The film often referred to as the greatest movie of all time can be seen tonight on the big screen

Dir. Orson Welles. 1941, 119 mins. 35mm. With Orson Welles, Joseph Cotten, Agnes Moorehead.

Here it is: the big one. For decades consistently ranked by critics and filmmakers around the world as the greatest movie of all time, Welles’s perversely grandiose portrait of a newspaper tycoon loosely based on William Randolph Hearst is a dazzling work of art that ushered in a new era in virtuosic filmmaking and fragmented cinematic narratives. With one stunningly composed image—and sound—after another, this tale about the seductive, corrupting nature of power in America isn’t really seen until it’s seen big.
