FREE SATURDAY SCREENING at CAMERA

February 15, 3:00PM

CITIZEN KANE
Dir. Orson Welles (USA: 1941), 119 min.

This is the story of Charles Foster Kane. The film opens with a long shot of Xanadu - the private estate of Kane, one of the world's richest and most powerful men. In the middle of the estate is a castle. We see, inside the castle, a dying man examining a winter scene within a crystal ball. As he drops it, it smashes, and one word is heard - "Rosebud..." Pieces of newsreel-like footage detail how Kane amassed his fortune, turning full circle in the end.
