Metropolis at The Barbican

Metropolis Arguably the most famous silent movie of all time, Metropolis gets an outing at London's Barbican Hall in October with a twist - a live orchestra will be playing the original score.

Fritz Lang's 1926 futuristic masterpiece was also the first ever sci-fi blockbuster - set in 2000 in the mechanised city of Metropolis, the rich enjoy life on the ground, while the oppressed workers toil below-deck to keep the upper classes in their life of luxury. This one-off presentation features the original score, performed live by the renowned German Film Orchestra Babelsberg.

You can catch it on 2nd October as part of the Barbican's Silent Film series, with tickets starting at £8.50. You never know, it might wash away memories of that truly awful Queen-initiated 80s score.
