Film noir, what critic Roger Ebert once called“the most American film genre,” is known for low key lighting as dark as a killer’s heart, camera angles more skewed than a gumshoe’s moral compass, and weaving plots as convoluted as was to circumvent the production code.

Join us for a four month film series of dim lit alleys, ambivalent motivations, hapless hard drinking men and women who would just as soon kill you as love you.

Subscription includes a ticket to all 4 film screenings.

UPCOMING SCREENING: Mildred Pierce (1945)
When Mildred Pierce's (Joan Crawford) wealthy husband leaves her for another woman, Mildred decides to raise her two daughters on her own. Despite Mildred's financial successes in the restaurant business, her oldest daughter, Veda (Ann Blyth), resents her mother for degrading their social status. In the midst of a police investigation after the death of her second husband (Zachary Scott), Mildred must evaluate her own freedom and her complicated relationship with her daughter.
