Every few months, the Alloy Orchestra swings into town to provide live accompaniment for a few silent film screenings at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. The events always draw big crowds because the Alloy Orchestra adds so much to the films. Tonight at 8, the group performs to Fritz Lang's proto-sci-fi flick Metropolis. They've played along to Metropolis in the past but tonight will mark the first time that they've played along to the restored version of the film that checks in at 25 minutes longer than the original. The Alloy Orchestra will stick around tomorrow to accompany screenings of 1925's Phantom of the Opera and 1924's He Who Gets Slapped. Those screenings take place at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m., respectively. Tickets to the films range from $15-$20. (Jeff Niesel)
