The Complete Metropolis with Alloy Orchestra (Wednesday, January 30, 7:30 p.m.) Working with a clamorous assemblage of percussion instruments, this three man musical ensemble performs its original live score to the newly restored version of Fritz Lang’s 1926 silent film masterpiece The Complete Metropolis, considered the first science fiction classic. Film critic Roger Ebert hails Alloy as “the best in the world at accompanying silent films.” This performance is a collaboration with the Keene State College Film Society and the Film Studies Department.
