Fritz Lang – 1927 – 148m – Germany – In German with English Subtitles

In July 2008, it was announced that an essentially complete copy of Fritz Lang’s visionary masterpiece METROPOLIS had been found at the Buenos Aires Museo del Cine in Argentina.  It included not merely a few additional snippets, but 25 minutes of scenes (one-fifth of the complete running time) considered lost for 80 years.  From conception to completion, the restoration took nearly a full year and cost almost $1 million to complete.  This digitally restored footage and Gottfried Huppertz’s magnificent original score provide the closest version to the director’s original vision since its premiere in 1927.

In the future, Metropolis is a bustling city-state where two groups make up the population. The thinkers live above ground and enjoy the fruits of life, while the workers live underground creating the fruits that the thinkers enjoy. When Freder Fredersen, the son of the city leader, journeys underground with Maria, advocate for the workers, he witnesses first hand the horrors that the workers live in. Can he and Maria bring the parties together or will the thinkers further dominate the underground workforce?

The Guild Cinemas is located at 3405 Central Ave NE in the Nob Hill area (across the street from Flying Star Cafe and Starbucks).
