NOIR CITY celebrates its 10th anniversary at the Music Box Theatre with a week-long extravaganza of nine double features, August 17-23, kicking off with an opening night tribute to writer-director Carl Franklin. FNF president Eddie Muller will join the director for an in-person discussion between screenings of Franklin's neo-noirs Devil in a Blue Dress (1995) and One False Move (1992). The festival's following six days will present a total of 16 classic noirs as they were experienced on their original release, pairing a top-tier studio "A" with a shorter, low-budget second feature or "B" film. The FNF's latest restoration, The Man Who Cheated Himself, an independently made noir thriller from 1950 shot on location in San Francisco, will screen along with Paramount's new digital restoration of Byron Haskin's I Walk Alone (1948) starring a trio of powerhouse noir players: Burt Lancaster, Kirk Douglas, and Lizabeth Scott. 
The FNF's Eddie Muller and Alan K. Rode will be your guides through the dark alleyways of NOIR CITY. Opening weekend shows (Friday – Sunday) will be presented by Muller and weeknight shows by Rode. The full schedule, showtimes, and advance tickets are now available on the Music Box's website.
