Movies with Message

On Friday, July 26, we will present “Citizen Kane” (1941), directed by and starring Orson Welles. Considered by many to be the greatest film of all time, it tells the story of a fabulously rich newspaper tycoon (a character based on William Randolph Hearst) who seeks the American dream through the use of power, corruption and deceit, and by the accumulation of possessions. His life story is told through flashbacks as a reporter investigates the meaning of his dying word “Rosebud”. Nominated for 9 Oscars, including Best Picture and Actor, it was awarded one for best original screenplay.

Looking Ahead ... On Friday, August 23 we will show the early Frank Capra film “The Miracle Woman” (1931), starring 24 year old Barbara Stanwyck, who gives an incredible performance in one of her first leading roles. The film tells the story of the daughter of a minister who dies of a broken heart after he is retired by his congregation due to his age, which causes her to lose her faith. She is then recruited by a con man to perform fake miracle healings at revival meetings. Will her love for a blind aviator who comes to her for healing restore her faith in God?  

As usual, fresh popcorn will be served!
