What You'll Be Doing January 13 - 26th
San Francisco's Noir Film Fest
It's that time of year again! Fourteen days of hard boiled heroes, nihilistic thugs, ordinary people over the line, dirty deals gone wrong, and the kind of femme fatales that you just know aren't good for you... but you can't help but love them anyway.
Noir City, San Francisco's world-famous festival celebrating the greatest cinema ever made, will be transforming the Palace of Fine Arts into the Noir City nightclub complete with night after night of great jazz from the Marcus Shelby Trio, Johnny Nocturne's Noir Combo, and legendary jazzman Charlie Haden.
And the flicks? An amazing selection of black and white motion pictures await those who venture onto the dark side of the street, including Raymond Chandler's stunning Blue Dahlia featuring the gorgeous, booze-addled couple of Alan Ladd and Veronica Lake, the oh so rare noir gem Nightmare Alley, Lee Garmes' Crime Without Passion and never-before-screened copies of W.R. Burnett's Nobody Lives Forever and the 1949 suspense classic The Window, and many, many more.
Featuring special guests Coleen Gray, Charlie Haden, Stanley Rubinm and James Ellroy. Not to be missed!
@ the San Francisco Palace of Fine Arts & the Balboa Theater
