The popular film series at the Issaquah Train Depot returns Saturday night.

Films @ the Train Depot! — sponsored by the city Arts Commission and the King County cultural agency, 4Culture — plans a free screening of “The Third Man” at 7 p.m. at the historic depot, 50 Rainier Blvd. N.

“The Third Man” features the tale of unemployed pulp novelist Holly Martins (Joseph Cotten) after a friend Harry (Orson Welles) dies in a truck accident. In World War II-ravaged Vienna, Holly slowly uncovers startling revelations about Harry’s life.

The noir thriller earned a Best Cinematography Academy Award and a nomination for director Carol Reed.

Since the program launched last October, Films @ the Train Depot! has featured series of train-themed films, films set in Washington and noir classics.

Upcoming films at the depot include “The Stranger” in November and “The Lady from Shanghai” in December.
