THE SNIPER

(1952, Columbia [Sony], 97 min.)
San Francisco is the backdrop for one of the first movies about a modern serial killer. Decades before such stories became commonplace, husband and wife writers Edna and Edward Anhalt researched dozens of actual cases to create this psychological "exposé;" of a murderous misfit who wants to be caught, but finds it too easy to slip into the margins of a bustling post-WWII metropolis. Arthur Franz gives an edgy performance as the psychologically scarred sniper, whose murderous trail leads viewers on a fascinating tour of mid-century San Francisco, from Pacific Heights through the back alleys of North Beach to the once-industrial China Basin.

3:30, 9:00
EXPERIMENT IN TERROR

(1962, Columbia Pictures, 123 min.)
Brand New 4K Digital Restoration!
A San Francisco bank teller (Lee Remick) is forced to be an accomplice to a daring robbery scheme when her sister (Stefanie Powers) is taken hostage by a perverted criminal genius. Glenn Ford is the taciturn old-school FBI agent charged with hunting down the mysterious mastermind. Typically light and breezy Blake Edwards shows masterful skill with suspense, ratcheting up the tension to Hitchcockian heights while making abundant and evocative use of actual San Francisco locales. More than a time capsule of the city circa 1962, this is arguably the most intense thriller ever set in San Francisco. NOIR CITY is proud to have been chosen by Sony Pictures to debut its digital restoration of this spine-tingling suspense classic!
