Citizen Kane

Co-presented with PublicSource:
Still considered the best American film ever made, this beautifully layered epic tells the story of a rich and powerful newspaperman – and the reporter who leads a frustrating search for the meaning of Kane's last word – “rosebud.” With Welles, Joseph Cotten and Agnes Moorehead. (Orson Welles; 1941; 119 min)

Part of the September Sunday Series:
Typewriter Ribbons & Newsreels
This series begs the question: in this day of cellphones, facebook and twitter, is the pen still mightier than the sword? Here are five outstanding American classics about the old days of journalism, when reporters on the big screen uncovered big stories and bigger truths.

    I'll be in the lobby holding a meetup sign from about 7:30 or so until right before the movie starts. A word of warning - this may be very crowded so everybody may want to get there early. Last year "Casablanca" played and I almost didn't get in because we got there right before 8:00.

    Also - PLEASE change your RSVP if you decide to not attend, so I'm not standing in the lobby waiting for somebody who is not going to show up. Thanks.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
