Spotlight on Film Noir

The most popular film noir festival in the world is back! To coincide with the Noir City Film Festival, coming to the Castro Theatre in San Francisco January 25-February 3, 2013, we are spotlighting film noir "must-sees" for your enjoyment.

We've hand picked a selection of notorious classics and gripping rarities that best capture a genre defined by such characters as the hard-boiled detective, the dangerously alluring femme fatale and the well-heeled villain surrounded by gun-toting thugs.
