Ciné-Real: Citizen Kane

Ciné-Real screens Citizen Kane in its original 16mm format

On 28 January at the Russet café in Hackney, Ciné-Real will present Citizen Kane (1941) in its original 16mm format.

Considered by many - including the leading critics and filmmakers behind five consecutive Sight & Sound polls - to be the greatest film ever made, Citizen Kane took American cinema to a new level of narrative daring and visual magnificence.

Produced, co-written, directed by and starring Orson Welles, it tracks the rise and fall of the titular Kane, a newspaper tycoon whose political career ends in scandal.
