“Metropolis,” Tuesday, March 30, at 8 p.m., at the Ocala Drive-In or online from the safety of your home, with online discussion on Wednesday, March 31, from 12:30-1:30 p.m. hosted by Mark Neumann. This German expressionist science-fiction film presents a highly stylized futuristic city where a beautiful and cultured utopia exists above a bleak underworld populated by mistreated workers. When the privileged youth Freder discovers the grim scene under the city, he becomes intent on helping the workers. He befriends the rebellious teacher but this puts him at odds with his authoritative father, leading to greater conflict. The film is regarded by many critics as one of the most innovative and influential films ever made. We will be screening Giorgio Moroder’s 1984 painstaking restoration of “Metropolis,” which includes a pop soundtrack and previously deleted scenes and images. This film has a total run time of 83 minutes.
