Citizen Kane

Part of our 90th anniversary celebration, we’re screening iconic movies decade by decade!

Our 1940s film title, selected by popular vote: CITIZEN KANE
When a reporter is assigned to decipher newspaper magnate Charles Foster Kane’s (Orson Welles) dying words, his investigation gradually reveals the fascinating portrait of a complex man who rose from obscurity to staggering heights. Though Kane’s friend and colleague Jedediah Leland (Joseph Cotten), and his mistress, Susan Alexander (Dorothy Comingore), shed fragments of light on Kane’s life, the reporter fears he may never penetrate the mystery of the elusive man’s final word, “Rosebud.” 1941. Rated PG. 1 hour, 59 minutes.

Citizen Kane is also a part of the Wrangler Great American Movie Series at the Carolina. Guests will have the opportunity to win one of three new pairs of Wrangler jeans before the movie, so make sure you get your name in the lobby drawing before you settle in for the show!
