Movie Credit Typeface

In the newly restored version of Fritz Langs classic film Metropolis…… anyone know what typeface they used for the credits and dialogue?

It looks like one of the digital variations on Koch Antiqua, possibly Eva Antiqua.

I’m not sure what typestyle that is…. but I really like the movie! Fritz Lange was decades ahead of his time.

True dat, Winking Cat!
Check out his Hollywood work when he came to US.

A face that is very similar is Paramount (in keeping with the “movie” thread). Paramount was an ATF-designed (1930) heavier companion face for Rivoli which of course was a rip-off of Eve.
