ACTIVITY: Special film screening of Fritz Lang’s 1927 masterpiece “Metropolis” – with live Babylon Orchestra

February 18 @ 17:15 - 20:30

To coincide with the beginning of this years Berlinale film festival, and getting into the film crazy spirit that this time of year brings, the Circus has organised a very special treat for 5 lucky guests, as we visit one of Berlin oldest and most atmospheric independent cinemas to catch a screening of Metropolis… and wait for it… accompanied with a live performance of the music score by the Babylon Orchestra!!!!




Here’s what the Babylon have to say about the film screening:

” These are the Roaring Twenties!

In 310 days of shooting, with 36,000 extras and 200,000 costumes and the gigantic budget of five million Reichsmarks – a universal, timeless subject was transformed into pictures that have not lost their fascination to this day.  (Deutsche Kinemathek)

Like no other film, METROPOLIS represents the heyday of the German silent film made in Berlin – Babelsberg. Electricity got things moving, lighting up the nights and the asphalt.

The engine drove the car and the airplane, and the lift grew the skyscrapers. The cinematograph threw the vision / illusion of a future metropolis on the white walls of the cinema palaces and the people rose from the catacombs and demanded his fair share. A new era was born and is brought to life on the gold-framed canvas by the Babylon Orchestra Berlin in Babylon, built in 1929 in old / new splendor.


New edition (June 2023) of the salon orchestra score, with original music by Gottfried Huppertz”
