Shirtless muscleman takes on the evil ruler of the futuristic city of Metropolis. In a nutshell that's the plot of Giant of Metropolis (1961) our next feature at Virtual Cinema a Go Go. This bonkers hybrid of sword-and-sandal epics and sci-fi thrillers has all the problems of any low budget film - the pace is a little slow, it's a tad pretentious and occasionally the whole film screeches to a halt while the mad king Yotar is entertained by sexy dancing girls. But what it lacks in the finer points Giant of Metropolis more than makes up for with the way-out set design, elaborate weaponry and the utterly insane story. Admission's free, but you'll need to register for access here.

As always, it's BYOP (Bring Your Own Popcorn). Come join us online Friday, May 7!
