Writer Dorothy B. Hughes' stories are brought to the screen with this double feature of Robert Montgomery's RIDE THE PINK HORSE, a strange, oddly paced film that plays as much like a Japanese samurai movie as film noir, and THE FALLEN SPARROW, starring John Garfield as a Spanish Civil War veteran being driven crazy by stateside fascists (with actress Patricia Morison in person for a Q&A!).
NOIR CITY: THE 17TH ANNUAL FESTIVAL OF FILM NOIR
Argentine Noir Triple Feature! New FNF 35mm Prints!
The Film Noir Foundation brings new prints of EL VAMPIRO NEGRO (the stunning Argentine reimagining of Fritz Lang's M) and NO ABRAS NUNCA ESA PUERTA and SI MUERO ANTES DE DESPERTAR, originally conceived by the filmmakers as one anthology film but presented in a single, unified presentation tonight for the first time ever! Don't miss this rare chance to see these films with English subtitles.
Enjoy a day in historic Hollywood at the home of Hollywood's first movie premiere! Take a docent-led tour of the legendary 1922 Egyptian Theatre followed by a screening of the history film FOREVER HOLLYWOOD (exclusively shown at the Egyptian Theatre and featuring interviews with over 20 actors and filmmakers). See what it would have been like to be in a Grauman stage show with a visit to the dressing rooms and singers' boxes. Check out our state-of-the-art projection booth and more at this adaptively re-used historic landmark!
Instead of getting weepy when our travels in Noir City come to the end, we're celebrating the close of our 17th annual series of Film Noir (on the big screen) at the Egyptian Theatre! Get in a noir mood with a screening of THE GUILTY, followed by casino games, dancing, burlesque, vintage hair and makeup styling and other noir activities in our Courtyard. Dress as a femme fatale, gumshoe or gangster, or come as you are! Tickets only on sale on BrownPaperTickets.com.
This year's Film Noir Festival goes out with a bang with four back-to-back films in a proto-noir marathon: rare horror-mystery THE NINTH GUEST, an early standout performance from Henry Fonda in LET US LIVE, existential pre-Code gem (with a feminist slant) HEAT LIGHTNING, and lurid Caribbean island thriller SAFE IN HELL.
The success of STAR WARS plus the rise of the computer made science fiction a hot commodity at the end of the 1970s. A new wave of futuristic films catered to fans who frequented video arcades and took technological advance as a given. A series celebrating these films begins with THE LAST STARFIGHTER and sci-fi fantasy KRULL from the 1980s.
