Citizen Kane

Forum Cinema Hexham   /   Friday 20th March 

Screening of Orson Welles’ ground-breaking masterpiece Citizen Kane on 35mm film.

Seldom seen on the big screen in recent years, Welles’ witty, gripping film famously views the controversial life of the late Charles Foster Kane (Welles) – a media tycoon partly inspired by William Randolph Hearst – from the sometimes-contradictory perspectives of his friends, employees and mistress.

An affecting meditation on memory, self-knowledge, solitude and mortality; a wry reflection on fame, fortune and the spirit of America; an exhilarating exploration of the artistic possibilities of the film medium – Citizen Kane is all this… and so very much more.
