Watch films

Among the objects listed by UNESCO as particularly significant in regard to history, one may find films as well. There are but few of them – i.a., the pioneering works of the Lumière brothers, The Forgotten Ones by Luis Buñuel and Metropolis by Fritz Lang (1927). The cult work of German Expressionism had an extreme case of bad luck – it enjoyed no commercial success, the original tapes were destroyed and records were found only 80 years later. The second release of Metropolis took place in 2010 at the Berlin Festival. You will be able to see Metropolis in August at the Copernicus Science Centre open-air cinema. Additionally, you may attend Summer Fridays, from June 29th to August 31st.
