Made in 1927, Fritz Lang’s masterpiece takes its place amongst some of the most iconic and influential films of all time. Set in a dystopian future, the drama unravels in a city divided between the thinkers and the workers, when the son of the city’s architect defies the expectations placed upon him to fall in love with a working class prophet who predicts the coming of a saviour.
This classic film will be made even more special by the accompaniment of a live score.
This is an event for the classic cinema enthusiast, the sci-fi fanatic, the live music lover or anyone looking for something a little different.
Doors - 7:30pm
Curfew - 11pm
About Film Unit
Film Unit is the award winning independent cinema located in the Sheffield Students' Union. Founded in 1949, we are a group of cinema lovers who desire to provide entertainment, to be not for profit, and to promote film as an art form.
We screen a selection of films on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays during term time, with the cheapest ticket price in Yorkshire. We specially curate our programme with blockbusters, independent, foreign, family and classic cinema, to ensure we provide something for everyone. For us, cinema should be for everyone, so all our standard screenings are open to the public, our matinee screenings are Hard of Hearing friendly with subtitles and this semester we are hosting a special Autism-friendly screening of Lego Batman. We're hosting two very special free screenings of I, Daniel Blake in association with Unite the Union and on April Fools' Day, we're holding a hilarious Fools Festival of British Comedy Cinema. We are volunteer-run so if you'd like to get involved, please get in touch. www.filmunit.org.uk
Once again many thanks to all our staff, volunteers and of course, our audience!
PLEASE NOTE: Online ticket sales include a 10% booking fee.
