The Return Of Noir City

Eddie Muller's tribute to all hard-boiled world-weary cinema chiaroscuro, Noir City, celebrates its 10th anniversary January 20-29, 2012 at San Francisco's Castro Theatre. Special guest star Angie Dickinson, who will be interviewed by Mr. Muller (A.K.A. The Czar Of Noir) in between screenings of Don Siegel's THE KILLERS (1964) & John Boorman's POINT BLANK (1967), headlines the 10-day festival of dark, corrosive and foreboding-filled celluloid rarities.

This year's extravaganza will include the Film Noir Foundation's recently completed preservation of Michael Curtiz' The Breaking Point (starring John Garfield), as well as brand new 35mm prints of the 1949 version of The Great Gatsby and Naked Alibi, co-starring Sterling Hayden and Gene "Burke's Law" Barry with perennial favorite blonde bad girl bombshell Gloria Grahame. Brian Darr's Hell On Frisco Bay blog covers the 10th anniversary lineup in detail.

Tickets are available online via Brown Paper Tickets. For more info, visit the Noir City website.
