Rediscover a classicOne of the most enigmatic films of all time is being screened at the prestigious Gate Picturehouse. Long recognised as the predecessor of modern sound film and written and directed by the illustrious Orson Welles, the story is framed as a fragmented biography of American newspaper tycoon, Charles Foster Kane. Upon his death, Kane muttered a single phrase that went on to become one of the most recognisable movie phrases in the history of cinema... 'Rosebud'. The film follows an investigative journalist's journey as he attempts to piece together the isolated tycoon's life and find out the true meaning behind the word that took his final breath. A fascinating and historical piece, this showing of the film, fully restored, is not one to miss.
'Rapturous in style, resonant in subject, rich in soul: it’s the classic that keeps on giving, its parts and pizzazz inexhaustible.' - Total Film
