Bijou presents: 4K restoration of 'The Third Man'

The Bijou Film Center's next move will be to present the newly restored version of "The Third Man" (1949) at the Byrd Theatre on Sunday, September 6, at 7 p.m. Admission $10.00.

Following the one-time-only screening of the film noir gem an after-party will unfold at the New York Deli, located just two doors west of the movie theater. Gypsy Roots will perform live on stage.

Richmond Magazine's Harry "The Hat" Kollatz, Jr., offers some background on the 4K restoration of the film and its protagonist from Petersburg, Virginia -- Joseph Cotten (pictured above). This movie, set in post-WWII Vienna, is one of several collaborations between Cotten and Orson Welles. Click here to read Kollatz's piece.

Advance tickets for $7.00 are available at Bygones Vintage Clothing and Steady Sounds. To read more on one of the most beloved movies of all-time go here.
