Directed by Carol Reed from an original script by acclaimed novelist Graham Greene, The Third Man won the BAFTA for Best British film and is beloved by filmmakers the world over. Oscar-winning cinematography showcasing the shadowy underbelly of a bombed-out Vienna, an endlessly quotable performance by Orson Welles and an iconic soundtrack from zither player Anton Karas, a Viennese busker plucked from obscurity by Reed, all combine to make one of the most memorable thrillers of all time.
Enjoy the film back on the big screen in a 4K restoration, complete with a pre-screening exclusive musical performance from Cornelia Mayer, a Viennese zither player that trained with Anton Karas, and a post-screening Q&A hosted by film critic Danny Leigh featuring Angela Allen, one of the last remaining crew members, fan of the film writer/director Hossein Amini and more special guests.
