Noir City Festival at Egyptian Theater (L.A.)


Recommended Posts

Thanks to moirafinnie's wonderful blog, I've just learned about this event at the Egyptian Theater in Los Angeles:




It's baaacckk!!! For the eleventh year, Hollywood's favorite film festival returns to the Egyptian Theatre with a delightful smorgasboard of rare noir that hasn't been seen on the big screen since Charles McGraw drove an L.A.P.D. Nash sedan! Details are forthcoming, but know that the American Cinematheque's Chris D. Czar of Noir, Eddie Muller and yours truly are digging deep for obscure, entertaining films and guests.


Here is a preliminary list of films that are scheduled for the festival. Please bear in mind that this is subject to change.
