Fritz Lang’s Metropolis with Live Score – Texas Theatre Sunset Drive-In! – Encore!
The 2010 restoration of METROPOLIS is the definitive edition of Fritz Lang’s science fiction masterpiece. This DCP presentation accompanied with a live original score by Austin Composer & multi-instrumentalist DAVID DIDONATO LIVE at the Texas Theatre Sunset Drive-In!
This new score includes elements of classical, electronic, metal, dance, vaporwave, industrial, and shoegaze. The live performance is on a double-necked guitar, accompanying pre-recorded drum beats, pianos, synthesizers, organ, and various other sequenced instruments, painstakingly synchronized to match the film.
The restoration of the film adds new integration of scenes and subplots long considered lost which endows METROPOLIS with even greater tension and emotional resonance, as it dramatizes the conflict between wealthy über-capitalists and rebellious subterranean laborers—orchestrated by a diabolical scientist capable of destroying them
