Movie Memories presents an online screening of The Third Man - a 1949 film noir directed by Sir Carol Reed (Odd Man Out, Oliver!). Starring Orson Welles as Harry Lime, a novelist who finds himself investigating the death of his friend in post-war Vienna.

As powerful and stunningly original now as when it premiered in 1949, The Third Man is considered one of the greatest British films of the 20th Century.

For those who enjoy a musical interlude, there is bonus content to boost your experience. If you rent the film you will have access to music videos beautifully performed by guitarist Laura Browne. With thanks to Shape History for production.

All tickets £3.49. Film content: mild threat.
