Noir Noël

NOIR CITY once again offers the dark gift of film noir for the holidays. Join Noir City at San Francisco's historic Castro Theatre tonight Wednesday evening, December 18 for a double dose of Noir Noël: Allen Baron's landmark independent crime drama Blast of Silence (1961) followed by the ultra-rare genre-bending Christmas Eve (1947).

Mr. Baron will be in attendance to introduce his legendary cult classic, and at the intermission will be signing copies of his new book, Blast of Silence: A Memoir.

The show will also feature the public release of the NOIR CITY 12 program schedule, the unveiling of the new NOIR CITY 12 poster, and holiday shopping for the noir-lover in your life.

"Czar of Noir" Eddie Muller and the reigning Ms. NOIR CITY, Audra Wolfmann, will host.

Both films will screen in 35mm, and as usual tickets for this exceptional event are only $10 for the double bill—less than the cost of a single holiday eggnog at any bar in town!
