Sept. 6: "The Third Man" 4K restoration

The Bijou Film Center will present the newly restored 4K version of "The Third Man" at the Byrd Theatre on Sun., Sept. 6, 2015, at 7 p.m.

Don't forget, The Byrd has a new 4K projector in its booth. The proceeds will benefit the Bijou Film Center and the Byrd Theatre Foundation. Here are the basic details:

"The Third Man" (1949): B&W. 104 minutes. Directed by Carol Reed. Cast: Joseph Cotten, Alida Valli, Orson Welles, Trevor Howard. Note: Screenplay by Graham Greene. This elegant murder mystery is set in crumbling post-WWII Vienna. Or, is it a murder mystery? The main characters are all working their own angle, so the truth isn’t easy to grasp.

Maybe as close to a perfect movie as it gets. For more on the film and the restoration click here.
  • Admission: $10.00 at the box office. 
  • Advance tickets for $7.00 will be available soon at selected locations and online (a service charge of about a dollar is added to the price for online purchases).
The after-party will unfold at the New York Deli following the screening. Gypsy Roots will perform live on stage. Admission will be free. 

More information will be posted soon.
