If ever you wanted to impress a nerd with a unique romantic date (or if you yourself happen to be a nerd and will love the absolute hell out of this like we do), YOUR TIME HAS COME. Metropolis, the grandaddy of science fiction films, will be screened at AFI Silver on Thursday, February 21 with–get this–live orchestra accompaniment. The best part? We’re sending you for FREE.
If you’ve never seen Metropolis (or you’ve never seen it in its glorious, restored form), it is arguably the most influential science fiction film ever made, rife with political/economical commentary, love, lust, evil robots, and well, essentially everything you want in a perfect sci-fi film.
