Laemmle Theatres and Kino Lorber Films have teamed up to present a new DCP restoration of Fritz Lang's 1931 classic "M" in Los Angeles.

Lang's first film with sound (which the director deploys brilliantly in contrast with eerily silent sequences), "M" is a still-controversial, twisted tale of a child-killer (Peter Lorre) run amuck in Berlin. It holds up as an early experiment in thriller tropes as Lang continued to plumb the possibilities of cinema as he did in his 1927 silent sci-fi epic "Metropolis."

Beginning Friday April 5th, the TLEFilms Film Restoration & Preservation Services's restoration of "M" will screen exclusively at the Royal in West LA, the Playhouse 7 in Pasadena and the NoHo 7 in North Hollywood. Visit the Laemmle website for screening information. Trailer below.
