Shotgun Cinema will present Orson Welles' little-seen 1966 classic Chimes at Midnight tonight, March 30 at 7 p.m. at the Marigny Opera House, 725 St. Ferdinand. The film stars Welles as Shakespeare's character Falstaff and incorporates dialogue from five of the Bard's plays. The film was recently restored after long-simmering rights disputes were finally settled. Welles reportedly considered the film his finest work. More info here.
