Regent Street Cinema Presents: Metropolis

Silent film with a live soundtrack

"The starting-point of so much modern cinema."

- The Independent
Built in 1848, Regent Street Cinema was the first in the country to show moving pictures. With a recent renovation restoring it to its former grandeur, it has added an old school touch to the capital's movie scene, perfect for catching those classic flicks. This time around, Metropolis, a 1927 German sci-fi, is reinvigorated thanks to a live soundtrack from Stephen Horne. In a futuristic city, one man's utopia is another's dystopia. Groundbreaking at the time, Metropolis still looks several shades of awesome. "An eternally prescient and relevant film about the fetishisation of modern technology." – The Guardian "One of the last examples of the imaginative -- but often monstrous -- grandeur of the Golden Period of the German film, Metropolis is a spectacular example of Expressionist design." – The New Yorker Certificate: PG. Runtime: 1 hour 48 minutes.
