Metropolis feat. Anvil Orchestra

MKE Film Festival

The Anvil Orchestra (a reformation of the Alloy Orchestra) returns to the Milwaukee Film Festival, providing their inimitable brand of musical accompaniment to Fritz Lang's 1927 sci-fi opus METROPOLIS. A stunning tale of working-class rebellion, mad scientists, and sexy lady robots, METROPOLIS is the urtext of sci-fi cinema. And the experience of a classic silent film coupled with live music in the Oriental Theatre (also born in 1927) is an incomparable experience!
