The Orpheus Cinema, Bristol - 'The Third Man'. Sunday 13th October, 6.00pm.
Fuller's Frontier Presents 'The Third Man'. Each ticket will come with a free pint of Frontier! (Over 18's only, ID maybe require) Considered by many as the best British film ever made, we celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the release of THE THIRD MAN with brand new exclusive content and a screening of the film. Audiences will be treated to a pre-screening musical performance from Cornelia Mayer, a Viennese zither player, including insights into the genesis of the score and anecdotes about its composer Anton Karas, and a post-screening Q&A hosted by film critic and author Matthew Sweet featuring Angela Allen, one of the last remaining Third Man crew members, and fan of the film writer/director Hossein Amini (McMafia, Drive, The Wings of a Dove)
Directed by Carol Reed (The Fallen Idol, Oliver!) from an original script by acclaimed novelist Graham Greene, THE THIRD MAN won the Grand Prix at Cannes and the BAFTA for Best British film and is beloved by filmmakers the world over from Martin Scorsese to Ben Wheatley. Oscar-winning cinematography showcasing the shadowy underbelly of a bombed-out Vienna, an endlessly quotable performance by Orson Welles and an iconic soundtrack from zither player Anton Karas, a Viennese busker plucked from obscurity by Reed, all combine to make one of the most memorable thrillers of all time.
Holly Martins (Joseph Cotten), a writer of pulp Westerns, arrives in post-war Vienna on the invitation of his childhood friend Harry Lime. But on arrival he finds that Harry has recently been killed by a car whilst crossing the street, leaving a grief-stricken lover, Anna (Alida Valli). When local British investigating office Calloway (Trevor Howard) claims that Lime was an unsavoury criminal, Martins accepts an offer from a local book club to stay in Vienna in order to clear his friend's name. As he investigates his friend's last hours, he grows closer to the doomed Anna, and learns of an unidentified "third man" at the scene of the accident, who may hold the key to the deepening mystery surrounding Harry's death.

(Over 18's only, ID maybe require) After witnessing a Mafia murder, slick saxophone player Joe (Tony Curtis) and his long-suffering buddy, Jerry (Jack Lemmon), improvise a quick plan to escape from Chicago with their lives.

While Joe pretends to be a millionaire to win the band's sexy singer, Sugar (Marilyn Monroe), Jerry finds himself pursued by a real millionaire (Joe E. Brown) as things heat up and the mobsters close in.
