Noir City Film Festival: January 21-30

The San Francisco Noir City Festival returns for its 9th year to the Castro Theatre, January 21-January 30. Twenty-four Fantastic Films in 10 days! Presented by the Film Noir Festival and taking place at the historic Castro Theatre.

Theme this year? "Who's Crazy Now?" There's a lineup of 24 films of madness, ranging from the legendary Gaslight and A Double Life to obscure rarieties, all presented as originally intended in 35 mm celluloid. Among the 24 films will be movies directed by George Cukor, Samuel Fuller, Fritz Lang, Anthony Mann and Otto Preminger, among others.  Humphrey Bogart will be at his most malevolent in “The Two Mrs. Carrolls” (1947).  Marilyn Monroe will be seen in arguably her best work, “Don’t Bother To Knock” (1952). The Czar of Noir Eddie Muller will be the host of this amazing film festival! Noir City 9 will have surprises for festival moviegoers, with special guest appearances, among other events.
