Silent Movie Night in Dumbo

Longing for the silent movies of the past? Attend “Silent Movie Night” at Galapagos Art Space on January 25th. They’ll be screening the original “Metropolis,” a classic German-Expressionist silent film released in 1927. The film explores the social crisis between workers and owners in capitalism, and is the most expensive silent film ever made.

No need to buy popcorn– chow down on Grimaldi’s pizza for $4 per slice. Doors open at 7:30 and the show starts at 8pm. Tickets are just $2, so get yours here!

    $4 dollars a slice! What a deal!

    I am assuming this will not be including the original score.

    Sticky, I think it does include the original music. I plan to go.

    BTW, you don’t have to pay the $1.06 web-reservation fee if you buy your $2 ticket at the door. “Metropolis” won’t be a sell-out showing, according the the Galapagos person I spoke with last night.

    i wish “marley and me” was a silent movie, then i wouldn’t have begged the stewardess to open the door and let me jump.

    I would go, except this very same restored print was shown recently on Turner Classic Movies. I was able to get some good photos of the additional material off my HD TV…

    I now have a VHS of the “Metropolis” that ran for years on TV, plus the Kino DVD of the semi-restored film which was shown on W. Houston Street. This is one of the great classics of science fictional cinema.

    I saw the restored version at the Film Forum last year. It adds immeasurably to an understanding of the motives of the principals and therefore of the story line. The (incomplete) version owned by MoMA was puzzling.
