A New Monthly Series — Silent Films Scored Live Every First Sunday by Al Church and Friends
Whether he backing on guitar, drums, or keyboards for local stalwarts such as Gaelynn Lea or Actual Wolf, or fronting his own popular 80’s infused solo act — Al Church has become a Swiss Army Knife of the local music scene. And now he’s bringing his talents to The Parkway for the new monthly series, Al Church’s Cinematic Orchestra Presents. Al’s signature sound will be accompanied by special guests, and your favorite visual gems, projected on the big screen. March brings Metropolis, the influential 1927 sci-fi classic directed by Fritz Lang.
In Metropolis, a beautiful and cultured utopia exists above a bleak underworld populated by mistreated workers. When a privileged youth discovers the grim scene under the city, he becomes intent on helping the workers. He befriends a rebellious teacher, which puts him at odds with his authoritative father, leading to an epic conflict.
