London's Underground takes a starring role in this Hitchcockian tale of love, jealousy and murder. With its busy corridors, shadowy passages and plunging escalators, British Director Anthony Asquith brings a very modern 1920s London to the big screen. Witness this love-letter to our capital city from nearly one-hundred years ago.

Experience Fritz Lang's nightmarish vision of the future in its full glory.  

When man and machine collide, what is left of humanity? Underneath the glistening tiles  of the perfect city lies a secret which one wealthy resident will soon discover, making him question the price of his fellow citizen's luxury.

Introduction: 1 minute
METROPOLIS (Main feature) Part 1: 1h 33m
INTERVAL TIME: 20 minutes
METROPOLIS (Main feature) Part 2: 54m
