“Metropolis”, Silent Film & Pipe Organ Featuring Ben Model, Silent Film Historian and Organist
- This event has passed.
The School of Performing Arts welcomes you to see one of the most important releases in the history of film, Fritz Lang’s 1927 silent masterwork, “Metropolis”. The film is known as the first full-length feature in the science-fiction genre, bringing together a vision of what life might be one-hundred years into the future – 2026! Inspired by the New York skyline, modernist art deco style, and futuristic robots, the film is a must-see for those who enjoy viewing masterworks of film. The film will be accompanied on the magnificent Founders Recital Hall organ by silent-film historian and acclaimed musician Ben Model.
Not an official offering of Woodbine Productions, the SDSU School of Performing Arts is pleased to bring Ben Model back by popular demand. Generously supported by Doug and Sandy Oleson, this feature is offered to raise awareness of the pipe organ in Founders Recital Hall within the Oscar Larson Performing Arts Center.
