April 5 - 21, 2013
The American Cinematheque and the Film Noir Foundation return April 5 - 21 with the 15th annual Festival of Film Noir. Gumshoes, Shady Dames and Murderous mobsters converge for three weeks of dark tales of jaded gumshoes, femmes fatale and menacing heavies in gloriously gritty black and white. These evenings at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood (plus a special program of 3-D noir at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica) round up the form's usual suspects as well as rarely screened gems, including the Foundation's new 35mm restorations of HIGH TIDE (1947), REPEAT PERFORMANCE (1947) and TRY AND GET ME! (1950). Whether you're a noir novice or well-acquainted with this post-war demimonde of crime and (occasionally) punishment, Noir City is well worth a visit.
Series programmed by Eddie Muller, Alan K. Rode and Gwen Deglise. Program notes by John Hagelston.
