Metropolis Cinema

Since its creation in 2006, the Lebanese Association for Art House Cinemas, Metropolis, aims to defend and promote cinema by presenting it in its different genres, eras and tendencies. The Metropolis Association, now associated to the Empire Circuit, programs the Metropolis Empire Sofil theater, at the heart of Beirut. It presents today the only alternative for auteur films in Lebanon. It has organized several film events and cycle, but also retrospectives of acclaimed filmmakers (Michelangelo Antonioni, Jacques Tati, Robert Bresson…) and cine-concerts of cult movies (Murneau's Faust, Wiene's Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, Eisenstein's Battleship Potemkin) with Lebanese and international artists. It has also established its own Animation Film Festival, Beirut Animated, in addition to presenting events with various international organisms: the cultural channel Arte, the magazine Les Cahiers du Cinéma, Cannes' Directors Fortnight and Cannes' Critics' Week.
