Description

In celebration of the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Rockefeller presents the rarely shown Thomas Edison motion picture adaptation (1910, 16 min), with the German expressionist science-fiction drama Metropolis (1927, 156 min): a highly stylized futuristic city where a beautiful and cultured utopia exists above a bleak underworld populated by mistreated workers. With Chicago’s own Jay Warren on the Skinner organ.
