Dr. Mabuse, The Gambler
Saturday, Apr 2 at 1:00 pm
Location: Bartos Screening Room
Dir. Fritz Lang. Germany. 1922, 270 mins. Presented with an intermission. DCP. With Rudolf Klein-Rogge, Aud Egede-Nissen, Bernhard Goetzke, Gertrude Welcker, Alfred Abel, Paul Richter. In celebration of its 100th anniversary, MoMI is pleased to present Fritz Lang’s early crime masterpiece, a deliriously amoral and feverishly frenzied tour of Weimar-era Berlin at the heights of its decadence. Stuffed with surreal plot machinations, ghoulish characterizations, and alluring visual flourishes, Lang’s film chronicles the maniacal progress of the psychologist, hypnotist, and criminal genius Dr. Mabuse (Klein-Rogge), who seeks to bend all to his mental and erotic will.
Tickets: $15 / $11 senior and students / $9 youth (ages 3–17) / discounted for MoMI members ($7–$11). Order online. Please pick up tickets at the Museum’s admissions desk upon arrival. All seating is general admission. Review safety protocols before your visit.
