Fritz Lang's Metropolis with Sci-Fi Giveaways!!

Witness a NYC Sci-Fi event this weekend at the Sunshine Cinemas. Come Downtown for "Metropolis" by Fritz Lang. This tale of the future is one of Lang's early German Expressionist films he did before being pushed to move to America during the War, where he mostly made Pulp films. (The Big Heat (1953), While the City Sleeps (1956)) This is the 1984 version of "Metropolis" with Giorgio Moroder's pop-rock soundtrack. Found footage that was cut for the original 1927 Science Fiction Classic is added to this to make it 80 minutes long. On Friday and Saturday night this silent Sci-Fi, the most expensive silent film ever made, is showing at Midnight. As with most Sci-Fi Films the Sunshine Cinemas has some giveaways for those who love all things Science Fiction. So Spend some time this weekend looking to the future to a mega-city and explore the concept of humans abusing technology.
