NOIR CITY Xmas Coming Next Week: San Francisco

NOIR CITY Xmas Coming Next Week!
Wednesday, December 18, 7:30 p.m., a special evening of yule cruelty! The Film Noir Foundation presents a dark holiday classic from south of the border—and reveals the entire schedule for NOIR CITY INTERNATIONAL II, a program of noir from around the globe, coming January 24–February 2, 2020, to the majestic Castro Theatre. 

This year there will be a screening of Roberto Gavaldon's La Otra /The Other (1946). Dolores del Río, one of the most beautiful actresses of all-time, stars in this noir-laden thriller as identical twins: María, a manicurist who lives in near-poverty, and her sister Magdalena, who married the wealthy man María once loved. When the estranged sisters reunite at the funeral of Magdalena's husband, María can't help but imagine how different life would be if she could only trade places with her sister. Uh-oh. Take a guess where this is headed. Co-starring José Baviera, Agustín Irusta, and Victor Junco, with extraordinary cinematography by the great Alex Phillips. 

Tickets for NOIR CITY XMAS available now at Brown Paper Tickets. Tickets will also be available at the Castro Theatre box office the day of the show.
