NOIR CITY: Chicago

Listen up, Chicago! NOIR CITY: Chicago arrives at the Music Box Theatre August 23–29, offering an astounding lineup of classic films noir—including the Windy City premieres of the FNF's latest preservation projects: Try and Get Me! (1950), Repeat Performance (1949), and High Tide (1948).

NOIR CITY features both celebrated classics and wonderful rarities, some freshly rescued from extinction and screened in glorious new film prints, others shown for the first time in gorgeous digital restorations. This is a week long noir extravaganza celebrating its 5th anniversary in Chi Town.

Eddie Muller will host the opening weekend. Film historians Alan K. Rode and Foster Hirsch will present films during the rest of the festival.
