If you happened to be passing by the High Museum Tuesday night you might have noticed they were projecting the science fiction movie, Metropolis outside the building.    The 1927 Fritz Lang film tells the story of a working class who toils underground to sustain a ruling class living in luxury up on the surface.   The film was scored live last night by Sonic Generator the contemporary music ensemble-in-residence at Georgia Tech.  WABE’s David Barasoain was there and has this report.
