Carol Reed’s classic masterpiece film noir based on the novel of the same name by Graham Greene has been beautifully re-released in a complete 4K ultra HD version for theaters (cut) in honor of the 100th birthday of iconic film icon Orson Welles. Aside from Citizen Kane, the The Third Man is considered to be Welles' best and most well-known films.

Testament of Youth is a powerful story of love, war, and remembrance based on the First World War memoir by Vera Brittain, starring Kit Harington (Game Of Thrones) and Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina). Brittain's novel has become the classic testimony for WWI from a woman's point of view.
