We started the month with our two accompanying seasons (the early films of Fritz Lang and a season of science fiction classics that were influenced by Metropolis) and now we finally get to put the main attraction back on the big screen. Reviews in so far have garnered much praise, with the restored version boasting five star reviews from The Irish Times (read it here), Irish Independent and Evening Herald. And we're sure there are more to come. Not only have the critics been loving it, but advance sales have been so great that we've already had to swap some screenings into our larger cinemas to accommodate the demand.
If seeing Metropolis only whets your appetite for more Lang and sci-fi, this weekend will also see screenings of Lang's earlier film Woman in the Moon and the sci-fi classic Dark City.
