Orson Welles wows in one of the greatest flicks of all time
Regent Cinema – Britain's oldest cinema – was the first place in the country to ever show moving pictures, kickstarting British cinema with a screening of Cinematographe in 1896. Since its reopening in May 2015 the staff have been dedicated to both engaging with the cinemas legacy and ensuring its future, for audiences and filmmakers. Now you can catch a special screening of The Third Man. Considered to be one of the greatest films of all time, it follows pulp novelist Holly Martins who travels to a shadowy postwar Vienna, only to find himself investigating the mysterious death of an old friend, black-market opportunist Harry Lime. Featuring a star performance from Orson Welles, an incredible score and groundbreaking cinematography, this is an essential box to be ticked on any film buff's movie list. "Like many, I have loved this thriller of conscience and betrayal most of my moviegoing life." – Chicago Tribune "It transformed the way I looked at the world." – Newsweek Certificate: PG. Runtime: 1 hour 44 minutes.
"This is a unique classic."
