Sarnia, ON –  To mark the tenth year of its genre fiction writing and reading convention, GenreCon, the Sarnia Library is presenting a FREE movie, "The Third Man" on Monday, April 30 at 7 p.m. in the Sarnia Library Theatre.

.  Using expressionistic techniques "The Third Man" won the 1949 Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival and an Oscar for Cinematography.  The film's haunting and best selling score was entirely played on the zither.  The film also features noted British actors Trevor Howard, Bernard Lee, "Q" from the James Bond movies, and Wilfred Hyde White.   "The Third Man' was filmed in black and white and has a suggested MPAA Rating of PG-13 for thematic elements, brief nudity and some violence.


The GenreCon convention provides advice about writing genre fiction.  "The Third Man's" main character is an author of genre fiction.  GenreCon 2012 will take place the following Saturday on May 5 from 10am to 5pm also in the Sarnia Library Theatre.
