Always one to promote classic films, the James River Film Society revives its Film for Lunch series with Great Adaptations of the Silver Screen every Thursday until Dec. 1. All films are projected in 16 mm, courtesy of the society’s archives. The first film is Orson Welles’ “The Magnificent Ambersons” (1942), pictured, the director’s ambitious follow-up to the classic “Citizen Kane.” Starring Petersburg’s Joseph Cotten, the story centers on the demise of the prominent Amberson family at the dawn of the 20th century as the spoiled young heir to the family fortune comes between his widowed mother and the man she loves. The event’s future screenings include “Great Expectations,” “The Big Sleep” and “A Place in the Sun.” “The Magnificent Ambersons” plays Thursday, Nov. 3, at noon in the basement auditorium of the Richmond Public Library Main Branch. Free. 646-4256.
