Description: <p><em>The Lady From Shanghai</em> (1947. 87 minutes) – Orson Welles brews a brash, sexy thriller crackling with energy. A mischievous adventurer (Orson Welles) is bewitched by a blonde temptress (Rita Hayworth). The climax in the funhouse hall of mirrors is one of cinema&rsquo;s most audacious and inventive sequences. Coronado Public Library, in partnership with the Coronado Island Film Festival, presents Film Forum Coronado, taking place the first and third Wednesday of each month in the Library&rsquo;s Winn Room. Film expert Ralph DeLauro provides a brief introduction to each film and leads a discussion afterwards, often including pointers about how lighting or camera angles contribute to a scene&rsquo;s mood or propel the story. Registration is suggested but not required.</p>
