The Return of METROPOLIS with The Golden Hornet Project

metropolis-posterBy popular demand, the talented duo of Graham Reynolds and Peter Stopschinski will be reprising their highly acclaimed score for Fritz Lang's METROPOLIS at the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar on Sunday June 7.

The Golden Hornet Project's first performance of this score this year at SXSW brought down the house. The audience loved it. Several people told me it was the high point of their entire SXSW.

As Kevin Kelly wrote on the Film School Rejects blog:

"The Golden Hornet Project worked up an original (and fantastic) score for the movie, and played it on the stage just in front of the theater at the Alamo Ritz. It struck all the right notes, used sound effects where necessary, and even had a frenetic xylophone plonking along in perfect syncopation with the film... they really did knock it out of the park."

This screening will be of a 35mm archive print. Tickets are on sale now for both shows of this so-fun-you-won't-believe-it's-art event now. Get them here.
