Extra! Extra! In this Edition:  Film Noir 3D & Closing Night Party!

Yeah, that's right Sister - we're having a little party alright!

Noir City 15th Anniversary Closing Night Party 
& ROAD HOUSE Screening

Sunday, April 21, 2013 - 6:00pm - midnight at the Egyptian Theatre

Cancel that jewelry story heist and the visit to your bookie. You can postpone the kidnapping and the extortion phone calls too - because we need you to be part of our racket on Sunday. We're celebrating 15 long years (and we don't mean in the state "pen") of Film Noir on the big screen in at the Egyptian Theatre!

Pull the brim of your fedora down low over your face and jump on the Red Car to join a bevy of other shady characters for a celebration - Noir City style. Set the mood with a 6PM screening of ROAD HOUSE starring Ida Lupino, Cornel Wilde, Celeste Holm and Richard Widmark, immediately followed by a party at Jefty’s (Egyptian Theatre) Courtyard "Road House!" And as a special added attraction, Bridget Duff, Ida Lupino's daughter will join us for her first ever viewing of the film ROAD HOUSE and an introduction!

Featuring an Italian dinner that would make Lucky Luciano's mama proud, a chance to wet your beak with a martini or a gin fizz in the lounge of the "Antlers Hotel" where you can also grab a dame or a sailor for a shuffle around the dance floor to the rhythms of the Dean Mora Swingtet featuring the sweetest canary you'll ever hear tweet.

Don't let the coppers catch you gambling when they raid the burlesque show! And of course, no trip to Jefty's Road House would be complete without bowling & vintage cars! And, introducing our Film Noir murder mystery interactive caper! Yes, the entire audience will have a chance to solve a crime (and win fabulous prizes in the process) right here at Grauman's Hollywood Egyptian Theatre!

Step into Noir City! Come as a femme fatale, gumshoe, gun moll or mobster (or come as you are - no special attire required)! Every guest will also have a chance to get their mugshot taken by Paper Moon Photos!

Our noir signature cocktails are created by Sadie Bar & Lounge mixologist Giovanni Martinez!

Film Noir 3D Double Feature at the Aero Theatre

Noir City Moves West to Santa Monica for 1 Night Only! 60th Anniversary Screenings: MAN IN THE DARK & INFERNO!

Presented in collaboration with the Film Noir Foundation

Saturday, April 20 - 7:30 PM at the Aero Theatre
1328 Montana Avenue, Santa Monica, CA 90403

MAN IN THE DARK

1953, Sony Repertory, 70 min, USA, Dir: Lew Landers

A long-lost noir in fully restored 3-D and glorious black-and-white! Pinched by the cops after pulling off a big heist, crook Steve Rawley (Edmond O’Brien) undergoes an experimental operation to eliminate his criminal urges. It also makes him forget where he hid the loot ... much to the consternation of his old gang and his itchy-fingered girlfriend (Audrey Totter). Fortunately, clues pop up (literally!) in Rawley’s dreams, and soon he’s leading the crooks and cops on a careening hunt for the money, culminating in a spectacular chase through Santa Monica’s creepy old Pacific Ocean Amusement Park! NOT ON DVD!

INFERNO

1953, 20th Century Fox, 83 min, USA, Dir: Roy Ward Baker

It’s the essential film noir plot: Illicit lovers hatch a "foolproof" scheme to bump off the woman’s rich, domineering husband. But what if the husband, left for dead in the scorching desert, doesn’t die? What if that husband, crippled but hell-bent on revenge, is played by the indomitable Robert Ryan? Watch as unmerciful nature takes on unbreakable man in amazing 3-D! Toss in titantic, titian-tressed Rhonda Fleming as the deceitful, voluptuous vixen, and you’ve got perhaps the best 3-D movie of the original Hollywood stereo-optic craze!

Special 3-D ticket pricing: $13 General, $11 Students/Seniors, $9 Cinematheque Members.
