METROPOLIS - BLACK BISON FILM LODGE
Date Wednesday 27th April
For this month’s Black Bison Film Lodge, we present a very special event…the fully restored silent science fiction masterpiece METROPOLIS (1927), with LIVE and IMPROVISED score from our resident masked DJ The Screaming Meanies!
From 1927, METROPOLIS is easily the most visually stunning film of the Silent Era, its influence visible in every science fiction classic ever since – from Charlie Chaplin’s Modern Times and Blade Runner to Dark City and The Matrix films.
The story of a futuristic Utopian city, and the ghastly secret underground of slaves keeping its machines running, is perfectly realized by German director Fritz Lang, from its Expressionistic architecture to the phenomenal transformation from robot to the gorgeous Maria.
The Bison Bar is open from 5pm till late Wed-Sat, 4pm-8pm Sundays.
( 18+ venue )
