Classic film buffs take note. Roger Ebert writes:
The eagerly awaited restored version of Fritz Lang's silent classic "Metropolis" will steam live on the internet on Friday Feb. 12. In America, it can be see in the afternoon. It's said that nearly an hour of footage, long thought to be lost, has been added. The footage was discovered in a film archive in Buenos Aires.... It will be streamed via websites in both German and France. The actual film is scheduled to start playing at 1:40 PM CST, Chicago time."
