Orson Welles as Charles Foster Kane.


Akira Kurosawa’s “Seven Samurai.”


Perhaps no two movies have had more of an impact on cinema than these two masterpieces – “Citizen Kane” and “Seven Samurai.”

These two movies have been consistently featured at our bonus Film Nights. As I've frequently said, if you're serious about film, you better watch these two movies.
