Back in July I did a post about Butterscotch Sunday, a series of interactive screenings taking place in and around Exeter co-organised by my sister Hannah. Having been involved in the Mulholland Drive screening and given a plug for Fantastic Mr. Fox, it's now my proud duty to draw your attention to the next such screening.Metropolis, Fritz Lang's 1927 German expressionist masterpiece, which received a 2010 re-release in a new version following the discovery of missing footage. While the soundtrack that accompanied the 2010 release is pretty remarkable by itself, this screening will have a live piano accompaniment, creating a truly unique cinematic experience.
All tickets for the screening cost £7, and the Bike Shed's doors will be open from 7pm. For more details about the event and where you can purchase tickets, check out the Butterscotch Sunday Facebook page here. Finally, in case you need any more incentive, I'll be performing a little something as part of the evening's entertainment. See you on the 13th...
P.S. To get a more in-depth idea of what to expect, check out my review of Metropolis from 2010 here.
