Citizen Kane will be shown at this year’s San Luis Obispo International Film Festival. The screening location will be at the Hearst Castle Visitor Center on March 9th.
Orson Welles produced the motion picture in 1941 as a thinly veiled attack on the life of William Randolph Hearst. The newspaper tycoon unsuccessfully sought to derail the project, which painted the corporate mogul as a yellow journalist, an unscrupulous businessman, and a cheater in his private life. Orson named his character - Charles Foster Kane... Hearst chose to never screen the movie at his estate during his lifetime.
The Hearst family recently gave its blessing with the understanding that the film is a work of fiction, rather than a documentary piece. Hearst Castle is now a state park that hosts tens of thousands of visitors each year.
