Sprockets and Dust and The Magnificent Revolution present Metropolis

Sunday 12th December 7.30pm the Cube Microplex

'A fully immersive cinematic treat'
The power grids have been knocked out all over the city,
It is cold, it is dark, it is underground, it is silent.
The city of Metropolis appears on screen with an opening montage of a gigantic machine that beats the heart of the massive city, all parts thrusting, moving, pounding and turning - eight bicycles that operate in the realm of light, take control of the legs, arms and bodies, that move on them.
The electricity for the screening will be produced by the cyclists – you, the audience - with music from Georgy 11811
Metropolis a throbbing, dystopian uber-city, where a decadent aristocracy thrives on the sweat of the labouring hoards underground, where human forces are driven to exploit each other and live in perpetual anxiety. A dark fairy tale that pits man against machine, the head against the heart, and the good Human Maria against the bad Robot Maria.
Bring warm clothes and blankets. Expect rum hot chocolates, hot toddies and roasted chestnuts from the brazier in the garden
Magnificent Revolution has been running bicycle powered cinemas since the summer of 2007.
