Our 20th annual festival of film noir. Presented by the American Cinematheque and Film Noir Foundation
The longest-running film noir festival in Los Angeles returns to the Egyptian Theatre with another incredible lineup of rarities, presented as they were meant to be seen — on the big screen! To celebrate the 20th anniversary of NOIR CITY: HOLLYWOOD, we delve deep into the archives to present a sizzling slate of sinister cinema — virtually all in glorious 35mm, including prints struck expressly for this series. Returning as hosts are Eddie Muller and Alan K. Rode, whose Film Noir Foundation will proudly present 10 consecutive nights of sinuous shadows, dangerous desires and bitter beauties brimming with broken dreams.
Once again, we’ll take you back to the original film noir era with a program replicating the moviegoing experience of that time — TEN double bills, each featuring a major studio “A” picture paired with a shorter “B” movie. This year’s series is a blood-stained valentine to the City of Angels as we highlight films shot and set in the Los Angeles area — revisit midcentury Wilshire in I LOVE TROUBLE, Bunker Hill in THE TURNING POINT and the Bradbury Building in M, among other familiar locales. Join us in NOIR CITY!
