The Third Man: 70th Anniversary Screening
Director: Carol Reed
Starring: Orson Welles, Joseph Cotten, Alida Valli
Release Date: Sun 29 Sep 2019
Considered by many as the best British film ever made, The Third Man returns to the big screen for one night only on September 29th, with special additional content filmed on 1st September 2019, the 70th Anniversary of the original World Premiere.
Directed by Carol Reed (The Fallen Idol, Oliver!) from an original script by acclaimed novelist Graham Greene, The Third Man won the Grand Prix at Cannes and the BAFTA for Best British film and is beloved by filmmakers the world over from Martin Scorsese to Ben Wheatley. Oscar-winning cinematography showcasing the shadowy underbelly of a bombed-out Vienna, an endlessly quotable performance by Orson Welles and an iconic soundtrack from zither player Anton Karas, a Viennese busker plucked from obscurity by Reed, all combine to make one of the most memorable thrillers of all time.
Enjoy the film back on the big screen in a 4k restoration, complete with a pre-screening exclusive musical performance from Cornelia Mayer, a Viennese zither player that trained with Anton Karas, and a post-screening Q&A hosted by film critic Danny Leigh featuring Angela Allen, one of the last remaining crew members, special guest and fan of the film writer/director Hossein Amini and more special guests TBC.
