Citizen Kane at IFI

Citizen Kane & The Magnificent Ambersons in 35mm Double Bill

IFI Press Release: 17/7/2015
 
The Hangover Lounge presents a double bill of Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane &The Magnificent Ambersons
 
July’s Hangover Lounge at the IFI marks the centenary of Orson Welles’ birth with an unmissable double bill on July 26th. It’s a chance to spend an indulgent afternoon at the cinema combining a tasty brunch from the IFI Café Bar with two of Welles’ finest works from 35mm prints.
 
Citizen Kane (14.00), Welles’ debut, is one of the most influential films ever made. Following the death of newspaper magnate Charles Foster Kane, a reporter interviews those who knew him, trying to find the man behind the legend.
 
In what would become a regular occurrence throughout Welles’ career, The Magnificent Ambersons (16.15), in which the fortunes of the titular family suffer a decline in the age of the automobile, was hampered by studio interference. It is to his credit that what remains is regarded as one of his best works.
