The Orson Welles Centennial Festival and Classic Cinemas will celebrate the iconic filmmaker’s 100th birthday with a screening of “Citizen Kane” in the “Harold Ramis Auditorium” of the recently renovated Woodstock Theatre. Directed, co-written and produced by the 25-year-old Welles, “Citizen Kane” is often considered by critics, filmmakers and fans to be the greatest film ever made. Welles spent his formative teenage years in Woodstock at the Todd School for Boys and considered Woodstock his hometown. The screening is part of the Orson Welles Centennial Festival, which runs through May 23, and includes the film festival, speakers, a panel discussion and a wrap-up party and dance.
