SUPERB and the UC Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film Archive (or BAMPFA) are excited to team up this 2019 to show some classic films to help bring out the inner cinephile in you- and first up is Metropolis!
Ninety years after its release in 1927, Metropolis is still recognized as one of the landmarks of science-fiction and late silent cinema. Fritz Lang’s German expressionist sci-fi masterpiece shows a futuristic dystopia in which the rich and idle live in a utopia that exists above a bleak underworld populated by mistreated workers. Filmmakers like Ridley Scott (Blade Runner), George Lucas (Star Wars) and Tim Burton (Batman Returns) have looked to this film as inspiration for their own classic sci-fi films.
Admission for UC Berkeley students is $5 (admission is higher for non-students) and you can purchase your tickets in advance here: http://tiny.cc/MetropolisBAMPFA. Buy your tickets before they’re sold out!
