fi epic, Fritz Lang’s METROPOLIS (1927) @SwaleFilmSoc

March 31 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Metropolis

Inspired by British Science Week (March 10th – 19th), the Swale Film Society is pleased to present this month’s movie, sci-fi epic, Fritz Lang’s METROPOLIS (1927).

With its dizzying depiction of a futuristic cityscape and alluring female robot, Metropolis is among the most famous of all German films and the mother of sci-fi cinema.

A perfect example of German Expressionist Cinema, you can clearly see how Metropolis influenced films such as Blade Runner, Tim Burton’s Batman and even Star Wars.

Shortly after Metropolis was released in 1927, an entire quarter of Lang’s original version was cut by Paramount for the US release, and by Ufa in Germany, an act of butchery very much against the director’s wishes. The excised footage was believed lost, irretrievably so – that is, until one of the most remarkable finds in all of cinema history, when several dusty reels were discovered in a small museum in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2008.

Join us to see this film reconstructed and restored to its full glory! It is complete with the 25 minutes of “lost footage” and a new 2010 symphony orchestra studio recording of the original Gottfried Huppertz score.

This event takes place on Friday 31st March at the Avenue Theatre in Sittingbourne.

Doors open at 7pm. Film starts at 7:30pm. Film duration: 2h 30mins.

PLEASE NOTE THIS FILM IS CERTIFIED PG.
