Metropolis At The Strand Theatre says
After 13 years, Metropolis returns to the Atlanta area for one very special night. See the screening of this 1927 silent film masterpiece surrounded by the Art Deco beauty it was inspired by at the beautiful Earl Smith Strand Theatre on Saturday, March 25.

In partnership with the Atlanta Chapter of the American Theatre Organ Society, this presentation will be accompanied live on the Mighty Allen GW-IV theatre organ by world-renowned artist Clark Wilson. Clark is one of the most prominent and recognized scorers of silent photoplays in America today. He works exclusively with the organ in developing accurate and historic musical accompaniments as they were performed in major picture palaces during the heyday of the silent film.

Metropolis is a 1927 German expressionist epic science-fiction drama film directed by Fritz Lang. It is regarded as a pioneering work of the science-fiction genre in movies, being among the first feature-length movies of the genre, incorporating themes of class, love, and society’s future. In a futuristic utopian city sharply divided between the working class and the city planners, the son of the city’s mastermind falls in love with a working class prophet who predicts the coming of a savior to mediate their differences.
This screening of Metropolis includes the recently discovered new scenes, once lost for over 80 years.

Due to the 2.5-hour runtime, this screening will begin at 7:30 p.m. Join us in the silent film themed Lumiere Lounge upstairs for a cocktail and free piano entertainment starting at 6:30 p.m.

Tickets are on sale now - $18 for orchestra level, $15 for balcony and current ATOS members.
