The Third Man (PG)

Regularly voted the greatest British film ever made, The Third Man is essential big screen viewing, showing for the first time in the grand surroundings of the Town Hall. Famous for many reasons: the great novelist Graham Greene's best original screenplay, Robert Krasker's vivid expressionist camera work of post-war Vienna, Orson Welles' unforgettable scene-stealing cameo and Anton Karas's infectious zither score. Any one of these elements would elevate a film to greatness, but in The Third Man they all come together under the direction of Carol Reed to create a seamless and atmospheric masterpiece.
