The Round Rock Public Library hosts a Classic Film Night program this month at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, May 12.

Join us once a month for a screening of a classic film and popcorn.

This month's feature film celebrates the 70th anniversary of one of America's greatest films, Orson Welles' Citizen Kane.

Summary: A group of reporters who are trying to decipher the last word ever spoke by Charles Foster Kane, the millionaire newspaper tycoon: "Rosebud." The film begins with a news reel detailing Kane's life for the masses, and then from there, we are shown flashbacks from Kane's life. As the reporters investigate further, the viewers see a display of a fascinating man's rise to fame, and how he eventually fell off the "top of the world."

Citizen Kane was released May 1st 1941. It was directed by and stars Orson Welles. The film is often considered the greatest of all time and is particularly praised for its innovative cinematography, music and narrative structure. While nominated for nine Academy Awards, it only won an Academy Award for Best Writing (Original Screenplay) by Herman Mankiewicz and Welles.
