Hungry for Film Noir?

posted by on May 14 at 15:24 PM

Over at SIFFblog, they’re wondering what’s up with the rumored Noir City mini-festival at SIFF Cinema.

As it happens I got an email from programmer Anita Monga with the final lineup last week. Here’s what’s playing at Seattle’s first Noir City (all double features priced at $10, many with an intro by Eddie Muller), running July 6-12 at SIFF Cinema:

July 6: Thieves’ Highway w/ Deadline at Dawn

July 7: Pitfall w/ Woman on the Run

July 8: Desert Fury w/ Leave Her to Heaven

July 9: 99 River Street w/ Framed

July 10: I Love Trouble w/ Pushover

July 11: The Spiritualist (AKA The Amazing Mr. X) w/ Nightmare Alley

July 12: Scarlet Street w/ Wicked Woman

Earlier, Monga had promised Jeopardy, which fell through, but it looks like a great lineup, with a healthy dose of shady Bs.

Glad to see DESERT FURY on the list. I've been dying to see that for yoinks. Technicolor noir! (LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN is a pretty bizarre Technicolor noir itself.)

Oh, that's exciting. And Scarlet Street is the only one I've seen already!

Spending July nights in an air-conditioned cinema showing classic noir will be dreamy...

You can never have too much Film Noir! Looks great!

You *can* have too much noir.

Doesn't SAM do a noir program at least once a year?

@4: Yep. But Greg Olson's programs are really meant to be a subscription series (at MOHAI, it's usually possible to get rush tickets, but not always), so this individually ticketed event is still diversifying the exhibition landscape. By the way, I should have mentioned that Jeopardy fell through for timing reasons and Monga says she hopes Olson books it.
