NOIR CITY 2022: Moves to Grand Lake Theatre - Oakland!

The Film Noir Foundation Presents: NOIR CITY 19 • January 20-23, 2022 • Grand Lake Theatre


The NOIR CITY film festival, a Bay Area cultural institution since 2003, returns from COVID hiatus January 20-23, 2022 for an incisive and inspiring four-day festival at a new venue, Oakland's historic Grand Lake Theatre. Produced, programmed and hosted by Eddie Muller, this year's edition, subtitled "They Tried to Warn Us!", showcases 12 movies from mid-20th century Hollywood sure to resonate with contemporary viewers.

Included are shockingly prescient films focusing on megalomaniacal politicians, corrupt businessmen, neo-Nazis, racism, anti-Semitism, sexual predators, serial killers, police brutality—even a viral epidemic! This NOIR CITY program could not be more timely or topical. "That said, this isn't like taking your medicine," Muller notes. "It will be a restorative tonic for folks eager to see classic movies again on a big screen and enjoy, with the prescribed protocols*, a return to the party atmosphere NOIR CITY is famous for."
