Little Rock Horror Picture Show to screen 'Metropolis' with live score

More news from the Little Rock Horror Picture Show team: The 3rd annual festival, which will be held March 20-23 at the Ron Robinson Theater, will feature a screening of Fritz Lang's classic, Expressionist, sci-fi head-trip "Metropolis," featuring a live score by last year's Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase winners The Sound of the Mountain. Lang's best-known film is also one of his strangest  —it makes less sense every time you watch it, and I mean that as a compliment. A lot of artists have tried scoring the thing over the years, most famously Giorgio Moroder, and it's nice to see Arkansas taking a shot at it.

Other screenings just announced include "As the Palaces Burn," a documentary about murder and the metal band Lamb of God directed by Don Argott, and Conor Long's 1980s science fiction homage "Point B."
