NOIR CITY D.C.: October 12-25, 2018

Mr. Muller and Mr. Rode Go to Washington
NOIR CITY returns to the AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center in Silver Spring, MD, October 12-25. Taking attendees back to the golden age of film noir, NOIR CITY will present this year's films as they were experienced upon original release––pairing a top-tier studio "A" with a shorter, low-budget second feature or "B" film. In addition, there will also be a teaming of both versions of The Killers: Robert Siodmak's 1946 classic with Burt Lancaster and Ava Gardner, playing with Don Siegel's 1964 reimagining with John Cassavetes and Angie Dickinson, which puts more emphasis on the killers, played by Lee Marvin and Clu Gulager. The FNF's latest restoration, The Man Who Cheated Himself (1950), shot on location in San Francisco, will screen along with Paramount's new digital restoration of Byron Haskin's I Walk Alone (1948), featuring a trio of powerhouse players: Burt Lancaster, Kirk Douglas, and Lizabeth Scott. 
Opening weekend screenings, Friday, October 12–Sunday, October 14, will be introduced by author and FNF board member Alan K. Rode. Eddie Muller will take over hosting duties Friday, October 19–Sunday, October 21. The full NOIR CITY: D.C. schedule and tickets––plus the all-access NOIR CITY Pass––are available on the AFI Silver's website.
