Noir City 17

Noir City 17Noir City Film Festival reveals the dark side of mid-century America. Think the 1950s were buttoned-down and conservative? Think again.

Dive into Noir City 17 and experience the rush—through a lens, darkly—of a turbulent and transitional time in American history,
culture, and cinema. Nothing would ever be the same.

Celebrating its 17th year, Noir City, the largest annual film noir festival in the world, returns once again to the majestic Castro Theatre for a 10-night feast of danger, desire, and despair.

This year’s program extends last year’s chronological pairings of “A” and “B” from the 1940s into the 1950s, offering viewers a slate of films that track noir through the declining studio system and into a fresh cinematic landscape where noir was refashioned, both subtly and radically, for a new generation.
