Old Woollen: METROPOLIS – SILENT FILM WITH LIVE MUSIC

April 18 @ 7:00 pm

Metropolis - Silent Film with Live Music

£14 + Booking Fee. Doors 7pm. Show 8pm. Unreserved Seating.

THIS EVENT TAKES PLACE IN THE 1912 BUILDING, NEXT TO THE OLD WOOLLEN.

Fritz Lang’s 1927 futuristic fantasy on the big screen with live accompaniment presented by Northern Silents.

The improvised live score is provided by Frame Ensemble, a group of Northern musicians specialising in improvised silent film accompaniments.

It is 2026. In the high-tech city of the future, the rich enjoy a life of luxury while the poor are enslaved underground, in the city’s mechanical underbelly. Tensions build between the subterranean workers and pampered surface-dwellers when the prophet-like Maria, with her subversive message of universal brotherhood, ignites the spark of revolution among the workers. The city’s mastermind, Freder, creates an android version of Maria to re-establish control.

But his creation, the robot Maria, cannot be controlled…
