November 10, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 10:00 pm
The historic Victoria Theatre at 16th and Capp Streets in San Francisco’s Mission District will host an evening of Club Foot Modern Machines, featuring composer and founder Richard Marriott (winds), Gino Robair (percussion and electronics), Alisa Rose (violin), Kymry Esainko (keyboards), Beth Custer (clarinets), Will Bernard (electric guitar), Chris Grady (trumpet), Matt Heckert (machines), and Kal Spelletich (machines) for the complete 156-minute version of Fritz Lang’s 1926 masterpiece, Metropolis at 7:00.
Fritz Lang’s film portrays a technological future where workers toil with mind numbing devotion to their machinery while the privileged few pursue their pleasures in palaces built in the sky.
The program will open at 5:30 with “Moving Silently” a collection of international short videos curated by Veronica Shimanovskaya, and accompanied by the Modern Machines.
