The Noir City Film Festival returns to Hollywood and begins April 1st and runs through April 20th at the Egyptian Theater. The Egyptian Theater originally opened in 1922 and was operated by Sid Grauman, who later built the world famous Grauman’s Chinese Theater across the street. What a great place it must be to watch film noir.
The Film Noir Foundation puts on the Noir City film festival, and it is a very important part of their public awareness campaign. They are really a great group of people doing difficult work to protect and preserve the lesser known, or rare films. They'll be showing twenty-eight films from the 1940s and 1950s during the festival. If you live close by, you really should go. The cost is very reasonable and the entertainment is priceless.
I'll be in the area for six days, and I have tickets to the following six movies: Wednesday April 13th, Female On The Beach and Hazard. Thursday April 14th Caught and Beware My Lovely. Friday April 15th, The Houston Story and New Orleans Uncensored.
If you will be attending, and you'd give me a chance to say hello, please email me!
