Welcome to your neighbourhood film school, a new series of hosted screenings exploring film history and introducing current debates in cinema culture. Fill in the gaps in your film knowledge and join the conversation. London has one of the most exciting and diverse cinema scenes in the world, and we welcome the writers, critics, curators and cultural commentators of the capital to NW10. Everyone welcome!
Orson Welles's masterpiece changed cinema forever. As emotionally piercing as it is technically groundbreaking, the film tells the story of Charles Foster Kane, a newspaper magnate whose youthful ideals are corrupted by age and privilege. If you’ve never seen the film on the big screen (or never seen it at all), grab this chance to revel in its glittering deep-focus photography, larger-than-life performances and aching sense of human tragedy.
We’re proud to welcome Danny Leigh - BBC film critic and Senior Film and TV Curator at the BFI - to present a personal introduction to one of his favourite movies.
Need some weekend reading? The Friday before each screening we’ll email you film notes, suggested further reading and your free 30 days of Mubi.
