Double Feature! Book Signing With Henry Jaglom!
CITIZEN KANE / THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS

Introduction by Henry Jaglom, who will sign his new book My Lunches With Orson: Conversations Between Henry Jaglom and Orson Welles in the lobby at 6:30 PM.

CITIZEN KANE
1941, Warner Bros., 119 min, USA, Dir: Orson Welles

Orson Welles was only 25 when he directed this masterpiece, and it remains one of the most phenomenal motion pictures ever made. Welles, of course, also stars as Charles Foster Kane, a ruthless man who built a newspaper publishing empire and a character supposedly modeled after the real-life William Randolph Hearst. Trailblazing in so many respects, from Gregg Toland’s complex camera and lighting to Bernard Herrmann’s score to one of the finest ensemble casts (including Joseph Cotten, Everett Sloane and Agnes Moorehead) ever assembled. With an Academy Award-winning script by Welles and Herman J. Mankiewicz.


THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS
1942, Warner Bros., 88 min, USA, Dir: Orson Welles

Director Orson Welles' poetic, tragic adaptation of Booth Tarkington's novel, centering on the fall of one wealthy family, with Stanley Cortez's dynamic camerawork providing a panorama of turn-of-the-century America and the decay of the old aristocracy.
