Film Screening: The Complete Metropolis

"The film was born from my first sight of the skyscrapers in New York in October 1924. I looked into the streets—the glaring lights and the tall buildings—and there I conceived Metropolis." –Director Fritz Lang

Join us for an Art Deco–inspired evening at BSA Space as we screen the classic 1927 film Metropolis, directed by Fritz Lang. Completely restored in 2010, the film incorporates more than 25 minutes of newly discovered footage, making it the definitive edition of Lang’s science-fiction masterpiece.

The film’s dazzling visual design and special effects are more striking than ever backed by a new recording of Gottfried Huppertz’s score, which dramatizes the conflict between wealthy über-capitalists and rebellious subterranean laborers—orchestrated by a diabolical scientist capable of destroying them both. 

Complimentary refreshments and popcorn will be served. This screening is part of the BSA Space Film Series covering a variety of design topics. All proceeds from the series support the BSA Foundation
