As I have previously commented here, they have found the missing 25 minutes of Metropolis in an obscure museum (virtually a private collection) in South America, restored them, and released them to the public. Being a 85 year old movie you wouldn’t expect it to get a major distribution deal, and it didn’t, but the places you can go see it are all over. One of the best is the Austin Cinema Drafthouse presentation, shown (and original score performed live in) an Art Deco Powerhouse, so the setting for watching the movie is a match for the setting in the movie. To see it on the big screen my best option is to go for the next time around at the AFI Silver, one of my favorite movie hangouts, and the place where I just finally got to see the original Day The Earth Stood Still on a screen large enough to contain it.
