The world’s most popular film noir festival, NOIR CITY will return for its eleventh annual odyssey: January 25th – February 3rd, 2013. According to their website, Film noir devotees will spend ten glorious days and nights watching double features the way they were meant to be seen: on the big screen, in lustrous 35mm, in one of America’s great movie palaces, San Francisco’s historic Castro Theatre. The Film Noir Foundation will be presenting celebrated classics of the genre, as well as, wonderful rarities; some saved from extinction by the FNF. The opening weekend’s special guest star is a legendary performer! AND, expect a premiere of the FNF’s latest restoration!
On the closing weekend, fans will again have the opportunity to time-travel to the 1940s with the return of the Noir City Nightclub, Saturday night, February 2nd. You will enjoy cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and a sensational lineup of live entertainment in a posh vintage venue— the Regency Lodge. Festival screenings are timed so you can attend the nightclub without missing any of the films! Proceeds from the festival help fund the FNF’s preservation efforts year round. Full series Passports and Nightclub tickets go on sale December 1st.
