All about the film classic ‘The Third Man’ and Vienna after World War II
PERFORMANCE ERIK VAN BEUZEKOM performs the one man show 'ROSEBUD, the Lives of Orson Welles' written by Mark Jenkins. What a chance to experience Erik van Beuzekom in the private and intimate environment of the THIRD MAN MUSEUM. This is a wholly engrossing 90 minutes in which Erik Van Beuzekom embodies Orson Welles with an almost eerie authenticity, never wavering from complete embrace of this larger-than-life figure. From his childhood as a lauded prodigy in the arts to his legendary War of the Worlds broadcast and creation of the iconic film Citizen Kane. Lesser-known episodes of his life, including his radical stage direction of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar and Macbeth, as well as his pro-union production of The Cradle Will Rock, round out this production, highlighting Welles' innovative approach to the arts and his deep personal investment in the accomplishment of his vision. As Welles says, "All art is autobiographical. The pearl is the oyster's autobiography."

Marking the 80th year after the Anschluss, this special exhibition shows how it was possible things emerged like this: Raising the crowds, splitting up society. July Revolt 1927, Civil War 1934, Austro-fascist dictatorship, destabilisation of Austria by illegal local Nazis until the annexation (Anschluss) of Austria by Hitler-Germany in 1938. 1948 - VIENNA BECOMES A MOVIE STAR Filming “The Third Man in Vienna”. 01 September 2018 - 05 January 2019 In February 1948, Graham Greene came to Vienna to do research for “The Third Man”. A second visit followed in June 1948, this time together with director Carol Reed and producer Alexander Korda. The shoot in Vienna started in October 1948 and lasted until short before Christmas. In 1948 at the time of the Berlin Airlift, when the confrontation between the Soviets and the Western Allies escalated internationally, it was possible for the British film team in Vienna to shoot in the Soviet sector. “The Third Man” brilliantly captured Vienna’ situation after the war and made the city world famous as “movie star”.
